Publisher's Summary

As writers, we all know what an incredible tool dictation software can be. It enables us to write faster and avoid the dangers of RSI and a sedentary lifestyle. But many of us give up on dictating when we find we can't get the accuracy we need to be truly productive.
This book changes all of that. With almost two decades of using Dragon software under his belt and a wealth of insider knowledge from within the dictation industry, Scott Baker will reveal how to supercharge your writing and achieve sky-high recognition accuracy from the moment you start using the software. You will learn:

Hidden tricks to use when installing Dragon NaturallySpeaking on a Windows PC or Dragon Dictate for Mac
How to choose the right microphone and set it up perfectly for speech recognition
The little-known techniques that will ensure around 99% accuracy from your first install - and how to make this even better over time
Setting up fail-safe dictation profiles with multiple microphones and voice recorders, without impacting your accuracy
How to train the software to adapt to both your voice and writing style and avoid your accuracy declining
Strategies for achieving your entire daily word count in just one or two hours
Many more tips and tricks you won't find anywhere else

It's time to write at the speed of speech - and transform your writing workflow forever!

I should have realized this was mostly about how t

I learned...
-The type of microphone recommended. I had it.
-Not to do a lot of Dragon's speaking exercises because it doesn't train Dragon for me. I wasn't.
-Practice with my phone apps that do voice to text. (Have been for years.)
-Practice until I get better.
-The experience of the author and his compelling reason for beginning to investigate dragon.

I haven't yet investigated the bonus material.

After I do that I may change my rating, but for now I am not sure that this had anything to do with training Dragon software for writers specifically.
