Why Dragon Naturally Speaking

  1. 1. Or How I got back 12 hours a month and learned to love the computer again
  2. 2. • • • • I have to create one 9 page report a month I give advice via email once or twice a day I answer lots of various emails every day I have learned to not love my computer anymore
  3. 3. • Dragon took me 15 hours to get good at it. • It was faster than typing after 1 hour. • You still have to insert punctuation and still speak punctuation in. You get over that quickly. • I would never use it for anything but emails and reports.
  4. 4. • My 9 page report is now 12 pages and I complete it in 40% of the time. • I only use Dragon on emails longer than a page to reply but what a time saver when I do. • It frees up my mind to think more as I type. This is the biggest benefit so far. • I really do save 12 hours a month of typing every month, sometimes more.
  5. 5. • You really do save time from the start. • You easily save 40% on anything longer than a page of text and the longer it is, the more you will save. • I really do have 12 hours a month of time I did not used to have. • NOTHING I have ever added as an app, tool, upgrade or whatever made as big an impact
