Edit and format documents — all by voice
Dragon not only lets you dictate up to three times faster than typing, but it also allows you to make edits and apply formatting using your voice. You can select text and apply formatting such as bold, underline, capitals and more, or just speak to make needed changes. Smart Format Rules automatically adapt to how you want abbreviations, numbers and more to appear, so you don’t have to correct them every time.
- Make edits and format text quickly—faster than using your mouse and keyboard
- Automatically format text to appear the way you want it to—every time
- Easily switch between keyboard, mouse and voice so you can use the mode of input you prefer for any given task
Import/export custom word lists and vocabulary
- Dragon Legal Individual easily learns acronyms, proper names and other unique or legal-specific phrases that you frequently use for capturing words the way you want. The ability to customize your vocabulary increases recognition accuracy and minimizes the need for corrections. In addition, you can import and export your custom word lists.
Create custom voice commands for inserting frequently used text and graphics
- With Dragon Legal Individual, it’s easy to create custom voice commands for quickly inserting frequently-used text and graphics. This feature lets you insert a standard reply, a signature block, a logo or other boilerplates by speaking a simple command for significant time savings.
Automate business processes with time-saving macros
- Create macros to automate simple workflows or multi-step business processes via simple voice commands. For example, send an email to all your clients, copy your colleagues, and print a hard copy for your files by saying something like “Send standard notification email.”
Sync with separate Dragon Anywhere mobile app
- Dragon Anywhere is a separate, cloud-based app that provides continuous dictation capabilities, letting you create and edit documents of any length by voice—using your own customized words, shortcuts and commands—directly on your iOS or Android mobile device. It adapts to your voice and terminology so you can dictate, edit, navigate and format quickly and accurately within your document from anywhere. Share documents and sync custom words and texts with Dragon Legal Individual for seamless productivity wherever your job takes you. Gain immediate access to your dictation without having to wait or rely on a costly transcription service so you can spend more time contributing to your bottom line and less time behind a desk completing administrative tasks.
Enjoy superior voice command and control in many popular applications
- Dragon gives you robust voice command and control as well as Full Text Control (full voice-driven editing and command capabilities) within many popular applications you use every day, enabling you to create documents and zip through computer tasks in record time.
Transcribe your recordings from audio files
- Dragon Legal Individual supports Nuance-approved digital voice recorders for advanced recording functionality and can automatically transcribe the audio files to text back at your computer. You may prefer to take notes by recording your voice into an audio device for later transcription, or you can work with the Dragon Anywhere mobile app for immediate, professional-grade dictation. Dragon Legal Individual lets you work the way you want to optimize your productivity on the road.
For added flexibility, you can accurately transcribe another single speaker’s voice from pre-recorded audio ﬁles or from podcasts. To transcribe an audio file, Dragon checks if your profile needs a transcription source created and will lead you through a training process. If your audio recording is of a different speaker, you must create a new profile. All that’s needed for training is a 90-second audio clip of that speaker; he or she doesn’t need to be present to read a passage.
Command and control your computer by voice
- Launch applications, select menu items, press keys, switch between windows, search the Web, create and send emails and more all by voice, if you wish. Dragon Legal Individual gives you the flexibility to:
Work hands-free, if desired
- Experience more ergonomic comfort when working on your computer
Feel less stress and strain on your body
Multitask by using your voice to dictate and execute commands
Simplify proofreading with natural-sounding text-to-speech or audio playback
- Dragon’s text-to-speech capability is a natural-sounding synthesized voice that reads designated text to you, thereby simplifying proofreading and supporting new levels of multi-tasking. With Dragon Legal Individual, you can also listen to audio playback of your own dictation with the associated text highlighted on the screen.
Choose your microphone option for freedom and flexibility
- With automatic microphone detection, Dragon will conveniently show you which microphones are available for you to use. Dragon Legal Individual allows you to use multiple audio device types within the same profile so you can easily switch to another microphone while keeping all your personalized preferences for accuracy and formatting. This is useful if, for example, you use a USB mic at home, a wireless mic at work and your laptop’s built-in mic when you’re on the go. You have the option to use:
- Microphones built into many of the latest laptops: You’re free to dictate documents and speak commands directly into your laptop without using a headset for optimal flexibility and convenience
- Wireless Bluetooth mic: Use a Nuance-certified Bluetooth headset microphone for outstanding wireless performance and the freedom to move while working on your computer
- Any other Nuance-approved microphone: See support.nuance.com/compatibility for more information.
Extend accessibility and prevent repetitive stress injuries
- Dragon Legal Individual supports Section 508 standards to eliminate barriers for individual workers with disabilities that limit their ability to use a keyboard and mouse. In addition, it helps prevent fatigue and repetitive stress injuries by offering a comfortable, ergonomic alternative to he keyboard and mouse.
