Browse the Web Using NaturallySpeaking
Web browsers provide multiple ways to open a web page or to get from one web page to another, as does Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Your first page opens when you start Internet Explorer (unless you start it by selecting an entry from the Start→Internet Explorer→Favorites menu).
From there, you can move around on the web by choosing links; clicking toolbar buttons; entering a web address into the Address box; or jumping to a page for which you have stored its location on the Favorites menu.
Linking from one web page to another
One useful feature you can use while browsing is the capability to click a link on a web page by saying all or part of its text label. For example, suppose that you are viewing the web page shown, the Newsroom page of the Nuance website, and you want to click the link labeled Always On: Must-Have Apps for New Smartphone Owners.
All you have to do is say, Always on. IE searches the links visible in the Internet Explorer window to see if any of them contain that text. Because one and only one such link appears on the page, the linked page is chosen.
Pick whatever part of the link’s text label is easiest to say. For example, if you want to link to a news story 1331 injured in Ulan Bator earthquake, say, Injured or Earthquake. Either should be sufficient to tell NaturallySpeaking which link you want.
If the link is an image, say, Image. NaturallySpeaking selects all the images visible in your viewing window and numbers them. Then simply choose the number of the image you want by saying, Choose <image number>. If you know the text label of the image (it is displayed while the image loads), select it by name, just as you would any text link.
Dictating to the Address box
The Address box is the textbox at the bottom of the browser’s toolbar, the one that shows the web address of the current page. Say, Go To Address to move the cursor into the Address box. Then dictate the address you want and say, Go There.
You can start a web search by dictating, Question mark <search terms> into the Address box and then saying, Go There. For example, if you are looking for articles about McDonald's franchises in Antarctica, say, Question mark, McDonalds, comma, Antarctica. When ?McDonald’s, Antarctica appears in the Address box, say, Go There.
The most recent 25 web addresses that were typed or dictated into your Address box are kept on a list that drops down from the Address box. To make it drop down, get the cursor into the Address box, and then say, Press Alt Down Arrow. Naturally, Press Alt Up Arrow makes the list retract again.
Move up or down the list with the Move Up/Down commands, like Move Down Three. After you select an address from the list, say, Press Enter to tell your browser to go there.
