Dragon NaturallySpeaking lets you produce with voice commands many of the same results that formatting buttons and icons produce in other applications. For example, to change the alignment of a paragraph in NaturallySpeaking, move the cursor into the paragraph and use one of the following voice commands:

  • Center That

  • Left-Align That

  • Right-Align That

(If you’re currently dictating a paragraph, you don’t have to move the cursor; it is already in the right paragraph. Just speak the command.)

To change the alignment of up to 20 consecutive paragraphs, follow these steps:

  1. Move the cursor to the beginning of the first paragraph.

  2. Say, “Select Next <number> Paragraphs,” where <number> is the number of paragraphs you want to realign.

    For example, say, “Select Next Two Paragraphs.”

  3. Say, “Center That,” “Left-Align That,” or “Right-Align That.”

    This figure shows what happens when you select two paragraphs and say, “Right-Align That.”

To change the alignment of the entire document, follow these steps:

  1. Say, “Select Document.”

  2. Say, “Center That,” “Left-Align That,” or “Right-Align That.”

You can use the Format command to substitute for any of the alignment commands.

  • Format That Centered gives the same result as Center That.

  • Format That Left Aligned gives the same result as Left-Align That.

  • Format That Right Aligned gives the same result as Right-Align That.
