Dragon Naturally Speaking Video 3 – Opening Applications

Published: | No Comments

Reading Time: < 1 minuteThis is the third video in my series showing the basic operation of Dragon NaturallySpeaking.


Dragon Naturally Speaking is voice recognition software, and is used by many people with motor impairments who have difficulty using a mouse and/or keyboard to operate their computers and laptop.

In this video I look briefly at the commands associated with opening software applications and manipulating the application windows.

Hi, this is Graham Armfield from Coolfields Consulting, and in this video I’m going to show you how to open application windows and switch between them with Dragon NaturallySpeaking.

To demonstrate how I can use programs and applications, I’m now going to tell Dragon to open Microsoft Word, Internet Explorer and then manipulate the Windows.

Wake up. Open Microsoft Word Open Internet Explorer. Minimise window. Switch to Internet Explorer. Switch to Microsoft Word.

Go to sleep
