DRGN1001 - Prepare your Dragon for dictation
Dragon allows you to speak naturally to dictate and edit your written assignments. Speaking to 'your computer' may feel strange at first, but the Dragon workshops aim to show you how to “type by voice” efficiently.
Dragon is a toolbar that can help students with dyslexia and other learning difficulties with writing and proofreading tasks. In this workshop, we will look at how to prepare your Dragon for dictation.
We will look at how to:
- create your User Profile and how to add different audio sources from which you will be dictating or transcribing (microphones, imported recordings etc.)
- personalize the Vocabulary with custom words and phrases, pronunciations, capitalization properties to make sure Dragon transcribes words that can be written in different ways.
