Here’s a quick Tuesday Tip for folks using Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 for the PC:
When you give commands that quote from your text (e.g. “Select <xyz>” to select and format a specific word in your document), Dragon numbers all matching instances, so you can affect multiple instances at once or disambiguate. Dragon 12 now includes an option to turn this feature off if you prefer, so that your command directly applies to the nearest match.

Here’s a quick Thursday Tip for folks using Dragon Dictate for Mac 3:

Dragon Dictate comes with a large repertory of built-in words with cor­rect capitalization and spacing. So, before using these commands, try saying your word (or look it up in the Vocabulary Editor window) to see what Dragon Dictate does. For example, Dragon Dictate handles correctly such terms as “CD-ROM” and “FreeBSD” without your having to worry about spacing, hyphenation, or capitalization.

Here’s a quick Tuesday Tip for folks using Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 for the PC:

In applications for which Dragon does not have Full Text Control (represented by the check mark indicator on the DragonBar), Dragon 12 will automatically open the Dictation Box.  For example, when using Google Docs it is suggested that you use the Dictation Box so that you can enjoy Dragon’s normal capabilities as you dictate, correct, and edit your text. Note that this automatic opening is an optional setting, which by default is enabled but can be changed on the Miscellaneous tab of the options dialog. If you disable this option you can always launch the Dictation Box by saying “Open Dictation Box.”

Here’s a quick Tuesday Tip for folks using Dragon NaturallySpeaking for the PC:

If you’re using Dragon for work, your employer may be able to give you some lists that could save you time, particularly if they are already in electronic form: lists of staff or clients, departments, units or divisions, products, trademarks, building names, as well as glossaries of terms and acronyms can be added into your vocabulary so they’ll be more easily recognizable when you dictate later. (for more info see pg. 17 in the workbook)
