Or create time-saving macros to automate multi-step workflows by voice. Once created, share these customizations across the Dragon user community for efficiency gains.         Reduce the symptoms of RSIs or proactively prevent further injuries.

Since documents are created in a fraction of the time it would typically take typing by hand, they spend less time on paperwork, and more time on more profitable tasks.

        The Problem          The Solution        
        Many organizations face increasing documentation demands, but inefficient or cumbersome processes can put accuracy, deadlines, and employee productivity at risk. The result: non-compliance penalties, reliance on costly transcription services, and long hours spent on administrative work rather than core business initiatives.         With Dragon Professional Group speech recognition, empower your staff with a faster and more accurate way to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, or fill out form-based reports—in the office or on the road, all by voice. Use robust transcription tools to eliminate reliance on outsourced services, or create and share powerful voice commands to shortcut repetitive, manual processes for additional productivity gains.
