Enhance the educational experience
Nuance Dragon® Speech Recognition software transforms the classroom and helps students and teachers express themselves — enabling them to achieve new levels of success, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Dragon enables students, teachers and school administrators to dictate and edit in programs like Microsoft Word®, Excel® and Outlook®, and watch their spoken words appear in documents, email, instant messages and more—three times faster than most people type—with up to 99% accuracy. Students can also surf the web by speaking commands to navigate the browser and select links — all by voice.
Help students realize their full potential
Dragon has gained broad acceptance as a cost-effective accessibility tool for a wide range of students. It not only provides an alternative input method for students with physical disabilities, but has also been shown to help students with learning disabilities make significant advances in the areas of reading, writing and spelling. By eliminating the physical demands of typing and cognitive barriers to written communication, Dragon can help all students better realize their full potential. It lets students express themselves simply by talking. Typing and spelling concerns no longer get in the way and slow them down.
Benefits of Dragon for students and teachers:
Eliminate the barrier of typing:
Dragon provides students an easier way to control a computer that is less physically and cognitively taxing. Simply speak and the words appear on the computer screen transcribing up to 160 words a minute. Or use simple voice commands to conduct research. Simply say "Search Wikipedia for George Washington Carver”.
Turn frustration into accomplishment:
Dragon can read back transcribed text to ensure that the material is truly what the user intended to say. Students can also use Dragon to read aloud other text such as homework instructions or incoming email.
Manage communication more effectively:
Send email and IMs to collaborate on group or classroom project—entirely by voice. Compose and send emails to colleagues, administrators, parents and students.
Quickly and easily prepare lesson plans:
Dictate three times faster than typing—with up to 99% accuracy. Prepare lesson plans, syllabi, reading lists, and worksheets—faster than ever before.
Provide more detailed assessments:
Provide more detailed feedback when assessing student work—from papers through research projects to tests—with unprecedented speed and ease, simply by speaking.
