Train Dragon to Recognize Your Voice, Vocabulary, and Writing Style
After NaturallySpeaking has tested and adjusted your speakers and microphone, it’s ready to listen to you speak. This training will take all of 4 minutes. Follow these steps:
To start training, begin at the screen shown.
You are presented with three training options. Unless you have done this many times before and know what to choose, select Show Text with Prompting. If you have a speech challenge that must be noted by Dragon, choose Show Text without Prompting. If you have no time to train at this time, choose Skip Training. But you must come back to it later.
Choose Show Text with Prompting and click Next.
At the Read Training Text screen, click Go and read aloud the sentences as prompted by the arrow. You will read several prompts and then move to general reading. The prompts are Welcome to general training and Training is about to begin.
You are asked to select some text to read.
You can choose the text that you find most interesting. But, because you aren’t making a major time commitment, go ahead and choose What to Expect from Speech Recognition. This gives you a head start on training.
Read the text. When you hear a beep and see a screen that says Congratulations, You Have Finished Training, yell YES! and click the OK button.
Dragon will take a few minutes to adapt your User Profile, so expect a pause here.
