Use your voice for legal transcription and more

Dragon Legal can make you and your firm more productive, and also help you easily keep up with paperwork requirements.

  • It's fast. Macros automate and streamline repetitive manual processes for productivity increases. Secretaries now review a typed draft versus typing the whole document.
  • It's efficient. Dragon works with the applications you rely upon, including email, spreadsheets, word processors, databases, and more.
  • It streamlines transcription. Dragon’s Auto-Transcribe Folder Agent (ATFA) manages the flow of transcribed text and synchronized audio of digital voice recordings to streamline third-party review and correction.
  • It exports custom words. You can choose to export word properties in XML format when you export custom word lists for reuse in other user profiles.
  • It obtains recognition logs. Administrators can obtain a recognition log file for each end-user, to easily and quickly gather rich, objective usage information which can be used to give users targeted advice and measure return on investment.

Dragon success stories

Brad Wixen

On the go legal notes and summaries

Brad Wixen spends all day in his car driving to physicians’ offices and cross-examining them about their reports on behalf of other lawyers handling civil, malpractice, and workers comp cases. Previously, that meant waiting until he returned to his office before he could compile notes and create summaries. Because he uses Dragon, now he simply speaks everything he needs into an audio recorder while in his car and downloads the files to his computer, where Dragon creates transcripts of what he said. He estimates he saves half the time it used to take.
