Voice Recognition

Voice recognition is used mostly by our clients with disabilities.  If your voice is not affected by your disability then voice recognition can be a very powerful tool.  If your voice is affected and you would like to know if you can use voice recognition, call us and explain the situation.  We can even come to you and let you try it for yourself.

Voice commands can start programs, dictate emails and letters, and control your environment. 

Control your Environment

Control your PC

The following is an example of what can be done with your voice.  It shows how you can start your email program, compose an email and then send it.  The <pause> text is not actually spoken, but represents a pause while speaking.  All text within quotes is what is spoken.

  • "Start Outlook" <pause>
  • "New mail" <pause>
  • "Dear Mom and Dad" <pause> "comma" <pause> "new paragraph" <pause>
  • "Dan from Custom Automation Technologies stopped by today and installed my new Environmental Control Unit and voice recognition software" <pause> "period" <pause> "new paragraph" <pause>
  • "I am writing this email by speaking what I want to say" <pause> "period" <pause> "I can't imagine how I got along without it" <pause> "period" <pause> "new paragraph"
  • "I can't wait to see both of you this weekend" <pause> "period" <pause> "new paragraph" <pause>
  • "Love" <pause> "comma" <pause> "new line" <pause>
  • "David" <pause>
  • "Send mail"

When providing voice recognition for a client, we use Dragon Naturally Speaking Pro.  The Pro version of DNS allows for scripts to be written that allow full control and customization over what actions your voice commands perform.

Already have DNS and need some help writing scripts to customize it?  We can help.
