How to Use the Dragon Professional Individual Microphone: “Is This Thing On?”

By Stephanie Diamond

It can be amusing when you realize that your Dragon Professional Individual microphone has been on the entire time you took your last phone call. The words you dictated won’t look anything like what you said. There are pauses; you looked away and probably had the microphone pushed down below your chin. Quickly delete your dictation and put it out of your mind after you stop laughing.

Conversely, you realize the microphone was off during your dictation session. You know it’s your fault, but you would love to blame your Dragon assistant. Be fair.

Train yourself to think about the microphone position when you start and when you stop dictating. Click the microphone green for on and red for off.
