Most people are familiar, through science fiction films, with the concept of speech recognition. Unfortunately current software, although impressively fast and accurate, has not yet reached the total infallibility of its film counterparts in Star Trek or 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking® is a powerful productivity tool that can enable corporate, professional and home users to work faster and more efficiently. To reach the full potential, however, you need specialist equipment in the form of a fast computer, adequate RAM, an approved sound card and a professional microphone.
With appropriate hardware you can potentially dictate reports, memos and other documents; enter data into spreadsheets; fill in forms; send e-mail - all by voice at speeds of up to 160 words/minute. Using an approved handheld recorder you can also work away from the PC and allow the software to automatically transcribe the dictation at a later date.
To achieve maximum accuracy good diction and dictation skills are also important. The training we offer includes guidance on these aspects of using speech recognition software.
IT Speaking has carefully selected and tested the hardware and software components that allow you to utilise speech recognition to its full potential. These appear on the following pages.
