What advantages does Dragon bring to you?
- It’s three times faster than typing - Most people speak over 120 words per minute, but the average keyboard user types less than 40 words a minute. By delivering the ability to create documents and emails about three times faster than typing, Dragon helps special education students keep up with their non-disabled peers – even in a mainstream educational setting.
- It’s up to 99% accurate - Dragon learns to recognise the student’s voice with minimal training and delivers increasingly accurate recognition results the more it’s used. Plus, it never makes a spelling mistake—a real advantage for students with certain learning disabilities. Dragon can easily learn new terms, which can be added individually or quickly imported from existing text.
- It’s a proven tool for improving core reading and writing reading skills - Speech recognition can serve a remedial function for improving core reading and writing abilities for students of all abilities. Researchers attribute these benefits to the heightened, strategic engagement with print and language that users experience while dictating and correcting errors.
- It’s the interface of the future - Computing industry pundits like Bill Gates have said that future technology will increasingly leverage speech and touch interfaces. Learning to use products like Dragon will better prepare students to take full advantage of emerging technology—in the classroom, at home and in the workplace.
