Hi all,

To use dragon naturally speaking effectively with jaws for Windows, you need
middleware called J-say. J-say is bridging technology which will allow jaws
for Windows to be controlled with dragon naturally speaking. As regards the
microphone that comes with the programme, it works for a start. However, it
is preferable to purchase a special noise cancelling microphone. I will be
discussing this during the demonstration.

Also, you need the professional version of dragon naturally speaking. The
key advantage of this version is that it allows you to create macros. So,
let us say that you have a document template. Using a simple voice command,
you can generate that template and have it ready to go.

On my home computer, I have automated most things and, I can work completely
hands-free if I  choose to do so.

Hello all

I arranged a demo of Dragon naturally speaking, a voice recognition software
at my office.
I was very much impressed with the results of it.

To tell something about it, This software, sort of replaces the use of the
keyboard. You can do all  functioning of the computer, navigating, editing,
working on spreadsheet etc. 

Actually, I was looking it as an accessability tool by which we can give
rest to our hands and save us from RSI related problems, regarding which we
discussed on the list a few days back.
However, I discovered it could be very effectively used as a productivity
tool. One can dictate at very high speeds, much more than what a person can

The accuracy rate is also very good. Without any training it recognised my
dictation to almost 95%.

One can do all document formatting including making tables with voice. One
can also use it with Excell very well.

The commands used too are very intutive and it would take just a few minutes
to do most of the operation.

I checked on the price which is Rs.14,999. I enquired if he could give us
for a special price. He readily agreed to give us a 30% discount. He would
give furthur discount depending on volume.

The package includes a special noise cancelling microphone which itself
costs arround Rs. 1,500 upwards. 1 license permitts you to make 2
installations like, a decktop and laptop.

This can be ideal for students, teachers, reporters, translators,
transcriptionists, lawyers etc. It will also be a good tool for those who do
a lot of correspondence.

For a brief demo, you can download this file:

It contains the dictation voice file and the dragon recognised text file 

This sunday noon you can also participate in a demo on Skype by our member
who is using it extensively.
