How To Use Web Shortcuts with NaturallySpeaking

Many of the activities you normally perform on the Internet are supported by new special shortcuts created by Nuance. Take advantage of these shortcuts because you can use them no matter where you are. Check the Command browser to see a complete listing, which includes the following commands:

  • Searching the web: Use Google, Bing, or another search tool to find anything (well, not your misplaced car keys!). For example, say, “Search Google for patio furniture,” and your browser opens the search in Google and displays the results.

  • Searching using specific search categories: These include images, video, news, maps, or products. For example, say, “Search video for fossils.”

  • Searching a specific well-known site: Find exactly what you want at a specific website. Speak the website name, such as Google, Yahoo!, Bing, Amazon, and eBay, in your command. For example, say, “Search Amazon for Dragon NaturallySpeaking For Dummies.”

  • Searching using a web address: If you want to go to a specific website, say, “Go to address bar” and then say the URL you want to go to, as in “Red Cross dot org.”

View the shortcut options for the web and other commands by choosing Tools→Options→Commands.
