Consider a Dragon Installation and Training Flash Drive - 16 GB USB 3 Flash Drive containing any Dragon product full installation, Installation / Training Manuals, KnowBrainer Command Software, KnowBrainer Knowledge Base. We also recommend keeping a backup of your user profile and include instructions to do so.
KnowBrainer 2017 is a third-party command utility that adds thousands of commands and numerous capabilities to Dragon, simplifies the learning curve and substantially increases your efficiency. KnowBrainer can even utilize built-in Windows speech recognition commands like DISPLAY Numbers which numbers every possible mouse click position so that you can left click, right click or double click any position with a single command. By comparison, the Dragon's MouseGrid command only works on 1 computer screen and can require up to 5 additional commands. From a command point of view, KnowBrainer is vastly superior to professional versions of Dragon which utilizes an older, limited and much slower command technology. KnowBrainer also includes an interactive ultra-dynamic sidebar that displays all available commands and doubles as a Command Browser. You can find or open any KnowBrainer command by saying FIND COMMAND
or EDIT COMMAND
. Example: Say Edit Command
to open the KnowBrainer Paragraph command for editing. By comparison, the sluggish Dragon Learning Center (sidebar) is static and only displays a partial list of commands.
KnowBrainer includes 65 open ended vocabulary commands (utilizing any vocabulary word/s), for Dragon 13 and higher, such as Google For
, Search Contacts for
, Spanish Translation for
and Search Computer for
Dragon can only be used to directly dictate in less than 1% of applications. Non-Dragon friendly applications require opening the Dictation Box, dictating and then transferring your dictation to the target application. The KnowBrainer Insert
command enables direct dictation in any field or application that accepts typing. Example: Say Insert
to type "my dog has fleas" ANYWHERE!
KnowBrainer includes our patented ability to verbally create VB, DVC & .Net commands which is 10 times faster than typing but we didn't stop there. We kicked it up a notch by adding 3 groundbreaking commands that create VB scripting and boilerplate text commands automatically. You can now create Advanced-Scripting commands without any scripting or programming knowledge. For example, if you want to create a command that will click on a button or menu called, for example, Widget, simply hover the mouse over any button or menu and say something like New Mouse Command Called
. KnowBrainer will record X & Y coordinates, create, name and save your Visual Basic Scripting command in less than 2 seconds. KnowBrainer includes a similar command creation function based on the previously mentioned DISPLAY Numbers command (detailed in our KnowBrainer manual). You can voice automate any application within a few minutes. To create a fast boilerplate text command highlight a paragraph and say New Text Command Called
. We like to think of KnowBrainer 2016 as Dragon hamburger helper. Dragon is the beef and KnowBrainer is the helper J

Other new features include extensive help files, the ability to create Advanced Scripting commands in VB or .Net and much faster command deployment (twice as fast as Dragon commands and previous versions of KnowBrainer).
KnowBrainer 2017 is only available in ENGLISH and only includes limited functionality for non-English versions of Dragon. KnowBrainer 2016 is compatible with Dragon 11 - 15 and DMPE 1 - 3 Windows 7 32-bit & 64-bit, Windows 8 and Widows 10 operating systems.

"An essential tool to make the most of Dragon"

Review Description: KnowBrainer has helped me not only with quick command creation, but it has been key to help me understanding the basics of scripting. Adapting and using the built-in commands is incredibly easy, and for dual-language users, it has the added bonus of keeping all the commands in a single location. Even with a professional version of Dragon, KnowBrainer has made a huge difference in my motivation to use and create custom commands. A great product, paired with an excellent user forum are a winning c... More details

Review Description: A couple of days ago I learned that KnowBrainer had an offer for the disabled where we were able to get a free copy of the software which would enhance Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Because of the problems that I experienced with Dragon (nothing at all serious but it did require me to type more than I wanted)I decided to see if I qualified for the offer. I expected to receive a call from someone as well as a request for all of my medical records or a letter from the doctor. But what I couldn't belie... More details
"KB-2014 and DNS 13"

Review Description: The combination of KB-2014 and DNS 13 that I purchased last week is fantastic. They are everything that I thought a speech recognition software could be.
