How to Get Started with Dragon 15?
The first step to use Dragon 15 is to choose or connect your microphone. Dragon will show all the available microphones, and which one is active currently.
Now, create a user profile which store all the information that Dragon uses such as to transcribe what you say and how you sound.
If you turn on the Dragon microphone by tapping on its icon, it means the Dragon is listening everything what you say. If it is turned off, the Dragon won’t be able to hear anything you say.
Make Your First Dictation
To make first dictation using Dragon, you need to open the Microsoft Word, Notepad or Dragon Pad and put the cursor on the document.
Now turn on the microphone and say sentences to dictate them. For a successful and fruitful dictation, you must know about the basic commands like “new paragraph”, “new line” and punctuation such as question mark, full stop, colon, etc. that Dragon understands.
You can also personalize the vocabulary and add specific words to it to reduce the frequency of errors occurred while using Dragon Dictation feature.
Whenever you feel that Dragon has recognized something what you dictated, you can say “Correct that” to make Dragon correct the error and dictate effectively.
