START TO DICTATE
TURN ON THE MICROPHONE
Before you can dictate, you need to turn on the microphone by doing one of
the following:
• Pressing the plus (+) key on the numeric keypad and then pressing it again
to turn the microphone off.
• Clicking the microphone icon on the DragonBar.
VERSION 10
The microphone icon is vertical when the microphone is on. You can click
this icon again to turn it off.
• Clicking the microphone icon in the Windows® system tray.
START TO DICTATE
To begin dictating, start a word processor (such as the DragonPad) and begin
a new document. Make sure that your cursor is located within the document and simply start talking in a clear and natural voice, neither yelling or
whispering.
As you talk, text will display in the Results box while Dragon determines
what you said. The Results box is a small yellow window that appears
on-screen as you dictate. For example, if you say “talking to a computer,”
the program will display “talking to a computer” in the Results box and then
write the words “talking to a computer” into your application:
GETTING INFORMATION AND SUPPORT
Dragon includes an online PDF User Guide, extensive online help, and
tutorials. To access the online help, click the Help menu on the DragonBar
and choose Help Topics. Alternately, you can say “Give Me Help.”
