13 What Educators Are Saying About Dragon NaturallySpeaking The Best Speech Recognition Software in the World –Don W. – “Until I started using Dragon Naturally Speaking in my classroom, I thought that I had seen it all. As an Elementary teacher, I find that Dragon is very versatile. I use a digital projector and Dragon for many of my lessons. What’s so cool about Dragon is that it allows me to create exciting lessons on-the-fly with students. Students dictate sentences to me and then I repeat them so that they magically appear before my 3rd graders eyes. They are so impressed that they are all picking up on the commands used for dictation” –Paul S. “ It's 7 a.m. on a Tuesday morning I've just arrived at my classroom and waiting by the door is one of my students who has only been in this country a few years. He's not waiting for a detention; he's waiting for me to turn on my computer, put on my headset, and speak his essay into a Word document using Dragon NaturallySpeaking”
14 What Educators Are Saying About Dragon NaturallySpeaking-cont. Paul S. cont. “As class progresses we have completed an outline of an essay. I put on the headset and begin dictating my essay directly into the computer. As though it's magic my essay is displayed on my big-screen TV. My room of 35, street smart eighth-graders, sits in rapt attention as I quickly write, and model, the essay I expect them to produce. Later that day I open up Dragon NaturallySpeaking and write a letter of recommendation for one of my colleagues who is applying to a leadership program at the local university. As my teaching day is now over, I use the program to prepare the next day's lessons. Before I leave school that night, I open an Excel file where I keep the local high school basketball team information and statistics that I use in my volunteer job as the local basketball announcer. Before I wrap it up for the night I use the program to answer my personal e-mail.” “Dragon NaturallySpeaking has not only helped me become a better teacher, it has helped hundreds of students who pass through my classroom every year.”
