Web search

Search, surf, and browse the Web by voice

Use your voice to search the Web using Internet Explorer®, Mozilla Firefox® or Google Chrome. Search for recipes, information, directions and more. And with Dragon Voice Shortcuts, you can even collapse common multi-step tasks into direct voice commands, no matter which applications are currently active. For example, say “Search Google for 87 divided by 12” and Dragon makes it happen.
