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 5% 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 2017 as Dragon hamburger helper. Dragon is the beef and KnowBrainer is the helper J
