TECH TIPS & TOOLS: How to Dictate Numbers with Dragon Speech Recognition

With Dragon speech recognition, you can use your voice to quickly enter numbers, fractions, dollar amounts, telephone numbers, times, and Roman numerals. To type a single digit, by default, you must precede the number with the word "numeral." To enter the number 7, say: numeral 7. However, to enter a two-digit number, you need only speak the number. To enter the number 21, say: twenty-one.

Dragon offers two methods of entering numbers: formatted and unformatted. Using the formatted method, hyphens, dollar signs, and other symbols are automatically inserted. Dragon formats seven-digit and ten-digit telephone numbers, fractions, times, and dollar amounts.

You can change between formatted and unformatted numbers and adjust several other formatting rules in Dragon’s Auto-Formatting dialog box.
