For a limited amount of time we include some of the SP 5 Pro Legacy Dictation Boxes as a bonus. This may expire soon so act now!
The new All-in-One Dictation Box is Speech Productivity's flagship. It bundles the functionalities of all previous SP Dictation Boxes into one convenient, multifunctional Box. Loading speed was improved once more and many exciting features were added like Adjustable Auto Transfer, Intelligent Transport, Extended Citrix Support, Statistics Count, Advanced Search & Replace, Auto Font Adjust, Auto Get Text, Enhanced Proofreading options an integrated Web Search.
Those with vision problems will welcome this highly visible box with its Enhanced Accessibility Views and additional Color Themes. Programmers will like the built in support for virtually all cases like PascalCase, snake_case, kebab-case etc..
This really is the Ultimate Dictation Box! DEMONSTRATION VIDEO
The All-in-One Dictation Box is fully customizable. Use Simple, Compact, Advanced or the innovative Dual Mode or choose your own Color Theme. Everything will be remembered upon next boot.
Citrix users can completely fine-tune the Transfer process to their specific needs while users with visibility problems will welcome the various Accessibility Options.
Improved Text to Speech and Hotkey control are fully integrated and can conveniently be turned on or off. The same goes for Auto Backup, Auto Font Adjust, Intelligent Punctuation, and the option to not use the clipboard (for programmers).
The Quiet Box is a minimal dictation window that can be completely hidden if so desired yet allowing dictated text to be automatically passed to a target application. Detection of the target is automatic and so is the transfer process. We've just implemented the new "Sticky" feature allowing you to transfer to a fixed application while browsing other windows.
Want even more automation? Enable the Auto Punctuation checkbox and every utterance will automatically land in your target as a full sentence (with initial Cap and "."). But that's not all in the most recent version we included Auto Box© mode. That means the innovative blend of auto transfer and full Select-and-Say control!
Made a mistake? No problem, the box can undo your last utterance directly in your target application. You can also pause the box to quickly get it out of the way. Resuming your dictation is just as easy.
Best of all, this box works everywhere (not just in speech unfriendly applications :-)).
Want to dictate more than just a couple of sentences? Instantly switch to Manual Mode for full Select-and-Say capability.
Experienced Dragon® users know that any kind of automatic transfer method (although great for short dictations in Facebook, WhatsApp etc.) is only as good as its available correction options. After all, no one has 100% Dragon® accuracy and you don't want to revert to tedious manual corrections or clunky script workarounds.
With just one click (or command) Quiet Box will unfold to a larger, fully featured manual dictation box with the classical Transfer and Transport functionality and 100% genuine Select-and-Say control.
But of course this mode also allows the Auto Box© functionality.

The improved SP Editor© in SP 6 PRO (which is actually the version meant for the upcoming SP 7 PRO) is the Fastest and Safest alternative to NatSpeak's DragonPad®. With over 100 built in Voice Commands, Convenient 1-Click Operations, Enhanced Formatting, Advanced Proofread options, All Casings Support, High Contrast and Visually Impaired accessibility modes, Ergonomic features, Integrated Web Search and built in Text To Speech, this is the most voice friendly text editor ever!
SP Editor© supports rtf, text, ini, dvc, csv, cs, xml. You can set SP Editor as default editor for all these file types.
You can also use SP Editor© as a very advanced Dictation Box.
SP Application Activation has become one of the most popular features in the package. It's actually one of the most powerful modules.
As a Dragon user you've probably found out that the native Dragon® switch to <application>
The latest version of SP Application Activation takes things to a whole new level. You can activate anything you see in the taskbar. You can even use partial names. You can also directly close applications (without having to activate them first).
Quickly place Explorer or program windows to any of the 9 grid locations on your screen (top left, top center, middle of the screen, center-right, bottom right etc.) by voice.
If you use the module Placer discussed below you can even use 16 grid(!) placement.
The package also contains commands for nudging the window to any direction. On top of that you can use the Follow Cursor feature which will move the window to your current mouse pointer location.
One of the exciting new features is the option to move the active window relative to the previously active window i.e. "To the left", "To the bottom" of that window. You can completely rearrange your windows by voice! DEMONSTRATION VIDEO
Sizing Explorer Windows, Browsers and applications like MS Word completely hands-free is not so easy with Dragon®. Particularly if you want to set the new size relative to the current size.
Now you can resize your application windows with an exact percentage (in relation to the current size). For example you can say: "Size 120". This will make your window 20% bigger, "Size 75" will make it 25% smaller. You can adjust Height or Width only.
SP 6 PRO also supports absolute sizing. Check out New Size and Absolute Resizer
These features are extremely useful in your day-to-day work, especially if you combine them with the Window Placement commands.
Making the SP Dictation Box translucent (semi transparent) was already featured in previous versions. But now we've turned it into a global feature. You can actually make any application translucent (yes, even the Dragon® dictation box ;-)) by voice easily!
Picture the possibilities, you can work virtually in two Windows at the same time. Browse the web while keeping an eye on the underlying application (like EMR, Email client etc.).
You get 10 levels of translucency where 1 is almost fully transparent and 10 is completely opaque.
Note that the All-In-One Dictation Box has its own translucency slider.
This utility that complements the SP Global Sizing feature, offers a convenient GUI to resize your application or Explorer windows with absolute sizes (pixels) by voice.
Apart from the 18 default templates you can add 4 custom templates or directly dictate the desired width and height. In addition you can quickly change a square window to rectangle and vice versa.
We proudly present SysTray the innovative tool to approach the notification area (tray icons) by voice. You will not only see all the icons' tooltips in one glance (so you know what they represent) but you can also directly activate them, choosing a left or right click.
The program gives you several options to approach the notification area items. You can use the reference number, select by dictation or simply move up or down the list.
This is the tool that hands-free users have been waiting for!
A convenient, universal tool for (smooth) scrolling of webpages and text documents without the need to import multiple voice commands. Glide supports scrolling in all directions with various speeds.
You can do discrete or continuous scrolling. Control scrolling speed in real-time or set your custom speeds in the Speed Factor configuration menu. In addition you can pause, resume or even reverse the scrolling direction. Watch Demonstration Video
HyperNotes makes it possible to quickly store anything that pops into mind with two or even one single voice command and without any Save as dialogs. Your dictation is automatically stored to a dedicated text file in your Documents folder. Date and time are added with every new entry as well.
Speaker is the faster, more reliable alternative to the Dragon Text To Speech voices. The Dragon® TTS voices don't work in browsers and several other programs. Speaker works everywhere, guaranteed!
Speaker automatically puts your microphone to sleep before reading and turns it back on again when finished. This is particularly convenient for those who use sensitive desktop microphones.
This completely rebuilt GUI version allows Pause/Resume reading by pressing Enter or Space. Pressing the End key will stop the reading.
Note that the TTS function in the All-In-One Dictation Box is different. It reads punctuation marks out loud as well (which can be particularly useful for proofreading). However, in the Dictation Box you can use both.
The fastest, most ergonomic way to quickly save URLs and website text by voice. There's no interruption of your workflow and your data will be written to a dedicated Notepad™-style file in your Documents folder. Date and time are added as well.
The commands are available in all browsers. The “Quick Store URL” command is also useful in Windows Explorer because there it will save the folder path (if you want to create voice commands with AppBringUp or ShellExecute).
In addition you have the command “Quick Store That” at your disposal. Just highlight some text in any application and say the command. There it’s stored! It’s that simple :-).
As an experienced Dragon® user you probably already use the "list applications" or "list programs" commands. These useful voice commands open up the List of windows pop-up where you can choose which of the running processes to activate.
You can consider the new Placer as an activation tool on steroids ;-) Not only can you activate any running application but you can also kill it, size it or place it in any of the 16 (!) grid locations.
Experienced users probably know that some of the processes that appear in Task Manager as well as in List of windows are not actually programs you can activate (like Microsoft Text Input Application). They are merely background processes or even items in the notification area (like Malwarebytes Tray Application). So these are typically the kind of processes that you don't want to see in your list of applications.
That's why Placer gives you the option to both Blacklist applications and put them on the Green list :-)
Previously sold as a standalone utility, now part of SP 6 Pro. Quickly keep the left or right mouse buttons pressed by voice (you can also keep the mouse wheel pressed for smooth scrolling of webpages). Much faster than using Advanced Scripting commands. You can also keep the left mouse button pressed for a defined number of seconds (up to 50, after which it wil release automatically).
If you select text with the utility, either manually or by using the Dragon mouse motion commands you can have that text copied automatically upon button release.
There's also support for VoiceComputer Intags. You can directly "grab" items on your desktop or in Windows Explorer by using the Press <number> command. Watch DEMONSTRATION VIDEO
Rapidly create voice commands for killing any process/application you specify. This can be convenient if a program has become unresponsive or if you want to quickly restart
programs (like Dragon® for instance). No more need to create separate batch files or VBS scripts!
With SP Process Killer the procedure is easy. Just replace the words "your application" in the template command with the name of the executable you want to kill: Notepad®, dictation box, Paint, Chrome or any other process in Task Manager.
Some applications like Chrome or WhatsApp have multiple instances running in Task Manager. You can kill them all by simply adding the word "all" to the template script line. It's that easy!
The popular utility has been around since the very first Speech Productivity versions. It allows you to quickly close or restart Dragon®, VoiceComputer, KnowBrainer and SpeechStart+ with a simple hotkey. You can close/restart them individually or close/restart them all.
You won't have to leave the application or window you're working in. There's no interruption of your workflow! This utility is particularly handy if speech has become unresponsive.

In previous SP Pro versions the hotkeys were fixed. Now you can set your own using the new SP Hotkey Manager which allows launching any program (exe) with a hotkey of your choice.
SP 6 PRO now features a completely configurable Keyboard Hook! You can register single or combined hotkeys to open any application (or PDF file) you want including the SP modules and/or their help files.
You can load up to 900 applications using Hotkeys with this powerful tool. Of course the only limitation is the amount of keys on your keyboard ;-).
Easily launch any application you want with this powerful tool!
SP Text Tools© is a powerful module to edit text in speech unfriendly applications without the need to use a dictation box.
You can directly Change words or sentences in your speech unfriendly target application with the included SP Selection Tool almost in the same way you would do with the Dragon® correction window. It also supports multiple text matches.
But that's only the beginning. You can directly Remove or Replace words with only one command.This even works with compounded strings (like words inside a URL in the browser address bar).
The removal feature is very powerful it also allows you to remove unnecessary Apostrophes, Braces, Brackets, Colons, Commas, Dashes, Hashes (#), Parens, Periods, Questions (?), Spaces, Stars (*), Tildes (~), Underscores etc.. The Replacement feature not only allows replacement of words
Easily Alphabetize and Sort your text or directly apply all popular Casings like camelCase, PascalCase, kebab-case, Snake_Case to your text. SP Text Tools is also the easiest way to quickly Quote or Unquote text in your speech unfriendly target application.
Even more features will be added to this module in the future!
Give your voice a rest. Load up to 900 Dragon® voice commands and load them with a hotkey! Choose your own key combinations.
If only you had enough keys on your keyboard ;-)
You can also create hotkeys to control top-level menus like File, Edit, View, Format in text editors like Notepad®, Wordpad and Word.
Main application/dialog buttons are also supported so you can for instance, create hotkeys for the Transfer and Cancel buttons of the Dragon dictation box or the main sections in the Dragon® Options dialog.
You probably know the Mouse setting in Windows to show the current pointer location when pressing the CTRL key.
While useful, we were looking for something more “Visual”. Besides, this Windows setting also has a tendency to show the pointer animation while using the control key as part of a (hot)key combination, which can be annoying.
Therefore we came up with the “Find Me” voice command which shows a pointer animation you can’t miss. Watch Demonstration Video
With so many productivity tools ;-) it sure can be tempting to work on your computer for hours :-). Experienced Dragon® users know they can achieve great results in a small amount of time. Who hasn't been there? You think "let's finish this up, won't take more than half an hour". When those 30 minutes have passed you think "let's do a quick reply to some emails that need addressing and then I'll turn off my computer". And then just before logging off you decide to quickly check your Facebook page...
Let's face it "quickly" usually becomes "long". There's just so much to do! Before you know it you spend well over three hours behind the screen without taking any breaks at all (again :-(). This can be more serious than it looks. Staring at the screen for prolonged periods of times is bad for your eyesight. Talking to your computer for prolonged period of times can cause voice strain. In addition, since many users don't use correct posture, you are at risk of developing neck and shoulder problems too.
This is not necessarily about discipline. It's actually a matter of using the proper tool to help you along. This is where SP Pause Reminder comes in. The utility allows you to set a time frame that you want to work, and a break time. When the time has expired the microphone goes to sleep. You'll hear a beep sound and the Pause Reminder will fill your entire screen (those last two settings are optional). When your break has passed the microphone turns back on again, enabling you to get back to work. Simple and sweet. Just what you needed!
