Dragon makes it easy to get started with speech recognition and to become proficient quickly with regular use. It’s also simple to explore more advanced features that can boost your productivity even further.
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.
Dragon not only lets you dictate up to three times faster than typing, but it also allows you to select text, make edits and apply formatting using your voice to make easy work of document creation. 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, numbers and more to appear, so you don’t have to correct them every time.
Launch applications, select menu items, execute key functions, switch between windows, search the Web, create and send emails and more — all by voice. It gives you the flexibility to:
Dragon gives you robust voice command and control as well as Full Text Control (full voice-driven editing and command capabilities) within many popular applications you use every day, enabling you to create documents and zip through computer tasks in record time.

With automatic microphone detection, Dragon will conveniently show you which microphones are available for you to use. With Dragon you can also use multiple audio device types within the same profile, meaning that you can easily switch to another microphone while keeping all your personalised preferences for accuracy and formatting. This is useful if, for example, you use a USB mic at home, a wireless mic at school, and your laptop’s built-in mic when you’re on the go. You have the option to use:
Dragon’s text-to-speech capability is a natural-sounding synthesised voice that reads designated text to you. It not only speeds and eases proofreading, but it also supports new levels of multi-tasking.
The install process checks that your system meets the minimum requirements; if they are not met, Dragon NaturallySpeaking will not be installed.
Note: Supports Microsoft Office 2010 & 2013. Does not support dictation into Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems. For EMR support, please use Dragon Medical Practice Edition.
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.
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.
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.
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.
