Some people feel pain when typing, have limited mobility, type slowly or can not type at all. Others suffer from conditions like dyslexia that stop them from being the best they can. Many of these can be aided with voice-to-text programs like Dragon NaturallySpeaking.

What is Dragon Naturally Speaking?

It is a highly developed program that converts your voice into text and helps you control your computer with your voice. Use it to control your mouse, your keyboard or applications on your computer.

You can dictate emails, blogs or other notes or make it access computer programs and then get those programs to perform specific functions. For example you could ask it to open your email program, address the email to specific people and then write the subject and message body. You can also search your computer for a file, open, edit and close it all using just your voice.

For those that have trouble reading it can read out any digital text aloud and it will also read your spoken text back to you so you can make corrections or just check that it all makes sense.
