Dragon expands the possibilities of speech recognition innovation with a next-generation speech engine. It brings consistent, optimal accuracy with Deep Learning technology (as opposed to shallow learning) and adaptation techniques that continuously adjust to your voice or environmental variations while you’re dictating. This does not quite mean that you can dictate at a rock concert, but close.
Dragon eliminates barriers to productivity and creativity by letting you interact with your computer by voice. It turns your spoken thoughts into text annual voice commands into action so you don’t have to worry about the mechanics of typing and spelling. And not only allows you to dictate up to three times faster than typing, but also allows you to make edits and apply formatting by voice. Smart Format Rules automatically adapt to how you want abbreviations, dates, phone numbers, and more to appear, so you don’t have to correct them every time. Or perhaps you’re just one of those people who leave your mistakes in place and hope that others either won’t notice or will understand.
Dragon easily learns acronyms, proper names, and other unique or business-specific phrases that you frequently use so it captures your unique words the way you want. Like “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” In addition, you can import and export your custom word lists.
Create macros to automate multi-step workflows or business processes as simple voice commands. “Bring me money, lots of money” will most likely not work.
Dragon can automatically transcribe audio files from your digital voice recorder or smartphone. It leverages all the accuracy improvements gained from the state-of-the-art speech recognition engine for fewer post-corrections. The transcription process has been streamlined. Because acoustic and language model adaptation are automatically leveraged for the current user, no special training is required. You can also transcribe another single speaker’s voice from prerecorded audio files or podcasts. So if you’re wearing a wire to catch a bad guy, you don’t have to ask him to train a profile before you can get a transcription of his cited misdeeds.
Dragon Anywhere is a separate, cloud-based solution that provides continuous dictation capabilities, letting you create and edit documents of any length by voice directly on your smart phone. It adapts to your voice and terminology so you can dictate, edit, navigate and format fairly and accurately within your document, using your own customized words, shortcuts and commands, from anywhere at any time. Your profile in Dragon Anywhere syncs with the profile on your desktop PC, so all of your custom words commands travel with you.
With automatic microphone detection, Dragon will conveniently show you which microphones are available for you to use. Because Dragon let you use multiple audio devices with the same profile, you can easily switch to another microphone while keeping all your personalized preferences for accuracy and formatting. Microphones built into many of the latest laptops can be used directly, without a headset, or use a wireless, handhelds, Bluetooth, or desktop microphone, as you wish.
