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 gate. Create and edit documents, dictate homework assignments, send emails, update social posts and more. Dragon Home adapts to your voice and the words you use to deliver better recognition results over time. You can even have Dragon learn new words as you make document corrections. Dragon also adapts 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 convenience by using your favorite applications
In addition to DragonPad, the built-in text editor, you can use Dragon Home with popular Windows applications. Dictate documents with Full Text Control in Microsoft® Word, send email in Microsoft Outlook®, search the Web using Internet Explorer® or Mozilla® Firefox® or Google Chrome™, post to Facebook or Twitter and more - all by voice. Dragon Home even enhances the experience of using your voice with the most popular web-based email application – Gmail - offering Full Text Control and commands for the most frequent actions in Internet Explorer 11, and the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
Ignite versatility using popular pc platforms
Dragon Home works on major Windows® form factors, including today’s popular touchscreen PCs and tablets, so you can enjoy the versatility of interacting with your PC and favorite applications whether at home or in school. And with Dragon Home, there is no need for an internet connection to begin turning your talk into text.
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 Google for licensed electricians in New York” 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. Or use voice commands to create emails, schedule tasks and appointments and search your computer faster than ever before.
Ignite comfort and freedom
With Dragon Home, you can help prevent repetitive stress injuries by using 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 select from multiple microphone options, including Bluetooth, plug-in headset, or even the microphone built right into your Windows PC/tablet.
Deep Learning Technology for improved accuracy
- Improved Accuracy: Dragon Home is the most intelligent speech recognition solution available. With a next generation speech engine with the latest Nuance® Deep Learning™ technology, it delivers up to 99% recognition accuracy as soon as you start dictating, without the need for training. Dragon speech recognition technology constantly learns and adapts to your unique voice and environmental variations – even while you’re dictating – to deliver new levels of personalized accuracy and productivity. This optimal accuracy is achieved even for speakers with accents and in slightly noisy environments. This means that Dragon understands you, and you get things done faster than ever. And when you do need to make a correction, Dragon learns, making it more accurate the more you use it.
- Simplified Menus and Options: Enjoy using a simplified Dragon bar and streamlined interface that eliminates complex menus and options, so you can quickly select the options you need and start turning your voice into text using Dragon right away.
- Playback Mode: Now with the ability to select a block of text and “play that back” listening to your own voice, Dragon Home makes reviewing and editing your content a breeze. Listen to your dictation while Proofreading your document and make edits and corrections faster as you become even better with your dictation.
