The fastest and most accurate way to interact with your computer
Use your voice to dictate documents or enter text anywhere you normally type
Dragon eliminates barriers to productivity and creativity by letting you interact with your computer by voice. It turns your spoken thoughts into text and your voice commands into action so you don’t have to worry about the mechanics of typing and spelling.
Edit and format documents—all by voice
Dragon not only lets you dictate up to three times faster than typing, but it also allows you to make edits and apply formatting using your voice. You can select text and apply formatting such as bold, underline, capitals and more, or just speak to make needed changes.
Smart Format Rules automatically adapt to how you want abbreviations, numbers and more to appear, so you don’t have to correct them every time.
Create and export custom words
Take industry specific terms and acronyms you’ve added, and share them easily with another user in your office or company so they don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
Import/export custom word lists and vocabulary
Dragon Professional Individual easily learns acronyms, proper names and business-specific terminology and phrases you frequently use to capture your unique vocabulary the way you want. You can even import and export your custom word lists to share with colleagues.
Create custom voice commands for inserting frequently-used text and graphics
With Dragon Professional Individual, it’s quick and easy to create custom voice commands to quickly insert frequently-used text and graphics. This feature saves time and effort by letting you insert a standard reply, a signature block, a logo, or other boilerplates by speaking a simple command.
Automate business processes with time-saving macros
Create macros to automate simple workflows or multi-step business processes via simple voice commands. For example, send an email to your sales distribution list, copy the senior management team, and print a hard copy for your files by saying something like, “Send standard sales distro email.”
Sync with separate Nuance Dragon Anywhere mobile app
Dragon Anywhere is a separate, cloud-based app that provides continuous dictation capabilities, letting you create and edit documents of any length by voice—using your own customized vocabularies, shortcuts and commands—directly on your iOS or Android device.
Enjoy superior voice command and control in many popular applications
Dragon gives you robust voice command and control as well as Full Text Control (full voice-driven editing and command capabilities) within many popular applications you use every day, enabling you to create documents and zip through computer tasks in record time.
Transcribe your recordings from audio files
Dragon Professional Individual supports Nuance-approved digital voice recorders for advanced recording functionality and can automatically transcribe the audio files to text back at your PC. Dragon Professional Individual lets you work the way that you want, to optimize your productivity on the road.
Command and control your computer by voice
If you wish, you can launch applications, select menu items, press keys, switch between windows, search the Web, create and send emails and more all by voice.
Simplify proofreading with natural sounding text-to-speech or audio playback
Dragon’s text-to-speech capability is a natural-sounding synthesized voice that reads designated text to you, thereby simplifying proofreading and supporting new levels of multitasking. With Dragon Professional Individual, you can also listen to audio playback of your own dictation with the associated text highlighted on the screen.
Choose your microphone option for freedom and flexibility
With automatic microphone detection, Dragon will conveniently show you which microphones are available for you to use. Dragon Professional Individual lets you use multiple audio device types within the same profile, so you can easily switch to another microphone while keeping all your personalized preferences for accuracy and formatting. This is useful if, for example, you use a USB mic at home, a wireless mic at work and your laptop’s built-in mic when you’re on the go.
Extend accessibility and prevent repetitive stress injuries
Dragon Professional Individual supports Section 508 standards to eliminate barriers for individual workers with disabilities that limit their ability to use a keyboard and mouse. In addition, it helps prevent fatigue and repetitive stress injuries by offering a comfortable, ergonomic alternative to the keyboard and mouse.
Easy to get started, easy to master
Dragon Professional Individual makes it easy to get started with speech recognition and to become proficient quickly with regular use. It’s also simple to explore more advanced features that can boost your productivity even further.
