Dragon Naturally Speaking, for overcoming disabilities Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice recognition, allows you to fully control a PC by talking and using voice commands. It levels the playing field. It's the Equalizer. By just talking, you can dictate and edit memos, create letters, address envelopes, create reports, fax and print documents. You can also move the cursor around the screen and control mouse clicks, all completely by voice. Do all this work as fast, if not even faster, than someone with years of typing and PC experience. Upper body injuries: Voice Recognition allows the user to create any type of document entirely by voice control. Without touching a keyboard or mouse, you can load programs, control a PC, open documents, surf the Internet, and create, send and receive e-mail. Also, fill out forms, modify text, move around within documents, control the mouse and the printer. Speech impairments: Voice Recognition systems learn the way the user makes speech sounds. The system even accommodates those with respirators or degenerative diseases. Voice macros can be created to type whole sentences, and control the functions of the computer, by the user saying different sounds of the users choosing. Vision impairments: Voice Recognition allows the user to type by voice, plus get audio feedback to acknowledge the users dictation and commands were understood. For example, say “Paragraph New”, and the PC presses the enter key twice and announces it has started a new paragraph. Included with the Voice program is a screen reading program that reads the words on the screen, allowing the user to hear back what has been typed. The screen reading aspect can also be used to read other text you may have on the PC, (e-mails, letters, and other text). The users voice is also stored, allowing an assistant to proofread the document, clicking on any word in question. The assistant hears the user actually saying that word in question, so they can correct the word without asking the user. Learning disabilities: Voice recognition technology can be of great benefit to people of all ages that suffer from learning disabilities. The screen reading functions within the program are of great benefit for dyslexia and reading problems. By being able to dictate what they’re thinking , the system keeps up with the users thoughts, getting those ideas quickly down on paper. Also by providing visual reinforcement of their words on the screen, it helps to organize what they are trying to communicate.  They can later edit and organize their text into completed works. Completely Control your PC and Environment by Voice Speech recognition is especially helpful for those with severe physical disabilities. You can control the mouse, by using voice commands. You can move or drag the mouse around the screen and press the mouse buttons, all by voice. Surf the internet, and send and receive e-mail, totally by voice. Have the PC type long complicated e-mail addresses, just by saying a command of your choosing, ("Bob address"). Move around within internet web sites, and jump to links by voice. Go right to your favorite web locations by saying command names of your choosing. Scroll through web pages and fill out web input forms, all through voice commands. Voice recognition for the deaf and hard of hearing See the iCommunicator demonstration in our Demonstration page, to see software for deaf and hard of hearing individuals.  This software was recently featured on ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition. This software takes a hearing persons speech, and translates it into American Sign Language for the deaf person to see. Users Testimony “Voice Recognition allows me to fully use a computer. I used it to get a job as a TV writer. Thanks for your companies training, and for this technology. V. C. “I continued to work, injuring myself to the point of not being able to work at all. For me, its greatest benefit is that it enables me to perform repetitive tasks by voice. I could use it to say ‘close document’ versus using a keyboard command or the mouse.” She can print out ten different segments of the manual she is working on, by giving voice commands, rather than pulling down the menus for ‘open document, print document, and close document’ each time for ten segments. B. L. Suffering from severe tendonitis in her wrists, Judge C. B. uses voice recognition to write letters, save and print the documents, send e-mail, and browse through legal research software. She makes full use of her computer by giving voice commands and dictation to convert her spoken words into written text on her computer screen. Ninth grader M. H., uses voice recognition to help her with her learning disability of dyslexia. She says, “The problem is I think faster than I write - so I skip things.
