ADCET Webinar: Using VoxAid the Dragon Professional add-on with Inspiration Mind Maps

Corrected captions will be added shortly

This ADCET webinar demonstrated how VoxAid, the Dragon Professional add-in, can dramatically enhance a user's voice recognition experience when using a range of assistive technologies. This webinar, along with friends from Inspiration, showcased how VoxAid makes using Inspiration 10 by voice so much easier!

VoxAid software installs thousands of bespoke commands into Dragon to enhance a Dragon user's hands-free control of their favourite assistive technology. With VoxAid installed you can do so much more by voice than with Dragon alone; whether it be with Inspiration or other assistive technologies such as Glean, Read and Write, Claro or MS Office.  

Discover how VoxAid enables you to build your visual-maps, switch views, navigate and access Inspiration's software functions using natural language voice commands.

Also, our friends at Inspiration, provided updates on all the recent new features that have been added to Inspiration 10.
