About Learn Dragon Online

I created Learn Dragon Online to help people get the most out of Dragon speech recognition software.

Why a course on Dragon?

While speech recognition software is not rocket science, it still can be tricky to get Dragon to do what you want. I find that many people struggle to get adequate use out of the software. And that is such a shame, especially since it it usually just a matter of knowledge and practice.

Individual training is the norm, but not everyone has the budget to hire a trainer for individual tuition. And after the trainer has gone, you still have to do everything alone. Membership of Learn Dragon Online will cost you less than one half day of individual training and you will have access to self-paced courses, live Q&A sessions and the online forum for six months! If you want to stay a member after that, a small monthly fee will reserve your access to any course materials, the forum and the Q&A sessions. That means that you can always fall back on expert knowledge if you encounter issues.

Proven education methods

A unique feature of Learn Dragon Online is the combination of media type content. A lesson will usually consist of some text, a short instruction video, possibly a downloadable list of commands and an exercise to practice what you just learned.

If you have question about any lesson, you can immediately go to the forum to ask your question. I will be on the forum most days, of course. There might also be other members who can help you out with your question.

To be honest, Learn Dragon Online is what I would have liked to have available when I was first starting out with DragonDictate and Dragon NaturallySpeaking 20 years ago.

It took a good while to develop everything, but I launched the Dutch version of Learn Dragon Online a few months ago. The first members have completed their course and are participating in the forum to ask questions. Feedback has been really positive, so I am super eager to bring this concept to the English speaking users of Dragon.

Do you want…

  • Self-paced online courses on Dragon speech recognition with multimedia content?

Then sign up for the waiting list for Learn Dragon Online. You will get useful info while on the list and early bird access to the platform when it is finished.

Hi, I'm Janneke and I'm your go-to person for Dragon speech recognition software help.

When I got severe repetitive strain injury issues over 20 years ago, I didn't want to give up using the computer. So I learned all about controlling the PC with speech recognition and dictating my documents and emails.

I've now been a speech recognition software trainer and consultant for almost two decades, teaching over 2000 people handsfree productivity!

My online courses offer self-paced learning and I also love running my membership for Dragon users. For those in need of an intensive training or custom speech command creation, I am available for one-on-one calls.
