Using Dragon NaturallySpeaking with Another Application

Part of the Dragon NaturallySpeaking For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The first step controlling other applications with Dragon NaturallySpeaking is to make the words you say appear in a window controlled by the other application. To get those first words to show up in the correct window, follow these steps:

  1. Open NaturallySpeaking and the other application.

    It doesn’t matter whether you open NaturallySpeaking or the other application first.

  2. Click the microphone icon in the DragonBar to turn the microphone on.

    If the icon is elevated, the microphone is on; if the icon is lying flat, the microphone is off. Change from one state to the other by clicking the microphone icon. By default, the microphone is off at startup.

  3. Activate the window of the other application.

    • If the application is already opened but not visible, you can say, “List Open Applications.”

      A numbered list of open applications pops up. Choose the application you want.

    • If the application has not been opened, say, "Open <application name>."

      The application should open and the cursor should be blinking in the text-editing window. If not, click in the text-editing window.
