you would like to install the KnowBrainer 2012 with medical or legal vocabularies, choose
KnowBrainerMedicalSetup. If you do not require the specialty vocabularies or if you purchased Dragon Medical or
Legal, you should install KnowBrainerSetup to enjoy a 30 day evaluation of KB 2012. Note: I f you are installing
KnowBrainerMedical, you can save a step by launching NaturallySpeaking, before insalling KnowBrainerMedica,

recommend using this utility which does an exemplary job of adding contact names to your vocabulary but unfortunately,
processes e-mail messages from your Sent Items folder which typically contains your responses and original e-mail messages
from other people. You would probably not want NaturallySpeaking to adapt your user profile to other people's writing styles;
especially e-mails that contain misspellings and unrecognized abbreviations.



Learn from specific documents (Vocabulary Builder) allows you to feed numerous documents through him NaturallySpeaking
to analyze your writing style and add previously unknown words to your vocabulary. The advantage of this utility is its ability to
quickly process up to several hundred documents with thousands of individual words at a time.

Open Vocabulary Editor (Vocabulary Editor) only permits 1 entry to be added to your vocabulary at a time but it also includes
the ability to apply special rules, phrases and create a separate Spoken Form for the Written Form. The advantage of this utility is
its ability to finely tune your vocabulary, apply rules and add specialty phrases.

1. Say [Vocabulary Builder] or [Add Words from Document] or click Learn from specific documents to launch the Add
Words from Document utility. Note that the KnowBrainer [Vocabulary Builder] jumps ahead to Step #3. Click Next.
You have the option of adding and entire folder of documents or 1 or more files. We will go with the more popular
choice of adding individual documents.

















14





2. Browse to a folder that contains up to 200 pages worth of documents. We dont recommend going over 200 pages. Note
that if you hold down the {Ctrl} Key, you can select multiple documents or press {Ctrl+a} to select all files. Please also
note that the Vocabulary Builder can only process certain types of files such as Plain Text, Rich Text, Microsoft Word
and WordPerfect formatting. The Vocabulary Builder cannot process other types of files such as Excel. After you are
finished selecting your files, click Open


3. Note the 3 previously selected files will appear in the document list box. Also note that Dragon 12 can also process the
latest Microsoft Word format which ends in docx. If you wish to add additional files or another folder, click the Add
Folder or Add Document button. If you are finished adding files, click Next. After NaturallySpeaking finishes the
document analysis, you will see a green checkmark appear before each document. Click Next to continue


















15





4. If NaturallySpeaking runs into unique words, as pictured below, it will show you how frequently those words appear in
your documents and offer you the option to remove them. This is a good way to check for spelling errors. After you
have made your corrections, click Next


5. You will now be offered the option to train unknown words. We typically recommend clicking Check All and then
clicking Next to progress to the next stage. After NaturallySpeaking finishes adapting your vocabulary and writing
style, click Next



6. Click Finish to complete this phase of the operation.

Vocabulary Editor (Fine-Tuning Your Vocabulary)

The previous Vocabulary Builder is a fast blunt approach to increasing your vocabulary accuracy and teaching
NaturallySpeaking your writing style but the Vocabulary Editor is far more powerful. Think of the Vocabulary Editor as fine-
tuning your vocabulary to produce specific phrases and apply specialized rules to specific circumstances.

1. Say [show vocabulary editor] to open the Vocabulary Editor.


2. You can make NaturallySpeaking more accurate by adding commonly used phrases to your vocabulary. This process
can be particularly handy for dictating phrases that you would prefer to appear in Title Case. Rather than having to
dictate Hermitage animal center followed by saying cap that, to produce Hermitage Animal Center, you could
capitalize the phrase, select the phrase and say [Add to Vocabulary], if you're using KnowBrainer. If you're not using
KnowBrainer, you can alternatively, say [make that a phrase] which will copy the phrase to the clipboard, open the
Vocabulary Editor and paste the phrase into Written Form field. You will additionally have to click the Add button and
close the Vocabulary Editor (an effective but much slower process).

3. Another reason to add a phrase to the Written Form of the Vocabulary Editor is to prevent common misrecognitions.
Because most computers include integrated soundcards, there's a good possibility that you are using a USB microphone


17
or USB soundcard with an analog microphone. We commonly refer to a USB soundcard as a USB Pod.
Unfortunately, NaturallySpeaking doesn't like the word Pod and typically types USB pot which can get you into a
bit of trouble if you dont catch that speak-o. Attempting to train NaturallySpeaking to learn the difference between the
word Pod, pot or hot can be equally frustrating. Fortunately, adding commonly misrecognize words to other
words can prevent this issue entirely. Another example of this technique is the phrase an Andrea Electronics
microphone. Because NaturallySpeaking uses rules of probability (most likely scenario), when you attempt to dictate
an Andrea Electronics microphone, NaturallySpeaking will likely type and Andrea electronics microphone.
NaturallySpeaking cannot tell the difference between and and an. DNS also has no way of knowing that
electronics is part of a company name and should appear in Title Case.








4. Most the time, adding a phrase to the Vocabulary Editor's Written Form will suffice but not always. For example, when
we dictate how do I start we want NaturallySpeaking to type How Do I (Start); including the parentheses. By
adding the specialized phrase we want NaturallySpeaking to type into the Written Form and dictating what we want
DNS to hear into the Spoken Form, we can alter NaturallySpeaking's behavior. The following picture includes a number
of these types of examples:


5. Need more options? The Vocabulary Editor includes even more flexibility. When we dictate the word version we
prefer the traditional form of the word but when we insert a number after the word version we prefer it to appear as
the as Ver. 4. This is accomplished by engaging a rule. Begin by opening the Vocabulary Editor and selecting the
word version as follows:


18


6. Click the Properties button, add 2 check marks to the appropriate boxes and type the desired Alternative form 1. The
word version to will become Ver. 2. Also note that you can add a 2nd alternative form.


7. Take a look at previous picture and note the additional formatting rules. Let's take a closer look by examining the [next
line] command. You might think of [next line] as a Dictation command because it has no Written Form and performs an
action without the necessity of pausing before and after the saying its name, like other NaturallySpeaking commands.
Note that when you deploy the [show Vocabulary Editor] command, the 1st word to appear in the the list is a.


19
However, you are not actually at the beginning of the list. When you scroll upwards, you can view the other Dictation
commands. Also note the P surrounded by a square box signifying that we have changed the properties of this
command. Now click the Properties button.



8. The only value we changed was the Format the next word Capitalized. By default, the [new line] and [next line]
commands are identical but we often like to begin the next line of our dictation, even when it doesnt end with a period,
with a capital letter. This is accomplished by changing the properties to suit our needs.

Backing up/Exporting/Importing KnowBrainer Commands

1. Open the C:\Program Files\KnowBrainer2012 folder
2. Double-click KB2012Sync.exe
3. Click the Backup button to create a complete backup copy of your entire command database called kb8_BackUp.
4. You can distribute this file to other licensed KnowBrainer users by copying it into their C:\Program
Files\KnowBrainer2012 folder.
5. After copying the kb8_BackUp to the KnowBrainer directory double-click KB2012Sync.exe
6. After KB2012Sync.exe launches click the Synchronize button to import all commands.

Copying User Files from One Computer to Another

Option #1 (Manufacturer Recommendation):

1. Say or choose Manage Users
2. Click Advanced
3. Click Export to export a copy of your user files
4. Copy the exported folder to a thumb drive and reverse the process (chose Import) on your second computer



20


Option #2 (Windows Explorer):

1. Copy the following folder on your host computer In Win XP your user folder is at ~ C:\Documents and Settings\All
Users\Application Data\Nuance\NaturallySpeaking12\Users\(Your User Name)\ folder and in Win Vista/7 it is at ~
C:\ProgramData\Nuance\NaturallySpeaking12\Users\(your username)\ folder onto a flash drive or over a network
2. Create a new user, with the same name, on the new computer.
3. Exit NaturallySpeaking without completing training.
4. Replace computer ~ C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ Nuance
\NaturallySpeaking12\Users\(Your User Name)\ folder with the folder from your flash drive and launch
NaturallySpeaking

Note: You will not be able to locate the Application Data folder if your computer is set to the default manufacturer settings
which are to Hide Hidden Files and Folders. I n order to view your hidden files and folders you will need to open any folder
(or Windows Explorer), select Folder Options from the Tools menu, click the View tab, click on "Show hidden files and
folders" and press the OK button.

Roaming a User Profile
(Only available in Dragon Pro, Legal and DMPE)

If you are installing NaturallySpeaking on multiple workstations, you'll wind up with a separate user profile on each workstation.
Combining the changes that you make to each user profile can be a major headache unless you enable Roaming which
seamlessly automates the procedure. If you would like to Roam your user profile, See following:
1. Make sure NaturallySpeaking is docked to the top of the page (default setting). Click Close User Profile







21
2. Click on Administrative Settings and Put a checkmark in Enable





3. Click the Network Directory Browse button


4. For this Example we are selecting a copy of our user files off from a Thumb (Flash) Drive. If you wish to Share this
user file over a network (to other computers) you will need to Right-Click on the folder, via Windows Explorer, and
enable Sharing and Security




5. Click the hyperlink and place checkmarks in Share this folder on the network and Allow network users to change
my files




22










Note: I f you are using KnowBrainer, you can only launch
KnowBrainer after opening NaturallySpeaking,
when Roaming.



Deferred Correction
(Only available in Dragon Pro, Legal and DMPE)

In NaturallySpeaking Premium on up, you are limited to playing back a recording of your voice by selecting any recently
dictated text (within the current NaturallySpeaking session) and saying [playback] or pressing {Shift+NumKey-}. The advantage
of Deferred Correction is the ability to embed a recording of your voice within a DragonPad, Microsoft Word or WordPerfect
document to play back at a later date (after closing NaturallySpeaking and rebooting your computer). This feature is limited to
the professional versions of NaturallySpeaking. The following step-by-step will guide you through the Deferred Correction
process:

1. The Dragon default setting is to prompt you to save a recording of your dictation with your document whenever you
save a Microsoft Word, DragonPad or WordPerfect document but let's double check those settings by selecting the
DragonBar and clicking Tools/Options and clicking the Data tab. Depending on your workflow, you will either want to
choose Ask Me or select Always. Note that if you do not need this feature, you can prevent the prompt by optionally
choosing Never.


2. If open the folder, where you saved your document, you will see 2 files with the same name; a Microsoft Word
document and a .dat file.
3. The next time you open the Word file, as long as you have your DNS user profile open, you will be able to randomly
select any text within the file and playback of recording of your original dictation. Also note that you were not limited



23
to the computer you created the file. If NaturallySpeaking is installed on another computer, along with your user profile
or a Roam version of your user profile, you will be able to enjoy the same playback options.
4. You can regain hard drive space by deleting accompanying .dat file after you have finished correcting your document.


AutoTranscribe Folder Agent (batch transcription)
(Only available in Dragon Pro, Legal and DMPE)

Note: If you are using NaturallySpeaking Premium or higher, you can transcribe .WAV, .MP3,.WMA, .DSS or .DS2 recordings
by mouse dragging and dropping the file into DragonPad or via the DragonBar Tools/Transcribe Recording menu. Although
you can create a dedicated digital recorder user profile (we include those instructions with our digital recorders), many end-
users are able to transcribe distal recordings directly into their standard microphone user profile; especially if they use a
professional digital recorders such as the Olympus DS-7000 (available on the KnowBrainer website). The advantage of this
method is that it is simple and quick but the disadvantages are #1 you are completely locked out of your computer when
transcribing a recording and #2, you are limited to transcribing 1 recording at a time. The professional versions of
NaturallySpeaking include a utility called the AutoTranscribe Folder Agent which will allow you to transcribe multiple
recordings. The 2 advantages to using the AutoTranscribe Folder Agent are #1 you can batch transcribe numerous dictations
without having to deal with any prompts and #2 as long as you don't need to use Dragon for dictation, you can continue using
your computer while the transcription takes place in the background. The following is a step-by-step on setting up batch file
transcription.

1. Close Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional (or higher) if it is running.

2. Click Windows Start/All Programs/Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12.x/Dragon NaturallySpeaking
Tools/AutoTranscribe Folder Agent to launch the application. Click Task then New


3. Type C:\Users\(your computer name)\Documents\DSSPlayer\Message\FolderA into the Input directory. You
can optionally click the little square with 3 dots to browse to FolderA.










24
4. You will need to create a new folder for your transcibed files. For the purposes of this guide, we will create a
desktop folder and name it Output. Repeat the process as outlined in step #3. Note that if you installed Dragon
into the default directory and havent moved your user files, there is a good chance that DNS will
antomatically pre-populate the User Location, Name, Vocabulary and Dictation source fields with the correct
information but if you dont like the default choices, you can change them as outlined in step #3.

5. After making your selections, click Ok and exit the Dragon AutoTranscribe Folder Agent to minimize it to the
Taskbar.




Additional Transcription/Recorder Notes

1. The Dragon AutoTranscribe Folder Agent can ONLY work when it is running and Dragon ISNT open.
2. You might consider dropping a shortcut to the Dragon AutoTranscribe Folder Agent into your Windows Startup folder
which is located at C:\Users\(your computer name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup in Windows 7.
3. You can also create numerous new tasks in the the Dragon AutoTranscribe Folder Agent to accommodate multiple
users and additional recorder folders. You can even create multiple output folders.
4. The Dragon AutoTranscribe Folder Agent includes an option to generate dra files to embed into your documents for
random playback of your recordings from within the transcribed richtext files. You will find this feature under the
Dragon AutoTranscribe Folder Agent Agent/Options menu.
5. The process of transcribing a recording is typically 8 - 10 times faster than the speed it was recorded at but downloading
the recordings to your computer should be extremely fast. Once all the files are downloaded, you will see a prompt to
disconnect the recorder (unless you need to charge it).
6. Because the DS-7000/DS-3500 takes a while to boot up, we don't recommend turning it on and off via the plastic power
switch which in our opinion, is the Achilles' heel of this recorder. Unless you are planning on not using your recorder
for at least a week or so, we recommend leaving the power switch in the on position. The 21 hour battery pack is
designed to last a very long time when hibernating which occurs automatically after a few seconds of nonuse.
7. You can tell when NaturallySpeaking has finish transcribing your recordings, via the Dragon AutoTranscribe Folder
Agent, because the recordings will automatically be deleted from the Dictation Module folder A and moved to your
Output folder.
