IGNITE MORE FUN AT YOUR PC
Dragon 12 Home lets you say words and watch them appear on your computer screen. It’s easy to install and fun to use, making even mundane PC tasks a lot more enjoyable. It changes the way you interact with your PC for the better so you can get through your “to-do” list faster than ever before.
IGNITE CREATIVITY BY CAPTURING YOUR SPOKEN THOUGHTS
Transform your ideas into text at the speed of thought; don’t let typing, spelling or fear of the blank page slow you down. Simply speak and Dragon captures your thoughts so you’ll never lose track of another great idea. Capture your thoughts quickly and completely, without having to keep your eyes fixed on the screen or keyboard. When it’s time to edit and revise your documents, use Dragon’s commands to breeze through the process. Dragon can even adapt its format rules by detecting your format corrections – abbreviations, numbers and more — so your dictated text looks the way you want it to every time.
IGNITE PRODUCTIVITY BY TURNING TALK INTO TEXT
Turn talk into text - three times faster than typing - with up to 99% recognition accuracy right out of the box. Dictate and edit documents, email and instant messages, Facebook and Twitter posts and more. Dragon 12 Home adapts to your voice and the words you use to deliver better recognition results over time. You can even personalise Dragon with acronyms, proper names and other unique phrases that you frequently use.
IGNITE CONVENIENCE BY USING YOUR FAVOURITE APPLICATIONS
In addition to DragonPad, the built-in text editor, you can use Dragon 12 Home with many of your favourite Windows applications. Dictate documents in Microsoft® Word, Corel® WordPerfect® or OpenOffice™ Writer send email in Microsoft Outlook® or Windows LiveMail, search the Web using Internet Explorer® or Mozilla® Firefox® or Google Chrome™, post to Facebook or Twitter and more - all by voice.
Dragon 12 Home even enhances the experience of using your voice with the most popular web-based email applications — Gmail and Hotmail/Outlook.com — offering Full Text Control and commands for the most frequent actions in Internet Explorer (32-bit, versions 9 and 10), Firefox and Chrome (for an up-to-date list of supported browsers, please visit our KnowledgeBase).
IGNITE SPEED WITH POWERFUL INTUITIVE VOICE COMMANDS
Dragon Voice Shortcuts™ collapse common multi-step tasks into direct voice commands you can use at any time, no matter which applications are currently active. For example, say: “Search the Web for licenced electricians in London” or “search Google for 87 divided by 12” and Dragon makes it happen. You can also say “open top site for Girl Scouts” and Dragon automatically opens the top-ranked page for these keywords. You can even use voice commands to create emails, schedule tasks and appointments and search your computer faster than ever before.
IGNITE COMFORT AND FREEDOM
With Dragon 12 Home, you can use your PC in a comfortable, ergonomic way without being tied to your keyboard and mouse. Launch applications, select menu items, “press” keys and switch from one window to another using simple voice commands. You can even use your compatible iOS or Android device as a wireless microphone for optimal convenience.
IGNITE EASE OF USE RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX
Thanks to the new interactive tutorial’s simulations, you can learn and practice good dictation, correction and editing habits so that you can create text efficiently within just a few minutes. The Dragon Help system contains a Tip of the Day window and other easy ways for you to quickly learn what interests you. The Dragon Sidebar puts important voice commands and tips in one convenient desktop location. And on-screen help means information is always available when you need it.
The install process checks that your system meets the minimum requirements; if they are not met, Dragon NaturallySpeaking will not be installed.
