We often hear stories of how Dragon NaturallySpeaking helps users who otherwise would have a hard time using their computer. One such person is Erika Keller, 57, of Rochester, who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis. These days, Email, Facebook, Twitter, and Skype are all common means of communication for people who live away from their friends and family, but for people like Erika it is not very easy. She loves staying in touch with her nieces through the Internet, but typing is very challenging. Due to a stroke, one side of her body is also not responding the way it should.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking is changing Erika’s life. Using a headset with a microphone, and her Dragon NaturallySpeaking software, she can communicate with her family via the Internet just like anybody else. Well, not quite like anybody else: She no longer needs to do any typing, but controls everything she does with her voice.
Erika is just one of many users who have been helped by Dragon NaturallySpeaking because of medical needs; however, it’s ok to use it just because you’re bad at spelling too… Or just because it’s more fun, of course!
