We missed our Tuesday tip this week, so today is a two-for-Thursday, with tips for both Mac and PC!

Here’s a quick Thursday tip for folks using Dragon NaturallySpeaking on the PC:

You can have playback occur automatically with Correction. On the Correction tab of the Options dialog, check Automatic Playback on Correction. This is particularly helpful as you first learn to use Dragon; you may want to turn it off after a few weeks of practice.

And here’s a quick Thursday tip for folks using Dragon Dictate for Mac:

To correctly format times so that Dragon inserts the colon and double-zero for the top of the hour, instead of inserting “o’clock,” be sure to specify AM or PM after the time (e.g., say “seven forty-five PM” to generate 7:45 PM).  

Let us know if you have any suggestions for Dragon tips or questions that you’d like us to address. We’ll do our best to feature as many as we can here each week!

Here’s a quick Thursday tip for folks using Dragon Dictate for Mac:
