Not really what I was hoping for. What I really need is a "dummies guide to Dragon", or similar, to help me use the Command part of it more than I do now, and to be able to make the most of the formatting tools of MS Word without having to forever reach for my mouse.
If you are looking for a book that will go into the minutiae of using Dragon with every command aspect of Windows, MS Office and more, this is not the book for you.
If you are looking at getting the optimum performance out of Dragon for "writing" large volumes of text, then this book may help you achieve that.
This is the first review I've ever written on Amazon but even at £8, I felt ripped off when this small slim book arrived. The author provides very basic technical information which I already knew from surfing a few articles on the Internet (tip: join FB Dragon Riders - Authors Dictating and you can pick up plenty of free tips there). Little practical information/tips are provided on the process of transitioning from typing to dictating (main tip given: practice and get used to it) which was partly what I was looking for. I was also looking for more information on using commands. Like another reviewer said (and thanks for the tip) it's better to go to the Help menu and print out the notes that list the commands one should use when using the Dragon program. Save your money - don't buy this book. Very disappointing.
I've been toying with switching to dictation for some time now. Lots of my writing friends are almost evangelical about how making the switch has revolutionised their productivity, but then I'm a fast typist and I've developed my way of working over years, so why should I change? This book by Scott Baker could be the thing that finally convinces me. It sets out the issues clearly, explains the pros and cons, and clearly comes down on the positive side: dictation might not be the only way, but it's a very helpful approach - particularly when things aren't flowing - and is a useful tool for the writer. It could even become the main tool I use, as I become more used to it. Most usefully of all, this book gives very clear guidance and advice on making the switch to speech recognition - if you've ever considered trying it then this is the perfect guide. If this book had been around a year or two ago it would have saved me a lot of prevarication!
I have used dictation in the past but need to develop an ongoing habit of doing so. This book covers the use of Nuance’s Dictation software on Windows and Apple machine in great detail. It is pragmatic guide to using dictation to encourage mainly authors to increase their output dramatically. There are other Dictation softwares out there but the do not compare favorably with Nuance’s offering. The emphasis is on the adoption and use of the tool ...almost error free dictation to drive the creators word count and thereby improve their productivity. Well worth reading.
Excellent book. Having read the invaluable contents and purchased a decent microphone I could almost write a new edition Purchase of this book gives access to instructional video which reiterates book contents. The advice about mic's was really useful. Dragon Mic worked but a decent mic makes such a difference. The method to transcribe items also excellent. The auto upload and quick transcribe when back in the office or home a real boom.
Plenty of hints and tips that prove invaluable. I could have done with a few more pictures/diagrams to illustrate the points being made. It is short enough but with loads of helpful information to improve the functionality of Dragon.
Brilliant book-I had completely failed to get Dragon Professional 15 to work. Using the advice in this book it now works brilliantly. This now means that I can dictate rather than type. I would not have been able to do this without finding this book. I cannot recomend it highly enough
I enjoyed this book and it has made me want to start using Dragon dictate. Well written and easy to follow. Great skill to have for both fiction writers and for info workes that have many many emails and piles of documents to complete in the office.
This book has made a huge difference to me. I have taken the advice given and bought a Blue Ice Snowball Microphone and set up a new profile. What a difference it has made to my accuracy. I use Dragon due to a disability so it is essential to me. The advice in the book has been invaluable. Thank You Scott
