Preparing your Digital Recorder for Training:

1. Make Sure the recorder is in Stereo Mode. You should see “ST” on the digital recorder display screen. (to changes modes see page 50 in the IC Recorder Operation manual)
2. Flip the recorder over on the back make sure the MIC SENS is switched to DICT

Reading the Article into the Digital Recorder

1. You are now ready to record the selected article, switch the slider to record.
2. Make sure you read at least 15 min of dictation into the recorder.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT dictate punctuation during training.

3. Once you have completed at least 15 minutes of recording, switch the slider to the Stop position.

2. Click “Next” in the “Recording your Speech” Window.
3. In the “Transferring your Speech” Window Click the “Sony Digital Voice Editor” Button. This will launch the Sony Digital Voice Editor Software.

7. In the “Adapt Dragon NaturallySpeaking to your writing Style” Click “Next” unless, the documents on your computer do not represent your personal writing/dictation style, then you should skip this step.
8. Click Finish.

How to Transcribe Audio Files

Once you have created a Speech Profile, you can begin dictating into your recorder and transcribe your audio files. Record your dictation into the Sony digital recorder. Now you are ready to download your files to the PC.

1. Connect the recorder to the USB Cable.
2. Launch the Sony Voice Editor Software
3. Select the audio file you would like to transcribe.
4. Click the “Voice Recognition” Button. The Editor software will automatically launch the Dragon NaturallySpeaking software if it is not already open.
5. In the “Transcribe” Window Click “Transcribe”. The transcribed text will appear in the DragonPad window (by default) or you can choose to have the text appear in another window by clicking the "A selected window" option on the Advanced Settings dialog box.

How to make correction to your digital recorder Speech Profile

To display the DragonBar Extras toolbar, click the 2 downward facing arrows in the right hand corner of the NaturallySpeaking Toolbar. You cannot display the Extras toolbar if the DragonBar is in cling mode.
1. Use the buttons on the Extras toolbar to play back dictation.
2. Select the text you want to correct by mouse or keyboard.
3. Press the Correction hot key (normally the minus ( - ) key on the numeric key pad) or click the Correction button on the DragonBar Extras toolbar. The Correction menu appears with the selected text. If the Correct word is not in the list Choose “Spell That” and Type the word or phrase.

When you correct someone else's dictation, make sure that the amount of disk space you have reserved for speech data is large enough. Look at the disk space reserved for speech data on the Miscellaneous tab of the Options dialog box which can be found by Clicking “Tools” “Options” on the NaturallySpeaking Toolbar. The space specified when your user files are open should be at least as large as the space specified when the author's user files are open.
Saving dictation with documents can take up a lot of disk space, typically about 1.5 MB per minute of dictation. To free up this space, delete the dictation files you no longer need. Dragon NaturallySpeaking saves dictation in a file with the same name as the document, but with the extension .DRA. For example, if you dictate a document called MyDoc.rtf and save your dictation, Dragon NaturallySpeaking saves your dictation in a file called MyDoc.dra in the same directory as your document. Delete Mydoc.dra using Windows Explorer when you no longer need your dictation.
