This guide is aimed at novice Dragon Professional users who want to get productive creating their own voice commands. Contrary to other books on the subject this is an easy to understand, step-by-step manual that will get you up and running in no time.

It focuses mainly on DVC scripting (Dragon’s initial scripting language) and not on the Advanced Scripting language that came with later versions. Advanced Scripting has become rather slow in DPI (Dragon Professional Individual) 14 and 15 while DVC scripting still guarantees the fastest possible command deployment in Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional versions.

The book only discusses scripting elements that people will actually use on a day-to-day basis. There’s no unnecessary complexity which so often is a turnoff for beginners. This guide uses easy to understand language. Lots of practical examples are included. It will definitely inspire you to come up with your own creative command ideas!
