Most conversation rattles along at around 120 words a minute but even the best professional typists are hard pushed to keep up recording at this rate.
Speech recognition software like Dragon NaturallySpeaking answers the conundrum of “why type when you can talk?”
It allows the user to create email, documents and spreadsheets simply by speaking. And that’s after you’ve told your PC to get started and which program to use.This revolutionary and easy-to-use product turns your voice into text three times faster than most people type, with up to 99 percent accuracy.
Right out of the box it learns to recognise your voice and improves the more you use it. Other nifty features are the ability to transcribe recorded speech into text and being Bluetooth wireless headset capable (in the Preferred and higher editions only).
In under 20 minutes you can be up and running, and that much more productive. Investing in technology that can more than halve document creation time has got to be an economically viable option. A noise-cancelling headset is included.
There are several editions of Dragon available with the Professional Solution allowing specialty vocabularies such as medical, legal and more.
