Dragon Naturally Speaking

Dragon Naturally Speaking (PC) is speech-recognition computer software for individuals who have difficulty using a standard keyboard and mouse. Dragon may also facilitate the learning process and improve writing skills for the student with dyslexia and for those who have word-retrieval difficulties, graphomotor challenges, or problems committing ideas to paper in a timely fashion.

  • surf the web
  • compose research papers on MS Word, Dragon Pad, Google docs, and other Google Apps
  • dictate responses to homework questions
  • reply to emails
  • transcribe speeches
  • respond to online discussions threads, quizzes, and surveys in Canvas
