You do the talking...the Dragon does the rest!

How many times have you been digging around for a pen or paper to write down your most awesome idea? Or scrambling to jot your ideas down to get them out of your head and onto paper or the computer? I love the Dragon Naturally Speaking Software. Some of us are better talkers than writers.

Essentially what Dragon Natually Speaking does is type what you say. That's right, you open a word document (you can even use for email) and talk. The software program types what you say. Now, there will be some edits, however if you do the tutorial,

What are the ways that Dragon Naturally Speaking can help you?

-  prepare your presentations by talking your ideas out loud, Dragon types the notes, and you can refine later
- draft letters while you are sitting in the parking lot between meetings
- write your book!
- create blogs as the ideas come to you
- you can even talk your to do list and then Dragon types it for you.

It is a great way to minimize pain and discomfort for those who have arthritis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
There is also a Dragon App on the iPhone! FREE! Check out the software here, I am a Dragon Naturally Speaking fan!
