dragon naturally speaking and nvda


 

Hi.
Hmmm, that would be nice, but I am not sure I can justify the extra
400 bucks for command creation though that would be nice.
I have contacted the local dragon training specialists here that are
the ones my blind organisation uses so I will see what they say
exactly what I should go for.

Hi Shaun,

In terms of recognition accuracy, there is no difference between home and
pro. The difference lies in being able to create your own commands. You can
crate your own commands in pro.

Hmmm so for using dragon dictation should I use pro?

Can I use home or is it better with pro.

I was not planning to use pro as such.

I have used windows 10 speech recognition and I can open programs with it.

Is there a list of commands for that.

Hi Shaun,

You can use dragon with nvda without any other software.

You did have the dictationBridge add-on which allowed you to control nvda
by your voice but you would need dragon professional for that and as of
this writing, the add-on is out dated. The project is seeking developers
who can help. Full disclosure, I am a part of the project team.
The thing when working with speech-recognition is that many people like to
hear the text that dragon has recognized. This is possible with
dictationBridge but there are other solutions that can do this. Other
people find hearing text distracting. That is up to you.
You will have to change 2 options for NVDA to work optimally, namely, get
the dragon bar which is a kind of control center for dragon to doc to the
system tray and enable MSAA for dragon menus from within the miscellaneous
settings.

Why not try the windows 11 speech-recognition first and then move to
dragon? When using speech-recognition, you also must get a good quality
microphone and sound card.

Get a USB sound card so that it is not subjected to internal machine
noise. Internal machine noise may interfere with the accuracy of
speech-recognition.

Hi all.

Was thinking of chucking this on chat but then I thought I'd ask this part first.

Firstly what is nvda like with the latest dragon naturally speaking?

I have been thinking of using it, for well a home user.

So I won't be spending the 800 bucks on the pro version which is probably to much for what I need since I am not doing any actual documents for a business setting.

The home addition is 350 nz or there abouts.

However what is accessibility like with nvda.

Do I need anything extra software wize.

I have all the extras I do need, including a headset mic.

Can I train and use this myself?
