How To Use the Word-Processor NaturallySpeaking DragonPad
The NaturallySpeaking window’s menu and toolbar may seem familiar to you. They are, with the addition of speech features, the same as the menu and toolbar in WordPad (the small-scale word processor that comes with Windows).
If you’re already familiar with WordPad or similar word processors, you can move right on to dictating.
Even if you have never used DragonPad, if you have used any word processor, you’ll find all the choices on the NaturallySpeaking menus and toolbars so familiar (except for the speech-related choices) that you’ll hardly need this section. But just in case you aren’t familiar, following are the details, as shown.
Use the NaturallySpeaking menu bar and toolbar buttons as you would in any Windows program. As with most Windows toolbars, pause your mouse cursor over a button to see the button’s name or function.
Because you’re running NaturallySpeaking, you can also choose items on the menu bar by using voice commands (as you can in nearly any other application, too). To choose from the menu bar, follow these steps:
Use the verbal command, "Click <menu text>."
By <menu text>, the command means anything listed on the menu bar, such as File, Edit, or Format.
Choose an item from the menu that appears by saying its name.
If you want consistency in your commands, you can instead say "Click" and then its name. For instance, you can say, Click File and then say, Save.
