Use your voice to dictate documents or enter text anywhere you normally type

Dragon eliminates barriers to productivity and creativity by letting you interact with your computer by voice. It turns your spoken thoughts into text and your voice commands into action so you don’t have to worry about the mechanics of typing and spelling. You can easily switch between keyboard, mouse and voice so you can use the mode of input you prefer for any given task.

Dragon not only lets you dictate up to three times faster than typing, but it also allows you to make edits and apply formatting using your voice. You can select text and apply formatting such as bold, underline, capitals and more, or just speak to make needed changes. 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.

Dragon gives you robust voice command and control as well as Enhanced Dictation (or Full Text Control), for fully voice-driven editing and command capabilities within many popular business applications that you use every day. Create documents such as reports, emails, forms and notes and zip through computer tasks in record time.

 

Create custom words and vocabulary

Dragon Professional Individual 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. In addition, you can import and export your custom word lists.

 

Create custom voice commands for inserting frequently-used text and graphics

With Dragon Professional Individual, it’s quick and easy to create custom voice commands. This feature lets you insert a standard reply, a signature block, a logo, a form template or other boilerplate content by speaking a simple command for significant time savings.

 

Automate business processes with time-saving macros

Create macros to automate multi-step workflows or business processes via simple voice commands. For example, send an email to your sales distribution list, copy the senior management team, and print a hard copy for your files by saying something like, “Send standard sales distribution email.”

 

Transcribe your recordings from audio files

Dragon Professional Individual supports Nuance-approved digital voice recorders and smart phones for advanced recording functionality and can automatically transcribe the audio files to text back at your PC. It leverages all the accuracy improvements gained from the state-of-the-art speech recognition engine for fewer post-corrections.

The transcription process features a fully streamlined setup for your own voice. Because acoustic and language model adaptation are automatically leveraged for the current user, no special training is required.

You can also accurately transcribe another single speaker’s voice from pre-recorded audio ?les or from podcasts. No additional training is needed to transcribe third-party speakers*, so you can complete transcription quickly and accurately.

Depending on your preference, you may take notes by recording your voice into an audio device for later transcription, or you can work with the Dragon Anywhere mobile app for immediate, professional-grade dictation. Dragon Professional Individual lets you work the way you want to optimise your productivity while on the road.

*Transcription of third-party speakers may require an additional license for each unique speaker.

 

Sync with separate Dragon Anywhere mobile solution

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 iOS or Android device. It adapts to your voice and terminology so you can dictate, edit, navigate and format quickly and accurately within your document - using your own customised words, shortcuts and commands - from anywhere, at any time. You can share documents and sync custom words and commands with Dragon Professional Individual for seamless productivity wherever your job takes you. Gain immediate access to your dictation so can spend less time behind a desk completing administrative tasks and more time contributing to your bottom line.

 

Work easily on popular form factors including touchscreens

Dragon is optimised for popular form factors such as portable touchscreen PCs so you can experience new levels of documentation productivity on the go. It’s great for today’s new PCs including highly mobile devices with hybrid touch and keyboard interaction modes.

 

Command and control your computer by voice for convenience and comfort

Launch applications, select menu items, press keys, switch between windows, search the Web, create and send emails and more all by voice, if you wish. Dragon Professional Individual gives you the flexibility to:

  • Work hands-free, if desired
  • Experience more ergonomic comfort when working on your computer
  • Feel less stress and strain on your body
  • Multitask by using your voice to dictate and execute commands
 

Simplify proofreading with natural-sounding text-to-speech or audio playback

Dragon’s text-to-speech capability is a natural-sounding synthesised voice that reads designated text to you, thereby simplifying proofreading and supporting new levels of multi-tasking. With Dragon Professional Individual, you can also listen to audio playback of your own dictation with the associated text highlighted on the screen.

 

Choose your microphone option for freedom and flexibility

With automatic microphone detection, Dragon Professional Individual will conveniently show you which microphones are available for you to use. Because Dragon lets you use multiple audio device types within the same profile, you can easily switch to another microphone while keeping all your personalised preferences for accuracy and formatting. This feature is useful if, for example, you use a USB microphone at home, a wireless microphone at work and your laptop’s built-in microphone when you’re on the go.

  • Microphones built into many of the latest laptops: You’re free to dictate documents and speak commands directly into your laptop without using a headset
