Maria Langer has completed yet another new book, Dragon Dictate 2.5: Visual QuickStart Guide, and shares how she adapted the visual quickstart guide methodology to a program that isn’t all that visual. Before you start talking to your Mac, let Maria set your expectations about training (“not much”), results (“amazing”), microphone and environment requirements, and how Dragon Dictate lets you go beyond just dictation. What you can get done easily, what takes a little more effort, and the pricing of the eBook version are all delivered in this conversation that will open you up to a new way of interacting with your Mac.
