Dragon Professional Software – Why It Is The Best On The Market
Technology has evolved dramatically over the last decade, and today’s business professionals are under an incredible amount of pressure to perform at the highest level in almost any situation.
This means it’s important to have the best tools at your disposal, and Dragon Professional Software allows you to make the most of your time—and excel at your job, whether you’re in an office, working remotely or on-the-go.
There are other speech recognition engines on the market, however the Dragon Professional range is a favourite across the world.
What is Dragon Professional Software?
Dragon allows people to talk into their computers and have what they say transcribed into writing instantly. It’s called speech recognition software, and it can be super helpful for those who have typing heavy roles or likewise struggle with typing or spelling.
Dragon is much more than a simple speech-to-text engine, it learns the way you speak for maximum accuracy and allows you to create Voice Shortcuts to save even more time.
How does it compare to other Professional Speech Recognition Engines?
Dragon is the world’s leading speech recognition engine, and if you need proof of this Microsoft just bought out Nuance (creators of Dragon) for a mind-blowing $19.7 billion, despite having their own rival speech recognition engine.
The Dragon engine is not only the most accurate, boasting up to 99% accuracy from first use, it is also the most feature full solution available on the market.
What are the unique features of Dragon Professional Software?
The most basic feature of Dragon Professional Software is the speech-to-text element. This allows users to dictate into a microphone, and the text will instantly appear on their PC. Or on their mobile app that is what they are using.
There are also other clever features that have been built into Dragon Professional Software which isn’t available in other engines, allowing for even more time savings, including:
Correcting – this allows the speech recognition software to learn your voice, if it’s not picking up a word you can correct it and it will get it right next time
Adding words – with this feature you can use words that aren’t in the standard dictionary, such as last names like mine which is “Beke”
AutoTexts – this is the ability to insert standard phrases and paragraphs by using a simple voice commands such as “insert privacy summary”
AutoCommands – this feature allows you to navigate your PC entirely by voice including calling up templates such as “open SLA template”
