Turn frustration into accomplishment

Take the struggle out of writing

You know you’re smart. But with Dyslexia, you face challenges others don’t – writing, spelling and typing can be frustrating and difficult. Dragon speech recognition changes all that. It turns thoughts into written words, simply by speaking.

Express yourself

Imagine how much easier writing could be if you eliminate the struggle of getting what’s in your head onto paper? Communicate your thoughts in writing just as easily and efficiently as you would by talking to a friend or teacher.

Eliminate the barrier of typing

Completing homework assignments or writing papers can be extremely frustrating for individuals with Dyslexia. There’s a better way. With Dragon, typing and spelling concerns no longer get in the way and slow you down. Simply speak words and they appear on the screen.

Work faster and smarter

Dragon makes writing papers easier and faster – it allows dictation up to 160 words per minute, and even does the spelling for you.

End the pain of typing once and for all

Give your wrists a rest

Repetitive stress issues like carpal tunnel & other physical challenges like arthritis and other mobility issues make the things other people take for granted impossible for you.

Like typing up a report or completing a spreadsheet or sending an email. That takes a more permanent solution than a wrist brace. What you need to do is quit typing and start talking.

Use your computer, pain-free

Dragon turns your voice into text, transcribing up to 160 words a minute. Just speak and the words appear on the computer screen, instantly. So you can do what you need to without touching your keyboard or mouse.

Let Dragon transform your life.

Life-changing. That’s how parents of students and adults suffering from learning-related disabilities describe Dragon speech recognition. See why you never have to type again.
