About Nuance (Dragon)

Dragon help students who struggle with writing, by letting them express themselves simply by talking. Typing and spelling concerns no longer get in the way and slow them down.

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.

Dragon also offers 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”.
