Powered By Dragon
Dragon Dictate’s remarkable accuracy is powered by the latest version of the Dragon speech recognition engine. This is the same state-of-the-art technology used by Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 for the PC.
New commands are easy to say, easy to remember, and designed to simplify and speed up editing by voice. These commands include: “Select text“, “Delete text“, “Train text“, “Correct text“, “Insert Before/After text“, “Capitalize text“ , “Lowercase text“ and “Uppercase text".
The new Proofreading commands in Dragon Dictate 2.0 take advantage of the powerful Text-to-Speech capabilities built into Mac OS X. Use these commands to have dictated text read back to you: “Read/Proofreadtext”, “Read/Proofread The Selection” and “Read/Proofread Document”.
These commands allow you to put punctuation around certain words or words, using a single command. For example, “Put Quotes Around text”.
Dragon Voice Shortcuts for Search
Dragon Dictate's voice shortcuts offer an easy way to search the web for information, or search your Mac for content. Speak a dynamic command, such as "Search Google for 'Italian restaurants'", or "Search Mac for 'history term paper'", and Dragon Dictate helps you find what you're looking for.
Switching between microphones is easier to manage with Dragon Dictate 2.0. A new “Audio Sources” setting lets you specify which microphones to use with a given Profile. You can even designate multiple microphones for a single Profile -- for example, if you use both a wired headset microphone and a wireless microphone.
Placement of the cursor can be accomplished with MouseGrid commands. Using numbered 3x3 grid sections onscreen, you can narrow down the placement of the mouse pointer, and then use a Mouse Click command. MouseGrid commands include: “MouseGrid”, “Small MouseGrid” (directly around mouse pointer),“1” through “9” to narrow down placement, and “Close MouseGrid” or “Cancel”.
To click the mouse, you simply speak a command such as "Mouse Click", "Mouse Double/Triple Click", "Press/Hold Mouse" or "Release Mouse". Optional "modifiers" designate one or more keys such as Command, Option, Shift or Caps Lock.
Move the mouse pointer, just by using your voice. You designate the direction (left, right, up, down, or any combination), and optionally the distance (points, centimeters or inches). New commands include: “Move Mouse direction distance (1-100 points/centimeters/inches“ and “Stop, or Slower, or Faster“.
