How To Personalize Your NaturallySpeaking Vocabulary

Personalizing your Dragon NaturallySpeaking vocabulary involves two functions. The first is vocabulary editing, which lets you add words to the NaturallySpeaking vocabulary and, optionally, train NaturallySpeaking in how you say those words. It also lets you add custom phrases that translate into text. For example, you can say, “My Address” and NaturallySpeaking types your address.

You can directly add words to the NaturallySpeaking active vocabulary. The Vocabulary Editor is your tool to add or delete any word you have added but no longer use. It also has special features that allow you to do any of the following:

  • Train NaturallySpeaking in your own, personal pronunciation of a word, for better recognition.

  • Add special words or phrases to the vocabulary, like your company name, properly capitalized or hyphenated, or jargon that you use in your profession.

  • Give awkward words or phrases a different “spoken form” to make dictation easier, like saying, “My E-mail” for <youremail@yourcompany.com>. These are called shortcuts.

  • Come up with alternative ways to say words, punctuation, or whitespace characters, like saying “Full Stop” for a period.

Although these are mouse commands here, you can use voice commands to control the Vocabulary Editor, too.

The second function for personalizing Dragon is vocabulary building, which uses documents and e-mails to build your existing vocabulary. From the Accuracy Center click Add a New Word or Phrase.
