New Dragon Naturally Speaking 13 Home Edition Features


Say hello to a faster, more accurate Dragon 13
Whether you’re a parent, student, retiree or busy multi-tasker, Dragon 13 Home offers you an easy way to complete everyday tasks on your computer with your voice. Perfect for speech recognition newbies.

Nicknames and inside jokes welcome
Dragon learns the words and phrases you use the most and can adapt to spell even difficult words and proper names correctly. And by using the Vocabulary Editor, add single words or phrases for more accurate dictation as you go.

Hands full? No headset? No problem
Search for a recipe while chopping onions or complete a homework assignment with your hands behind your head. With Dragon 13 you can dictate text in more places, with multiple microphone options including the one built-into your laptop. So you can go both hands-free and headset free.

Proofread with your ears
Check your assignments, memos and letters quickly and easily. Dragon’s natural-sounding text-to-speech or audio playback of your own dictation takes the reading out of proofreading.

Better just got easier
Start using Dragon within minutes of opening the box. The enhanced intuitive design and helpful tutorials make it easy to use and master working with Dragon.
