Arm yourself with Dragon NaturallySpeaking and use the power of your voice

Dragons are mythical, magical creatures. Dragon NaturallySpeaking, however, is truly magical but totally real! Here's how to tame the dragon and put it to work for you. Train NaturallySpeaking to recognize your voice so you can create Word documents and spreadsheets, control your desktop, browse the web, send e-mails, and more, just by speaking.

  • Dragon training 101 — install NaturallySpeaking, create a user profile, and "teach" it to recognize your voice, vocabulary, and writing style

  • Hang out at the DragonBar — it offers easy access to tools and settings, while the DragonPad streamlines word processing

  • Dictate to your desktop — and run various Windows® applications with your voice

  • It reads your mail — compose, send, and receive e-mail, and manage messages on your mobile devices

  • Wander the web — use special web shortcuts and give orders to Internet Explorer

  • That social stuff — tell the software what to post on Facebook or Twitter

  • It's a family thing — learn to set up NaturallySpeaking to accommodate different users
