A new year, a new name

learndragononline is now learnspeechrecognition

If you have visited this website before, you may have noticed that the name has changed. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It used to be Learn Dragon Online, but now it is LearnSpeechRecognition.com.

You see, I used to only offer courses and services only for Dragon (NaturallySpeaking) speech recognition, but that has recently changed.

Voice Control for Apple

Apple has released their Voice Control feature. That is HUGE!

Now Mac and iPad users have a really useful dictation and voice control feature available, completely for free.

As with all speech recognition software, it takes some getting used to, so I am now offering online courses for Voice Control. Exciting stuff.

New name

Now that I’m also offering non-Dragon courses, it doesn’t make sense for my site to be called Learn Dragon Online. Hence the name change.

For the moment, most of the content of the website will still be geared towards Dragon.ย As time progresses you’ll see more and more content geared towards dictation on Mac and iPad. Just watch this space!

At this point in time, though, Apple Voice Control is not yet as powerful as Dragon, nor as accurate. For anyone who really depends on dictation and speech commands, Dragon on a Windows PC is still unrivalled.

But watch this short demo of me dictating on my iPad with Voice Control. Ironically I am replying to a comment from a participant in my free Dragon course ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m still your Dragon expert ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not going to stop helping you out with your Dragon speech recognition. Y0u can still join my Learn Dragon Online membership, where I continue to serve my students and help them get te most out of Dragon.

It’s just that the name of the website now reflects that I’ll be able to help Apple users with their speech recognition as well.

Hi, I'm Janneke and I'm your go-to person for Dragon and Apple speech recognition software help.

When I got severe repetitive strain injury issues over 20 years ago, I didn't want to give up using the computer. So I learned all about controlling the PC with speech recognition and dictating my documents and emails.

I've now been a speech recognition software trainer and consultant for almost two decades, teaching over 2000 people handsfree productivity!

My online courses for Apple Voice Control and Dragon offer self-paced learning and I also love running my membership for Dragon users. For those in need of an intensive training or custom speech command creation, I am available for one-on-one calls.
