How to Open the Command Browser in NaturallySpeaking

If NaturallySpeaking isn’t obeying your commands, it may not be recognizing your pronunciation. You can improve its recognition for many commands exactly as you would for word or phrase training.

Make sure you capitalize the words of the command properly. Check the documentation that comes with NaturallySpeaking for proper capitalization. Most words in NaturallySpeaking command phrases are initial-capped except for articles, prepositions, and other short words.

You can’t, however, train “dictation commands” this way. These commands are the ones that control capitalization and spacing, like No Caps On. To train those commands, use the Vocabulary Editor. Scroll to the top (above the “a”) of the list of words in the Vocabulary Editor. Click a command and then click the Train button.

Before you try command training, make sure that you pause correctly before and after a command. If NaturallySpeaking gets the words right but types them instead of doing them, pausing is more likely to be your problem than pronunciation.

To access the Command Browser from the Accuracy Center, click the Open the Command Browser link. Or you can choose Tools→Command Browser.

You can also add a new command by choosing Tools→Add New Command. Here you can easily type in and train a new command.

When using the Command Browser, you have several options:

  • Find specific applications: Click the Content drop-down menu to see if the particular application you're using has specific commands in NaturallySpeaking. Then you can peruse them to see what you need.

  • Train commands: By clicking a particular command, you can use the Train icon on the left side to train that command to understand your pronunciation.

  • Look at scripts: By choosing the Script icon on the left side, you switch from Browse mode to Script mode. Here you can directly create, delete, edit, or copy commands.

    Unless you know what you’re doing, stay in Browse mode.
