Review:

The latest voice-recognition software boasts accuracy of 96 percent or better, corresponding to just a handful of errors in the average business e-mail message. Dragon NaturallySpeaking consistently comes out at or near the top of the rankings of such software. The Dragon NaturallySpeaking Guide documents the popular productivity aid fully, taking the reader from initial setup and training through fairly advanced vocabulary-expansion procedures and macro-building.

Author Dan Newman recognizes that Dragon NaturallySpeaking represents a whole new breed of program for many people, and takes time to explain the details of its efficient use. Along the way, you get a comprehensive look at NaturallySpeaking's user interface, so you can look up any detail whose function baffles you.

This book takes special care to highlight differences among the Standard, Professional, Medical, and Legal variants of Dragon NaturallySpeaking, making it a good choice if you're thinking about deploying the software but unsure about which version to buy. Coverage of the program's shortcut facilities are great too, including coverage of shorthands (which are short passages of text inserted with a single command) and macros (which can insert long passages of text and include variables, making it easy to generate form letters). Though Dragon NaturallySpeaking is far from perfect and most experts agree that it will have to improve its accuracy to gain wide acceptance, this book is a very good snapshot of the program as it exists today. --David Wall

Topics covered: Choosing a version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking, training for maximum recognition, issuing voice commands, integrating with Microsoft Word and other programs, creating shorthands and macros, and using Dragon's handheld voice recorder.
