Since Dragon is a speaker-dependent speech recognition system, you should only record your own voice for use with the Dragon Recorder App.

Transcribing Interviews

Journalists, freelance writers, researchers and other staff that need to capture interview details in writing frequently look for an automated solution to transcribe their interviews. It can take hours to transcribe the text resulting from a brief phone interview, especially when an exact transcript is required.

Given its amazing recognition accuracy, many assume that Dragon speech recognition would be an ideal candidate for this task. The fact is that Dragon software was not designed to transcribe multiple voices. However, thousands of Dragon customers have successfully used the software to transcribe interviews using a basic technique called "voice writing" or "parroting." The key is how the interview content is delivered to Dragon.

Many people don’t realize that Dragon software is "speaker dependent" speech recognition. This means the software is designed to accurately transcribe the voice of a single speaker. When drafting an article or report, a user simply speaks out loud the text that he or she wants to appear on the screen. A user can complete articles and reports – either by dictating directly to the computer or by transcribing an electronic audio file of his/her voice from a digital recorder -- in a fraction of the time consumed by manual typing.

This changes when more than one speaker is introduced. Passing an audio file of an interview of two or more people directly to Dragon will not yield acceptable accuracy since the writer’s copy of Dragon is trained to recognize his/her own voice, not the voice of the person being interviewed. The “voice writing” approach delivers content to Dragon using only the voice of the trained speaker.

Simply record the interview that you plan to transcribe and download the electronic recording to your PC or Mac. Listen to the recording of the interview through the headphones of your Dragon headset. Activate your Dragon microphone and repeat the recorded text as you hear it. Speaking the text aloud in your own voice enables Dragon to accurately transcribe the audio using the Dragon profile tuned to your voice. Dragon turns your voice into text as quickly as you can speak the words – so there’s no need to constantly rewind the audio while you try to type out the corresponding text.

After recording an interview or meeting, writers often need to convert the audio file into a written transcript. Typing out the text of a 30-40 minute interview can often take 1-2 hours or more. The cost of outsourcing interviews can add up quickly. Instead, Dragon users can “re-speak” the audio from an interview for Dragon to transcribe. Since Dragon hears the text in only one speaker’s voice, it can be used to quickly transcribe the entire content of multi-party interviews or meetings.  



Transcribing Lectures
Capture Classroom Content Quickly and Easily with Speech Recognition
Transcribing Lectures

Capture Classroom Content Quickly and Easily with Speech RecognitionStudents, eager to capture the key concepts of a class lecture, often miss key points or important details because their pen and paper can’t keep notes as quickly as the teacher is speaking. Often the cryptic notes taken in class hold no meaning when they are reviewed days later. The note-taking challenge becomes even greater for students with certain physical and/or learning disabilities. Though it’s not specifically designed to automatically transcribe any lecture by any teacher, Dragon speech recognition can be used as a transcription solution by students and teachers that need to capture lecture content in writing.

Dragon software is "speaker dependent" speech recognition, which means it's designed to accurately transcribe the voice of a single speaker. If a school or university equips each instructor with a copy of Dragon that is running on a PC or Mac while the instructor lectures to the class, Dragon can transcribe his/her spoken words on the spot. Since Dragon is trained to accurately recognize that individual’s voice, the instructor can have an immediate transcript of his/her lecture to share with all students – making Dragon an ideal accessibility solution for many schools and universities.

Challenges arise, however, when it is a student within the class that wishes to transcribe the lecture. That student’s copy of Dragon is trained to recognize the student’s voice, not the professor’s. Dragon will not automatically transcribe a live or recorded lecture delivered if the speaker is not using his/her own copy of Dragon.

Dragon Recorder Application

The best and brightest ideas are often lost when they’re not quickly captured in writing. For this reason, thousands of Dragon customers use digital voice recorders to capture their voice when they’re on the go – everything from a quick note to a complete novel. Then they transcribe the resulting audio file into text using Dragon speech recognition on their Mac or PC (Premium edition or higher).

In a 2011 survey, nearly 60% of Dragon customers expressed interest in taking advantage of this amazing productivity feature if they could use a device they already own, such as a mobile phone. The free Dragon Recorder app allows Dragon customers to dictate text anytime, anywhere, capturing high-quality audio files using their existing iPhone, iPad or iPod touch (4th gen).


Users can play back, fast forward and rewind the recording as necessary. The Dragon Recorder app then wirelessly transfers the audio files from the mobile device to the user’s PC or Mac and delivers an accurate written transcript of the entire recording. While the Dragon Recorder app introduces more customers to the freedom and flexibility of remote dictation, customers requiring advanced recording functionality can continue to rely on Dragon’s ability to transcribe the audio files of the industry’s leading digital voice recorders.




Even though Dragon software was not designed to transcribe multiple voices, thousands of Dragon customers have successfully used the software to transcribe lectures using a basic technique called "voice writing" or "parroting." Simply record the lecture that you plan to transcribe and download the electronic recording to your PC or Mac. Listen to the recording of the lecture through the headphones of your Dragon headset. Activate your Dragon microphone and repeat the recorded text in your own voice as you hear it played back. Speaking the text aloud in your own voice enables Dragon to accurately transcribe the audio using the Dragon profile tuned to your voice. Dragon turns your voice into text as quickly as you can speak the words – so there’s no need to constantly rewind the audio while you try to type out the corresponding text.

"The pace of writing would not be remotely conceivable to me without Dragon" Joe R.
Dragon offers many simple and powerful vocabulary tools to allow you to make your dictations faster and more convenient. The Help contains much information about personalizing the Vocabulary.

Customizing the vocabulary. 
How often do you use a phrase or name that may seem commonplace to you, but a person who hears it for the first time may not be able to spell it: that name is not yet part of this person’s vocabulary. Similarly, if a word or phrase is not in Dragon’s active vocabulary, the software cannot transcribe it correctly without a little instruction. This month our focus is on customizing Dragon’s vocabulary to speed dictation and improve overall recognition so you can work faster and smarter.
