NaturallySpeaking Commands for Internet Explorer
Using NaturallySpeaking with Internet Explorer (IE) lets you do your entire web browsing by voice, efficiently, without having to touch a mouse or keyboard. Of course, you can use them if you want — do whatever is most comfortable for you. Be aware that you must choose either IE or Firefox when you use NaturallySpeaking, even if you regularly use some other browser.
You can give Internet Explorer commands in several ways:
Natural Language commands
In addition, you can use the same Move and Go commands that work in the NaturallySpeaking DragonPad, like Go To Top/Bottom or Move Down Three Paragraphs. You can also use the mouse voice commands to click toolbar buttons or links on web pages, but usually one of the other techniques achieves the same result more easily.
The table shows how to replace the Internet Explorer toolbar buttons with Natural Language, keyboard, or menu voice commands.
