About Natural Language Commands


Natural Language Commands are Dragon commands based on natural, conversational speech. These commands allow you to perform actions in applications using fewer steps. For example, suppose you want to save a Microsoft Word document. Rather than saying "Click File" and then "Click Save", you could simply say, "Save Changes". Using Natural Language Commands, you don't have to memorize commands; simply say what comes naturally, like "Bold the last paragraph".

Dragon recognizes thousands of Natural Language Commands. To use them in supported applications, just say what you want Dragon to do.
