Not sure what it means? Well stay tuned ...

With all the constant change in the field of dictation technology, we thought it would be useful to explain a few buzzwords from speech recognition and digital dictation and then give actual definitions. Here's a couple terms that have been renamed with Dragon 11:

STT - Speech to Toys (not to be confused with Speech to Noise):
Calibration performed on the microphone and sound system prior to voicing in your Santa wish list.

HMM - Holiday Markov Models (not to be confused with Hidden Markov Models):
Algorithms for deriving statistics and vectors to decode who should be voiced into the Naughty list and who should be voiced into the Nice list.

VAR - Voice-Activated Reindeer:
Reindeer that fly off when the "Dash Away All" command is given.

MXFZ - Merry Christmas from Zephyr-TEC
From everyone at Zephyr-TEC… our wish for a Happy Holiday season to you!


Tech Tools & Tips
Make Dragon Write Things the Way You Want Them Written

If Dragon misrecognizes something it may be that the item is not in Dragon's Vocabulary. You can use the command: add word to quickly add a word, phrase or acronym without having to open Vocabulary Editor.

Say: add word

You can spell or type the word or phrase you wish to add to the vocabulary. In the: Spell or type the word(s) to add to the vocabulary field, enter the word exactly as you wish it to appear in your documents.

The: Spoken form field allows you to enter a spoken form of the word if it is different from the written form. If there is no spoken form, leave this field blank.

In the example below with a different spoken form, Dragon will hear the regular words "zephyr" and "tech" but it will write the hyphenated company name "Zephyr-TEC."

Choose: Add and train the word(s).
