Reasons I Use Dragon

Last Update: November 26, 2016

Reasons I use Dragon:

  • Cuts down on muscle cramps in the hands. I only use it for writing. That's it!
  • Helps with speaking correctly.
  • Helps with the *ahem* lack of communication between the brain and the mouth.
  • Helps with brain stalls. You know what they are. Those moments when you can't find the word, the mind goes blank. Quits! *blank stare*
  • I don't have to look at the computer the whole time. My poor eyes!
  • It's fun!
  • And, the pup likes to get in my way when I am on the computer. See below. Fun times!

I had to read this multiple times before I understood what Dragon meant, I understood you used the herb tarragon, that's the translation of dragon in Dutch

Sorry about that! When I refer to Dragon I am talking about Dragon NaturallySpeaking (speech recognition software).

Yes, in the meanwhile I did make that connection too:))

I got mine at Amazon. It was on sale. I recommend Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium version 13, for Windows. I don't recommend the Home version nor the Mac version (they have had a lot of problems with that one).

Thats a shame, I use a Mac exclusively. Thanks for this extra info though.

It is a shame. The Kindle book I read said that Mac users can install VM (virtual machine?) on their computers, install Windows OS, then install Dragon (Windows version).

But, I don't know anything about that stuff.

I've always had an interest in Linux OS. Don't think it works at all on that one. I would need the VM and a copy of Linux OS. I think. Out of my depth at the moment with this.

I have Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium version 13 for Windows. Don't get the Home version. Not worth it.
I know that the Mac version is not good. It is truly lacking.
That picture is quite hilarious to me. There are a couple others from that session. Buddy is a nut!

What an app. Enlisting the pup as an associate!

He wouldn't be an associate if he didn't take over my lap while I work. I think I am still the boss. Or maybe the cat is.

You're welcome!
My main reason is shown in the photo. The little brat...

Is he in your way again, mine tries to sit on my lap.

He has been doing this more since we moved to the new space. But, it's kind of hard to type when he is right there. Usually I don't mind, unless I am working. At least I know he isn't chewing on something he shouldn't.
