Whether you’re on the move or in the office, the use of your voice can help you quickly get through your paperwork.

Technology such as speech recognition software helps you to prepare reports, correspondence, proposals, quotes and all manner of documents quickly and easily – through dictation.

We speak three times as fast as we type, so speech recognition solutions such as Nuance Dragon Professional Individual for the PC help you save time and can significantly boost your productivity.

Create documents quickly

Dragon quickly and accurately turns your spoken words into text. It lets you put your voice to work to easily dictate and edit all sorts of documents and correspondence. With Dragon you spend less time producing documents, and more time on activities that boost the bottom line.

Dragon also works with all Microsoft Office applications, you can create spreadsheets and presentations by simply using your voice.

The solution also lets you speak to send emails, and as it’s compatible with popular web browsers, you can also deploy Dragon to search the web and use social media with unparalleled speed, ease and comfort.

Edit documents with ease

Editing documents with a speech recognition solution is also easy so that you can turnaround your documents fast. Whether you wish to delete a line, select type, or apply formatting such as bold, underline, or capitalisation, most solutions let you do this with great accuracy and speed.

If your business or industry uses specific jargon, that’s no problem at all. Speech recognition solutions such as Dragon let you add customised words for accurate recognition of your industry’s terms and acronyms.

Work hands-free

Busy professionals are also likely to be impressed with the hands-free capability of the more sophisticated speech recognition solutions. It lets you do two things at once and gives you the freedom to move around while you continue working.

The flexibility to work hands-free also means that you can work comfortably and more ergonomically. And because you’re using your voice to get things done on your computer, Dragon helps to reduce the physical strain and stress of typing.

Working while on the go

Some of the smarter speech recognition solutions also let you keep on top of your paperwork while you’re on the move. Use the Dragon Anywhere App on your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet to dictate and edit documents while you’re travelling, working remotely or out visiting clients. When you’re back in the office you can simply pick up where you left off because Dragon Anywhere synchronises seamlessly with the desktop version.

Finding your voice

Speech recognition solutions reward the user by helping you gain precious time. Work that may have taken hours – typing numerous documents or clearing your inbox – can now be achieved faster by simply using your voice, and the time saved can be allocated to increasing productivity, driving growth and boosting revenue.
