Pro Dictation Boxes offer greatly improved functionality and enhanced visibility compared to the SP Standard edition. Get ready to work with the most versatile, user-friendly boxes ever!
SP Editor the feature-rich, ergonomic alternative to DragonPad. With more than 100 built in voice commands this is the most Dragon friendly text editor ever!
Hotkeys for Dragon 2.0 allows you to load 72(!) Dragon voice commands and launch them with a Hotkey. Just type in the command name and you're good to go. The hotkeys also work with top level menus and primary application/dialog buttons.
Quick Store the fastest way to store website text and URLs, has become a global application and now works in all browsers, even in Edge/Edge Dev.
Application Activation a faster, more reliable alternative to the Dragon swith to <application> commands, has become more powerful and wider application support was added.
Dragon & VC Restart the fastest way to restart Dragon when it has crashed, now also offers support for KnowBrainer and SpeechStart+. Quickly relaunch them all in seconds, with a Hotkey!
Of course SP 5.7 Pro also includes Chrome Search and Speaker.
The Pro Dictation Boxes can quickly be maximized and minimized. Most Boxes support custom resizing as well. Size and location will be remembered next time you launch the box. This is a global setting which will reliably persist after reboot.
You can place the Pro Dictation Boxes anywhere on the screen or quickly move them to a pixel precise location with convenient voice commands. The new Grab function will make sure the box is quickly out of the way. You can even make the boxes follow your mouse cursor!
Completely hide the Dictation Box (with its contents) and bring it back with just one voice command. This is the perfect privacy solution if you're temporarily away from your computer or if you want to exclude the box from your Alt+Tab sequences.
Visibility and accessibility are core features of SP Pro. Several boxes have one click text resize/color options and built-in high contrast, compact and transparent modes.
The dedicated High Contrast Dictation Box has convenient text zoom and color commands. Users with eyesight problems will welcome the Visual Impaired Mode which renders very large, razor-sharp font. If you're prone to headaches and/or migraines triggered by vivid colors and colorful images on computer screens then you can use the No Headache Dictation Box version introduced in the most recent SP Pro 5.7.3 update.
There is a dedicated Transparent Dictation Box with true transparency allowing all light to come through. The result is a crystal-clear view on the underlying target application. SP Pro also features 10 levels of global translucency (semi-transparency) that work with all Dictation Boxes.
Apart from the Default Dictation Box you get Advanced, Large, Log, Translucent, Transparent, TTS, Non-Clipboard, Tiny, Top Left and Hotkey controlled Push & Talk Dictation Box versions.
Transfer all text in the box or only the text that you have selected. Optional TRANSPORT feature instantly reopens the box after transfer, keeping the Dictation Box "virtually open".
The SP Dictation Boxes by default always transfer to the active (foreground) application but with SP Pro you can now directly transfer to applications that are minimized or don't have focus (virtual locking). All known applications like Chrome, Edge, Word, Outlook, Thunderbird are supported (for all supported applications see Application Activation feature below). This is great if you work with multiple programs or decide to transfer your text to another application.
You can store a total amount of 72 Dragon voice commands (both built in and custom Dragon commands) that can then be launched with a hotkey. There are three group pages (tabs) each with 24 hotkey combinations. Changes are applied immediately (real-time) and stored to the registry.
The hotkeys are dominant (take precedence over built in, existing application/window hotkeys). You can designate any Dragon voice command to the following (fixed) hotkey combinations:
Alternate + Function Keys
Control + Function Keys
Control + Alternate + Function Keys
Win + Function Keys
Control + Win + Function Keys.
You can also create hotkeys to control top-level menus like File, Edit, View, Format in text editors like Notepad, Wordpad and Word.
Main dialog buttons are also supported so you can easily create hotkeys for the Transfer and Cancel buttons of the Dragon dictation box or the most important buttons of the Dragon Options dialog.
