Dragon Nuturally Speaking Home Edition

End the pain of typing once and for all

Give your wrists a rest

Repetitive stress issues like carpal tunnel make the things other people take for granted impossible for you. Like typing up a report or completing a spreadsheet or sending an email. That takes a more permanent solution than a wrist brace. What you need to do is quit typing and start talking.

Use your computer, pain-free

Dragon turns your voice into text, transcribing up to 160 words a minute. Just speak and the words appear on the computer screen, instantly. So you can do what you need to without touching your keyboard or mouse.

Dragon in action

The perfect tool for carpal tunnel or other accessibility issues.

Stop the pain and frustration of typing and use your voice to create and edit documents, send email and more.

Control your mouse. Using commands such as “move mouse lower left” and “mouse double-click,” you have the ability to create a mouse click action – simply by speaking.

Control your desktop applications. At any time, use your voice to open an item located on your desktop. For instance, to open a folder called “projects,” simply say “open projects.”

Control your keyboard. With commands like, “press enter,” press escape,” or “press down,” you have the ability to execute a keystroke – with your spoken words.

Limit manual actions. If you need to make a calculation such as “search Google for 87 divided by 52”, that entails a lot of uncomfortable keystrokes, for example, simply tell Dragon and it searches for you.
