Dragon NaturallySpeaking is amazing voice recognition software that lets you control the computer with your voice.
It almost sounds like science fiction, but the truth is that Dragon NaturallySpeaking totally surpassed our expectations. It seems that text-to-speech technology has improved a lot over the last few years, and Dragon NaturallySpeaking has clearly taken advantage of it.
The main drawback to Dragon NaturallySpeaking, like with any other voice recognition program, is that it requires some long, boring training – based mainly on reading texts to the computer. Also, the program isn't 100% accurate – something that we expected anyway – but its percentage of right words in dictation still remains certainly impressive.
After training Dragon NaturallySpeaking, the program is quite intuitive and easy to use. The interface is reduced to a small bar from which you can access all the main tools and functions: dictation, reading text aloud, improving accuracy, managing commands and vocabulary... and the best thing about Dragon NaturallySpeaking is that you don’t need to speak to the computer as if you were a robot. Just talk naturally, and it’ll pick it up.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking is seamlessly embedded in Windows, which means that as long as you have it running, you can start dictating in any application, from Notepad to Firefox. And of course, the functionality in Dragon NaturallySpeaking is not limited to dictation: you can also control the computer with your voice: open and close apps, browse the web, view files, and more.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking is, in other words, like one of those amazing voice-controlled computers you see in movies, only that this time it’s on your own PC!
