Dragon speech recognition software available

22 October 2020

One of our lovely members is offering Dragon Speech Recognition Software.

‘Following a computer upgrade we have a fully licensed copy of Dragon Naturally Speaking Home version 13 with an unused microphone headset which we would like to pass on to anyone who feels they could make use of it. It integrates well with Microsoft Word (earliest version 10) and Outlook for dictating text. It also works with other email packages such as Thunderbird.

The software is on a CD, so the user will need a Windows PC with a DVD drive to install it. It will run on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. It needs 2MB of RAM for 32-bit Windows and 4 MB for 64-bit Windows and 4GB free space on the hard drive to install it. The headset has an audio jack to plug into the microphone socket on your computer.

With training and patience it can be used for filling in forms and opening and closing programs and documents as well as dictating emails and letters. There are extensive lists of commands online that show the full range of use.’
