About Dragon Dictation

Dragon Dictation is an automated dictation program that turns spoken words into editable text. In the full version, users can enter text into any application on their computer by speaking into a microphone. Over time, the software improves accuracy by learning the voice and pronunciation of the user. 

Dragon Dictation Review

What's it about?

Dragon Dictation transcribes users’ spoken words into text. The application is beneficial to users who have difficulty writing down their thoughts and ideas, or for users learning how to create longer pieces of writing. Dragon Dictation requires users to speak commands to enter punctuation, start new lines or paragraphs, or use symbols such as “$” or “&.” Because of this, users must be mindful of the content they are producing, concentrate on things like structure and formatting, and focus on things like using necessary punctuation and syntax.

How it will benefit?

Dragon Dictation is helpful for students who struggle to put their thoughts into writing. By allowing users to dictate stream of consciousness, Dragon Dictation removes the pressure some students feel to put words on the page. Being able to concentrate solely on ideas, rather than working to type at the same time, the application can help users who struggle to be productive with their writing. Creating a first draft or brainstorming possible ideas is as simple as speaking out loud.
