IBM Voice Type Dictation 3.0, dictate the way you work
Now you can use VoiceType Dictation to create text in your favorite applications! You simply dictate directly into a program like Microsoft(R) Word. Using VoiceType Dictation with other applications couldn't be easier. A quick dictation window pops up automatically to let you know if an application is not speech-aware.
The program gives you a wide variety of ways to dictate text and integrate your applications, including VoiceType Dictation's own speech-aware word processor, called VoicePad. You can also create your own dictation shortcuts [called macros] for often- used text or your return address, for example.
VoiceType Dictation comes with a large 22,000-word base vocabulary, to which you can add another 42,000 words of your own! If you like, you can choose to add your client name-and-address database, product names or other business-specific data to your personal vocabulary.
IBM Voice Type Dictation 3.0 Command And Control:
VoiceType Dictation's VoiceCenter is the hub from which you can easily control your computer with voice commands. Move around your desktop. Start or switch applications. Save or print a file. All by speaking in your normal voice. Take advantage of the multitasking abilities of Windows 95 and OS2 Warp4. Just use your own voice to switch between and control your favorite applications.
The control component of VoiceType Dictation works with "Continuous Speech Commands and Macros. Words run together as you would normally talk, while the dictation component works with "Discrete Speech", or isolated, speech. A slightly more distinct way of speaking that leaves a one-tenth of a second gap between each word.
As you work with the VoiceCenter, the talk area displays what the computer heard you say, or a polite 'pardon me?' if it didn't understand you. The 'what can I say' window will help you out if you're not sure of an exact command. You can also create custom voice commands or speed up often-repeated actions by combining them under a single command. Of course, if you wish, you can still use your keyboard and mouse, too.
VoiceType Dictation also lets you create your own templates for filling in forms quickly and easily with faster turnaround and fewer mistakes. With VoiceType Dictation and a notebook computer, architects, police and other professionals can quickly fill out forms in the field, simply by speaking. Doctors' offices can enter patient information and progress notes. Others can use VoiceType Dictation as a productivity aid for sophisticated data- center operations.
