Individuals with accessibility issues, from carpal tunnel and RSI to learning disabilities, face unique challenges when it comes to using a computer. The keyboard and mouse become barriers to productivity, not to mention a cause of pain and frustration. Stop typing and put your voice to work to create and edit documents, send email and more.
By taking away the mechanical aspects of typing, Dragon provides a more efficient way to control a computer that is less physically and cognitively taxing for those with impairments that may make typing painful or impossible. Dragon turns talk into text, transcribing up to 160 words a minute. Just speak and the words appear on the computer screen, instantly.
For users who suffer from arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, Dragon changes the way they interact with the computer. They can be fully productive without aggravating their condition. For others, using Dragon speech recognition can help prevent repetitive stress injuries in the first place.
Dragon speech recognition has become an invaluable tool for people with accessibility issues that can make typing difficult or painful. Create documents, access data, or navigate a computer desktop - simply by speaking.
Fulfilling career dreams
When Dr. Glen House broke his neck and injured his spinal cord while skiing, he didn't let the accident prevent him from fulfilling his dream of a medical career. He uses Dragon to dictate clinical notes. "It keeps costs down because I don't need a medical transcriptionist, which is 10-12 cents a line and really adds up fast," he explains. "I easily dictate 10-12 pages of notes per day, at a minimum, and it can be as much as 50 pages per day sometimes."
Freedom to concentrate on writing
A few years ago, Evan Upchurch was a Microsoft employee working in the usability group, where he wrote reports to help the product teams understand how people use software. When he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, colleagues encouraged him to try Dragon. It enabled him to easily transition from using his hands to using his voice for nearly every aspect of computer usage.
