  • Requirements

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Home speech recognition software ignites new levels of creativity and convenience by letting you interact with your PC using your voice. Dragon recognizes what you say and how you say it so you can turn talk into text and enjoy using your voice to command your PC and applications. Say words and they appear on your screen — three times faster than typing. Use your favorite applications to dictate documents, send email, search the Web, or network with friends and family. Speak simple voice commands to launch applications, select menu items, “press” keys, save files, or switch from one window to another. Dragon 12 Home makes working on your PC for home or school easier and more enjoyable than ever before.

IGNITE MORE FUN AT YOUR PC
Dragon 12 Home lets you say words and watch them appear on your computer screen. It’s easy to install and fun to use, making even mundane PC tasks a lot more enjoyable. It changes the way you interact with your PC for the better so you can get through your “to-do” list faster than ever before.

IGNITE CREATIVITY BY CAPTURING YOUR SPOKEN THOUGHTS
Transform your ideas into text at the speed of thought; don’t let typing, spelling or fear of the blank page slow you down. Simply speak and Dragon captures your thoughts so you’ll never lose track of another great idea. Capture your thoughts quickly and completely, without having to keep your eyes fixed on the screen or keyboard. When it’s time to edit and revise your documents, use Dragon’s commands to breeze through the process. Dragon can even adapt its format rules by detecting your format corrections – abbreviations, numbers, and more — so your dictated text looks the way you want it to every time.

IGNITE PRODUCTIVITY BY TURNING TALK INTO TEXT
