Dragon Naturally Speaking software

Dragon Naturally Speaking software is a speech recognition software allowing you the convenience of interacting with your computer just by talking. Because Dragon recognises what you say and how you say it, you can speak words and they appear on the screen – considerably faster than typing – with no spelling mistakes. Use your favourite applications to dictate or edit documents, send email, search the Web, network with friends and family and more. You can buy Dragon from the University computer store.  Prices in March 2012 were

1 x Dragon Dictate for Mac – £124 ex vat & carriage

1 x Naturally Speaking premium for PC – £79.25 ex Vat & carriage

1 x Naturally speaking Pro for PC – £237.62 ex vat & carriage

These may well have increased as version 12 has just been released

If you wish to buy a personal copy the best bets are :

If you want that software installed on your work machine, the Service Desk can arrange for automatic ‘squirting’ to your machine once you have purchased a licence

I have been working in the Educational Technology field within Higher Education for eleven years. A big part of my job is finding new and innovative ways of integrating technology into current teaching and learning methodology. This can include assisting academic staff with Virtual Learning Environments/Learning Management Systems (Blackboard), implementing specific software packages, maximising current technologies and championing new ones. I find this profession both riveting and rewarding. I really enjoy life on the cutting edge, but I also enjoy being able to help staff achieve small and meaningful efficiencies; sometimes that makes all the difference.
