Bold, Italicize, and Underline Text in NaturallySpeaking
Dragon NaturallySpeaking provides commands like Bold That to change the style of a font. You can use the Set or Format commands to change the size or style of a font, to choose a new font family, or to change everything at the same time.
One way to create bold, italic, or underlined text is to select the text and then say, Bold That, Italicize That, or Underline That.
These three commands are equivalent to clicking the corresponding buttons (B, I, or U) on the toolbar. An unusual effect of making them work like the buttons is that these commands undo themselves. For example, if you select some underlined text and say Underline That, the underlining is removed.
To dictate bold, italic, or underlined text, follow these steps:
Move the cursor to the place in the document where you want the text to be.
Say, Bold That, Italicize That, or Underline That, depending on what kind of text you want to produce.
Dictate your text.
When text is already bold, italic, underlined, or some combination of all three, you can change it back to plain Roman text by selecting it and saying, Restore That.
The Format and Set commands can substitute for any of these commands. For example, the following three commands have the same effect:
Format That Bold
Set Font Bold
You can also use Format That or Set Font with Italics, Underline, or Regular. For example,
Set Font Regular and Format That Regular are equivalent to Restore That.
Set Font Bold and Format That Bold are equivalent to Bold That.
In version 11, you can also use Quick Voice Formatting commands for Bold, Underline, Italicize, Capitalize, Copy, Delete, and Cut by saying, "Select <text>" or "Select <start> through <end>," saying the command (for example, "Bold"), and then saying the words to which you want to apply the command.
To change the size of a font, you must know the point size that you want. If, for example, you want to change some text to 18 point, you can select it and say,
Set Size 18
Format That Size 18
