The top 10 reasons to use Dragon NaturallySpeaking!

This short video shows the top 10 reasons to use Dragon NaturallySpeaking!

Let’s have a look at these points in more detail…

  1. I always want to complete my paperwork as quickly as I can – with Dragon NaturallySpeaking I can type at 120 words a minute, completing a page of A4 in under 4 minutes! I am confident that I can show you how to do this yourself!
  2. I will show you how using Dragon can help you to reduce your costs. According to the Office for National Statistics, the average take home salary was £455 a week or £21,840 a year in November 2014. If you employ people who spend 50% of their time at their PC you can help them reduce this time by a third – saving £7,280 per person per year!!
  3. Completing paperwork this quickly will help to reduce any stress you may feel when trying to meet deadlines, and reduce the hours that you work as a result.
  4. Voice recognition software is now in widespread use on devices like smartphones and TV’s – it makes sense to work smarter!
  5. This will all help you to improve the service that you offer to your customers.
  6. Reducing the use of the keyboard will reduce the risk of problems such as RSI for you or your employees.
  7. You control your email and calendar with your voice.
  8. Create text on your PC even if you are not in the office using a smartphone and free app! (This requires the Professional version).
  9. Create reports, spreadsheets, presentations and more with your voice. Instantly format and delete text.
  10. And finally, it really works! I guarantee this with my training or I will take the software away. I also provide a free copy of Dragon Premium with my training, so there has never been a better time to try this software and see what a difference it will make for you.

GP Speech recognition

This post considers how GP speech recognition might help in busy GP Practices.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking is now so accurate that it is a genuine productivity tool and is being used more and more in the medical world. It even has a distinct medical version with a very specialised vocabulary and it can definitely help GP Practices today – especially those that are struggling to keep up with the demands placed on them.

I am helping to promote and support LOASys (Logical Office Automation System) locally because I have seen it and know that it has the potential to help every GP! Why would any GP or Practice Manager consider using it?

  • to improve efficiency
  • to improve quality of information collected
  • to reduce costs

We can help with this by using advanced practice management systems that are easy to use, and which take advantage of the latest voice recognition software! With this solution, the dictation typist is a computer, and will be available to work 24 hours a day, 365 says a year!

There are no upfront fees for this solution and for orders placed before 31st March 2015, a free microphone is provided!

How to keep improving at work

How to keep improving in a fast-moving, tech-heavy world? Speak up!

This text comes from an article written by Rick Brown – the full version can be found here… http://whatsnext.nuance.com/office-productivity/dragon-naturallyspeaking-13/

In its latest iteration, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 stands tall and proud, emerging as the most accurate, fastest, and all-around best version of Dragon yet. While the central dogma of the use of Dragon remains the same, several new features have been added to make the Dragon experience even more engaging and productive.

For instance, for the first time, users are able to put down their headsets and engage with Dragon via built-in microphone, if so desired. Just think: you can cook dinner and edit your novel, write a report not sitting but standing, fold laundry and email your boss, all with the innate and inherent power of your own voice. Never before has Dragon been so natural, comfortable, or flexible.

In the age of computers, typing, desks and phone calls, we spend hours a day slouching in a desk chair, hunched over a keyboard. Working becomes not only mentally challenging, but physically taxing, as we contort our body into an unnatural hunch that our backs most certainly resent – not to mention our future selves. Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 enables us to break out of the literal work day slump and write emails, draft documents, and search the Web not with fingers moving on a keyboard and back slouching over a computer, but with voice.

Perhaps the most exciting thing about Dragon 13 is the complete experience it can offer you: voice command and control lets you interact with your computer in a comfortable, ergonomic way that enables you to work hands-free or to multitask. No longer bound by desk, chair, or keyboard, you are empowered to work how you want, where you want.

Dragon 13 also now comes with an enhanced, modern and intuitive user interface, mediating the ever-important relationship between human and technology and allowing you and Dragon to “get to know each other” with ease. Dragon 13 also features a new, contemporary user interface, faster profile setup, and significant improvements in web application support. The new Rich Internet Application support (RIA) leverages theW3C ARIA accessibility standard for the web and delivers more robust control of web applications Full Text Control in supported text fields for popular Internet applications like Gmail, Yahoo! Mail and Outlook.com. The new RIA support is compatible with, as well as the latest versions of the Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers.

The relationship between Dragon and user is entirely reciprocal: just as you learn Dragon, Dragon learns you. The Dragon experience is personalized, as it becomes more and more accurate by actually learning the words and phrases that you use the most. Adaptive intelligence is the best kind.

The experience of using Dragon 13 is just as liberating as all other versions of the program, but new improvements make this version the best yet. Dragon is the fastest and most accurate way to interact with your computer, and it dramatically boosts your personal productivity. Running on a boundless expanse of programs and applications, Dragon 13 also gives you more freedom than ever: with Dragon, you can dictate text anywhere you would normally type. And for the first time, built-in mic support makes this dictation possible without the constraint of a headset.

More than just capable of performing these tasks, Dragon is able to perform them exceptionally well. Dragon delivers up to 99% speech recognition accuracy right out of the box, so you can start dictating with near-perfect accuracy the day you purchase it. Our most innovate and exciting Dragon yet, Dragon 13 will revolutionise the way you work and empower you to be your most productive self.

How fast can you type

Most people can only manage to type at about 40 words a minute and as a result find themselves struggling to keep up with an ever growing volume of paperwork. I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking and can type at speeds in excess of 120 words a minute, so I complete my paperwork faster. How fast can you type?!

Talking Typist is working with LOASys (Logical Office Automation Systems) to automate the process of transcribing spoken text using a portable dictation device, or even a mobile phone! This system is absolutely ideal for busy GP Practices, particularly in light of the recent news about increasing workloads and pressure for many GPs.

Using a similar technique would allow you to…

  • complete your paperwork quickly
  • reduce any stress you feel due to deadlines
  • improve the service you are able to provide to your patients
  • meet obligatory deadlines

What if the ‘dictation typist’ was a computer ready to work 24 hours a day, 365 days a year?

You will be able to dictate when working away from your Practice, and send your recording back to your computer server simply by pressing send. Your recording is then interpreted automatically and converted to text so that it is ready for you to check when you return. This can also be completed for you by support staff who can listen to your message (with instructions if necessary), and ensure the text is correct. It is also then loaded automatically into an appropriate document template ready for printing and sending out!

This is such a powerful technique and I’m really pleased to be able to provide training and support for medical practices in Oxfordshire and surrounding counties. I would be very happy to provide a demonstration and answer any questions that you may have. Please contact me by email at neil@talkingtypist.co.uk

How to type faster

The surprising answer to the question of how to type faster is to forget all about using your keyboard!

Many people are calling this the beginning of the age of voice recognition. It is already in widespread use and you can buy voice activated television sets and cars today! With a voice activated television you could ask it to ‘find a John Wayne film from the 1970’s’ and it would search your program list and display the alternatives on the screen!

It is becoming easier and easier to use this technology but it is so powerful on a computer, and training can be very important. There has never been a better time to try this it, and I will offer you an unconditional guarantee that it will work and help make your working life easier.

Imagine being able to send an email or search the web by voice. Better still, I regularly type at speeds above 120 words a minute with my voice – faster than a touch typist! This means that I can complete a 2000 word report in under 20 minutes – on the keyboard it would take me over an hour!

A bonus from working like this is that you will improve the service that you offer your customers by responding much more quickly to them. This is absolutely ideal if you regularly visit customers, take some notes and then prepare a report for them. So for instance, it is worth considering if you are a risk assessor, loss adjuster or surveyor.

It is time to stop typing and start living! Learn how to type faster and stop using your keyboard!

How to increase productivity

This post looks at how to increase productivity for your business…

If you regularly post a blog or create a newsletter, if you regularly create written proposals for your clients, and if you regularly feel that you cannot keep up with this work, then I have the experience to help your business and make this easier for you. An added benefit for you is that you can improve the service you are able to provide for your customers!

Over the last 20 years I have been helping many people in many different organisations who have exactly this type of problem. I have visited larger organisations such as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and many smaller local businesses.

I am extremely lucky because I am able to visit many interesting work locations, but also because I really enjoy my work. It is very pleasing to be able to help someone with this type of problem, especially if it enables them to complete work that they were unable to do before.

The way that we are all using computers is changing rapidly, perhaps even more so today, and I genuinely believe that there has never been a better or more exciting time to stop typing, start living!!

Additionally, I am going to be making donations to my favourite charities with every half day of training that I provide – both of these charities are very close to our hearts as a family.

Please take a look at Yellow Submarine in Oxford – a great charity that supports young people with a disability, and it’s a great cafe if ever you find yourself in Oxford!

Also, I am supporting the Myotonic Dystrophy Appeal for research into this condition.

And last but not least, I have introduced a monthly payment plan to help you spread the cost of any training that I provide. This will include some lovely additional features and support for you – not that I would ever let you down. It is in my interest to ensure that you get the most help possible!

It really does pay when you know how to increase productivity for your business!
