DRAGON Naturally Speaking Home Edition Review

image
“Dragon NaturallySpeaking Home speech recognition software lets you interact with your PC just by talking! It understands what you say and how you say it. Speak words and they appear on the screen — three times faster than typing. Tell your PC what to do and it does it. Use your favorite applications to create documents and email, surf the Web, update Facebook, and more. Dragon Home is so fast, easy and fun; you’ll wonder how you managed without it!”
imageI had the pleasure of reviewing Dragon Naturally Speaking and I have to say, I am utterly amazed and I also have a huge sense of relief. As a freelance writer, I spend many, many long hours per week at the keyboard. Dragon has already made my work so much easier in the short time I have used it.
I thought the “idea” of being able to speak into a microphone and have my words automatically show up on my screen would be wonderful, but then the thought crossed my mind of having the difficult task of setting it up. I just assumed setting it up would be so difficult. Just like any other voice recognition device, you have to “train” the device to recognize your voice. I just imagined the process to be exhausting and difficult.
However, it was not difficult at all. In fact, after the few minutes it took to install the program, both my husband and I have been using it non-stop.

Dragon let’s you set up “profiles”. So we set up my profile and my husband’s profile. It recognizes both of our voices.
Mike, my husband likes to write short stories but he has refused to type anything & hand writes it all. He hates the computer and won’t get near it. Mike has been using Dragon Naturally Speaking non-stop and  now, thanks to Dragon, he is doing all of his writing on the computer.
As for me, I am in LOVE with Dragon Naturally Speaking!!!! It has made my life so much easier. I don’t have to waste time on the mouse pad or typing out my daily posts. I write on a total of 4 sites so Dragon Naturally Speaking has really saved me tons of time.
With Dragon Home, you can say words and watch them appear on your computer screen in OpenOffice Writer, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, and more. You can also speak commands and your computer will obey! You just tell your computer what you want to do, such as “Open Windows Live Writer”. You can create documents, manage your email, or surf the Web — all by voice. Dragon  will recognize your voice and even work with accents and they ‘way’ you talk. It learns your voice better over time. You can personalize Dragon with your own words and formatting preferences tailored to what you do and how you do it.
I would recommend Dragon Naturally Speaking to ALL my bloggy friends, work at home moms and everyone in between!! Dragon has made my life easier and I am sure it would make your life easier too!!
