Removing a word from Dragon

Jeans_ Genes_

Have you ever been annoyed that Dragon is recognising a word that you do not want?

Suppose you are a geneticist, then it is no fun if Dragon occasionally recognises “jeans” when you are talking about “genes”.

Or suppose you accidentally added a misspelled word to the vocabulary. Oops… but it happens to the best of us : smile:

In that case you will want to make Dragon ‘unlearn’ that particular word, so that it won’t write it down again. You can make the speech recognition forget a word by removing it from the vocabulary.

In the video below I show you how to quickly remove a weirdly spelt word from the vocabulary. With a single voice command; it’s really cool. And don’t worry, the word is only removed from that particular user profile’s vocabulary, so it is not entirely removed from Dragon. And also you can add it again to the vocabulary if you ever need that word again.

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.
