The SP Dictation Boxes have become extremely popular among Dragon NaturallySpeaking® users because of their high visibility, user-friendliness, versatility and particularly, their loading speed.
SP 6 Standard offers an impressive collection of dedicated dictation boxes like DB Dual, DB Log, DB High Contrast, DB TTS, DB Transparent and of course the most popular one: DB Advanced.
SP Standard comes with additional Power Commands for Semi-Automatic Launching of the (default) Dictation Box. This works via the trigger word "Speak" followed by your dictation. Which will automatically open up the box with your dictation already pasted in. From there on the you can dictate further.
On the right you can watch a short demonstration video of that and some of the other functionalities of the default SP Dictation Box
The Dragon® "Spell" voice command natively only works in supported (speech friendly) applications like Notepad, MS Word, WordPad etc.
However, most other applications like Thunderbird, Opera, Visual Studio, Paint.Net, Filmora are not speech friendly...
SP 6 Standard makes it possible to launch the Dragon® Spelling Window in any application. That allows the user to spell into any application that accepts text.

Absolutely the quickest and simplest way to store your ideas and thoughts. No annoying “Save as” dialogs, no interruptions of your workflow!
Just call up the fast HyperNote Box, dictate your text, say “Store Note” and you’re done. Time and date are added automatically. It just doesn't get any easier than this!
What was the URL of that website again? What was the contents of that Facebook post... I should have copied the text in that email...
You wish you'd had Quick Store! The quickest, most ergonomic way to save URLs and (website)text by voice. No interruption of your workflow, just one voice command and your data is written to a dedicated file in your Documents folder. Date and time are added automatically with each entry.
Quick Store is also useful in Windows Explorer for saving folder paths (if you want to create AppBringUp or ShellExecute voice commands).
There, it’s stored! It’s that simple :-).
Some Dragon users might have noticed that the Dragon TTS voices don't work in several applications like Thunderbird and most Internet browsers. Speaker works everywhere, guaranteed!
The Dragon® microphone automatically goes to sleep before reading and wakes up again when the reading is done. This is particularly handy if you are using a sensitive desktop microphone. Watch Demonstration Video
Full Select-and-say enabled searches in Brave, Chrome, Edge, Firefox, SlimBrowser and Internet Explorer right from your desktop with this extremely fast and practical tool.
If you combine SP Search with the below Search Correct module you have almost complete voice control of these browser's address bars.
Want even more Internet search options? Check out Quick Panel
The address bar of most browsers is typically speech unfriendly. Replacing words by voice (Select-and-Say) is usually not possible. You can of course install the Dragon web extensions but that won't always solve the address bar dictation problem. Besides, on some systems it causes Dragon to hang or freeze.
Search Correct offers a different solution. You can correct, remove and even compound words almost in the same way you would with the native Dragon correct <dictation>
Perform high precision resizing to any program/Explorer window simply by dictating the new amount of horizontal and vertical pixels. Voice command examples: "Size 900 by 700", "Size 1500 by 500". "Size 755 by 215".
These commands will greatly enhance your workflow!
Rapidly place program/Explorer windows to any of the 9 grid locations on your screen. You can use direct voice commands (top left, top center, middle of the screen, center-right, bottom right etc.) or call of the Screen Position utility first.
The package also contains commands for precise nudging program/Explorer windows to any direction.
Keep the left, middle or right mouse button pressed by voice). Much faster than using Advanced Scripting commands. In addition you can keep the left mouse button pressed for 1 to 5 seconds after which it wil be released automatically. There's also the option to automatically copy the text you selected upon release.
There's support for VoiceComputer Intags.
Switch is the equivalent to the Alt+Tab (window switching) functionality. Of course you can program these key combinations with Dragon® scripting but the result won’t be nearly as fast.
You can switch forwards or backwards to opened applications or use Window Switcher and choose which window to switch to using the fast SP global direction commands.
We also included the App Switch voice command to cycle through tabs in browsers and email clients.
The mouse pointer can be hard to spot sometimes, particularly in photo editors. SP Standard gives you a voice controlled pointer animation option so you can always spot the mouse easily.
You can choose any of the four highly visible animation pictures. Default is HERE!
An innovative, faster way to directly approach and edit files and folders in Windows Explorer or on Desktop. Previously this kind of direct access was only possible using third-party file/folder numbering programs.
You can do most common file and folder tasks with just one single voice command. Watch the video on the right.
This popular utility has been around since the very first Speech Productivity versions. It allows you to quickly close or restart Dragon® and/or VoiceComputer with simple hotkeys. If speech is still responsive you can also use voice commands to rapidly close these applications.
You won't have to leave the application or window you're working in. There's no interruption of your workflow! The hotkeys are particularly convenient if speech has become unresponsive.

You can store a total amount of 72 Dragon® voice commands (both built in and custom Dragon® commands) and launch them with a Hotkey. Changes are applied immediately (real-time) and stored to the registry. Designate any Dragon® voice command to the following (fixed) key combinations:
Function Keys, Alternate + Function Keys, Control + Function Keys, Control + Alternate + Function Keys, Win + Function Keys
Control + Win + Function Keys.
Another powerful feature is that you can create Hotkeys to top-level menus like File, Edit, View, Format and the main buttons of most applications and dialogs like the Transfer button of the Dragon® dictation box for instance. You can also program simple (non capitalized) boilerplate texts. This is particularly handy if you only need them temporary.
