Last Updated: 2021-07-16, with a video from SpeechProductivity for smooth scrolling


I have often wished that I could see some video clips of how the masters work with Dragon. By masters, I mean all the long-time guys like Lunis, Lindsay, Edgar, PG, Phil, Tigerfeet, RW, Mark, Mav, Alan, Rob, Quintjin (Natlink, Unimacro, etc.).

 

Is anyone else curious like I am? What do you all think about a thread of short videos that show masters at work with voice? If everyone contributed a couple of 5 minute videos, we would soon have 20 videos to watch and learn from. Cheers, Kevin

 

This thread has become successful and long. Edgar suggested that I edit this first post to collect the links (and short introductions) for easier reference for everyone. If you want to read the conversations, just scroll down and read the whole thread.

 

 

VIDEOS FOR MICROPHONE CONTROL, FLAGS, and RESTARTING DRAGON

 

I would like the first video to be about turning the microphone on and restarting Dragon because that's a critical piece of software. I use SpeechStart; if someone appends a VoiceComputer microphone control video to the thread I will index it here as well.

 

 

 

15 VIDEOS FROM KIM AT REDSTART

 

I would like the second link to be from Kim at Redstart Systems. Her amazing Utter Command system from Windows7 days circa 2007-2009 (DVC scripts + DLLs + superbly efficient syntax models + *extensive* documentation) is awesome. As far as I know, the depth and scope of her system has no equal, even today. It has not been updated for Windows 10, but most of it still works. She has kindly made the DVC script part of her system open source on Github. Here are 15 educational videos for interested voice users.

VIDEOS FOR DRAGON UNFRIENDLY APPLICATIONS

 

Dragon Capture. The first program in this section is the amazing Dragon Capture. This program *is completely different* than anything else out there for working with Dragon unfriendly applications. RW does a flawless job at demonstrating the app and how it should be used. I copied it from another thread on the forum here.

 

The video explains basic concept, options, and what it can do. This video is flawless and amazing.

DragonCapture Basics & Main Options Tutorial Video 

 

SpeechProductivity Utilities. Next up are a pile of videos from Rob. Many of his dictation box and editor apps are useful for working with Dragon unfriendly applications. Rob has a ton of experience at making professional videos.

 

This video shows how you can have full select-and-say control in Dragon-unfriendly apps by pulling the app text into one of the SpeechProductivity tools, modifying it, and pasting it back into the unfriendly app. This video makes it look easy.

https://youtu.be/k2iz7OieUcA

 

This video shows full select-and-say control for searching in popular browsers. As always, Rob makes it look easy. And his videos are in a league by themselves. ??

(2021-05-05) https://youtu.be/SYSC_gagmqc

 

This video shows how to smooth-scroll through long browser pages or documents with ease. You can easily adjust the scrolling speed and direction by voice to make your reading life more comfortable.

VIDEOS FOR SCRIPTING

 

KnowBrainer. KnowBrainer is probably the king of apps for scripting for Dragon. It provides a verbal way of defining new scripting commands. Mark shows how easy it is to do in this video. In just a few utterances, he creates a new command to send keystrokes.

VIDEOS FOR PROGRAMMING

 

Edgar and Mark are the two masters who produce programming videos here, even though Rob and Tom have started to produce some excellent programming tools recently.

 

The first video is Edgar demonstrating his StatementConstructor program to generate C# code as he speaks. the demo Gods have been fairly nice to him in these videos - almost everything worked as expected and very few verbal repeats were required. Here's a link to the original post thread for more details.

 

Edgar's "StatementConstructor1.0.0.3" video:
https://youtu.be/F-5jwuGHZdc

 

Edgar's "the What Can I Say dialog" video:
https://youtu.be/s_d1D66gCnI

 

Rob's official Plates video. (Plates is a generator for tem-PLATES by Tom and Rob). I hacked a video together showing Plates, and my video was so bad that it motivated Rob to make an official video that was vastly better. :-) Here it is. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-yudLPXrjE

 

Here is how Mark does custom IntelliSense and snippets. He has an extensive set of snippets in a SQL database, and runs one Dragon to fetch the snippets out. The snippets can be browsed on the web through his Blazor interface that he wrote for them. (2021-05-11)
https://youtu.be/B_WqibEIFrc

 

Mark's GitHub repository (has the scripts shown in the video above, plus other tools).

https://github.com/Mark-Phillipson/DragonScripts

 

Here is how Mark clicks anywhere on the screen. He has paper labels around the edge of his monitors and can say NATO alphabet words to get within 50 pixels of the target on the first try.

OTHER (OLD) VIDEOS FOR PROGRAMMING FROM THE NET

 

These videos were listed on the helpful Vocola.Net Programming by Voice FAQ posted by alexander on this thread below. http://vocola.net/programming-by-voice-FAQ.html. So many of these demos use weird words that there must be something to the idea.

 

(2007, 9:00), The original VoiceCode demo in Emacs (audio is missing in the beginning)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7f9Iik3q58

 

(2013, 5:08), Jason Veldicott, showing his system for matching utterances against a 57,000 word library of Java symbols.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIJBl5llcQ4

 

(2013, 28:00), Tavis Rudd, 2013, did a famous video on Python programming in Emacs. He is famous for his weird words (blurp snore zing slap, etc) for editing command names.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SkdfdXWYaI

 

(2013, 15:00), Ashley Veniello, using a console recognition/driver app to send keys to the Vim editor.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEBMlXRjhZY

 

(2014, 1:49) Nils Klarlund’s demo of his ShortTalk system in Emacs. Weird words again (ghin ting aipper word skaip). But he manages to send an email in Emacs.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXOBKlJ5Oms

 

(2015, 1:30), David Conway (the Castor developer) shows how to record a voice sequence and play it back like an Emacs keyboard macro. He uses weird words too. (que cut quotes drop right boom que que cut back delete) But it works.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWDtsrIQ1pc&list=PLV6JPhkq1x8LHu02YefhUU9rXiB2PK8tc

 

(2020, 0:59), James from HandsFreeCoding.org shows his OCR and gaze-tracking Python system (that plugs into Dragonfly) and his voice to do some editing.

Yes, this will be great and I will like to see something like this also. Sometimes seeing it in a video makes people aware more what Dragin is capable of.
Over to you, experts please!

I was inspired by Mark’s posting not have video on how he moves across the screen with his grid pasted to his monitor. Thanks Mark!

 

I thought I would keep the trend going by posting a video of my own. In this video I show how I jump to a folder using scripts that I just got working this morning. I have full use of my hands, keyboard, and mouse, so those are not issues for me. I am trying to use voice to become more productive than I can using the normal keyboard and mouse actions.

 

The first part of the video shows how I jump to a folder in a tab in the file manager in an intelligent way. The software figures out if a tab holding the folder exists, creates one if it does not, and jumps to one if one does exist. I'm using a technique of "typing" in a pathname to the filemanager to jump to a location. (I learned that method from Alan Cantor some time ago. Thanks Alan! It works great.)

 

The second part of the video shows how I activate applications and move them to named locations on the screen (“front” is such a location). I named the locations because I always like my applications in the same place on the screen.

 

The third part of the video shows some Microsoft Word up operations that I use regularly to set the styles of document headings and position images beside the text in the document. The video shows how the software resizes the image, gives it the right attributes, moves it to the right and border, and draws a border around the image. In addition, the video shows how scripts can distribute a series of images vertically to make them look nice in the document.

 

For the record, my code is spread across Dragon scripting, Microsoft VBA, C#, DOS batch files, and some scripting within other applications (KnowBrainer, Adobe, or XYPlorer as in this video). It’s a hodge-podge of scripts.

 

I hope the video is interesting to you!

 

(Sorry to say, but this link no longer works. Posting the two videos here exceeded my monthly bandwidth limit on Screencast within a couple of days, so I deleted them to repost on YouTube. Unfortunately, I had never saved them on my local machine (I upload straight from the video tool), so they're gone forever. (sigh). Maybe I'll post revised versions if there's enough interest.)

I hope you'll cut me some slack! I've never tried to make a recording like this before (audio & video) and I had to find some software to do the job! After trying out a few I eventually settled on SpaceX for the recording and OpenShot to do editing (although both of these clips are unedited). If I were ever to do this again I would script it out with scenes and dialog! Both clips were created entirely hands-free; DragonUsage1 is a second take and DragonUsage2 required 8 takes to get as far as I got (and I'm not extremely happy with it).


The first video (DragonUsage1 - 7:21 long) shows examples of some common tasks in my daily routine - using Chrome to surf the web, Visual Studio to edit code and Notepad for plain text creation (I don't do much styled text anymore so did not show the use of Word nor OpenOffice Writer). Cory J (my Correct That replacement) is also featured at the end using Notepad for dictation and correction. Here is the link in my Dropbox:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/qxp1e5x45r7jb28/DragonUsage1.mp4?dl=0


The second video (DragonUsage2 - 6:17 long) focuses on using Explorer++ to navigate file system. I very briefly demonstrate how it can be driven by voice and a few of the features that set it apart from Windows Explorer. Here is the link in my Dropbox:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/gejoh6q3j2eqep4/DragonUsage2.mp4?dl=0


Throughout both I use my Mouse Grid replacements (Screen Grid, Monitor Grid #, & Window Grid) for mouse positioning.

++10 Edgar! Wow, your videos amazed me. They were exactly what I was hoping for when I posted this thread. I'm sure your videos will expand minds for a long time into the future because you show how easy it is to move around and get things done. I'm almost totally useless in Visual Studio except for a few SendKeys scripts to fire a few menu items, whereas you've got error windows open on multiple monitors and can jump around easily. I'll have to investigate your "letters" command and get myself to memorize an alphabet when I get the time. Your 4-box video format to show your three monitors was educational too - I've never seen that done before. (I just used SnagIt to make my video.) Thank you for the visual on your grid tool too - seeing it in action has way more punch than just reading about it in the forum. Thank you so much for your contribution! You're clearly one of the masters.

 

PS. I searched for "spacex video recording tool" but only got Elon's rockets. Do you have a link for the SpaceX and video editing tool that you mention? Thank you

"SpaceX" - that was either a speak-o or just more old age creeping in… I meant to say "ShareX" it's open source and on GitHub:
https://github.com/ShareX/ShareX/releases/tag/v13.2.1

For my simple needs I can operate it entirely hands-free. In the default mode it has a minor (but possibly surmountable without changing the code) problem with keyboard shortcuts - it inserts global shortcuts (not application-specific) to start recording a video, make a screen grab and make a window capture (start recording a video is "shift print screen"). Even when the application is NOT running, this overrides ALL the OS-built-in "print screen" varieties. If I'm going to continue to use this application I will need to circumvent that by changing these shortcuts so that they do not interfere with my HIGHLY used macros which make use of the OS-built-in varieties. I also do not like the fact that they are not application-specific and work even when ShareX has not been started. On my 1920x1080 monitor the application’s interface font is way too small - once I get the application compiling that will be the second thing I address. If I go any further the third thing I would address would be to drastically modify the GUI so that it is voice-actuation friendly.

I'm probably not really a "master". You might have heard of the expression "Jack-of-all-trades, master of none" - that, or "dilettante" might better describe me. I'm 70 years old and mental challenges, that used to be trivial to overcome, now require some effort. Twenty years ago I might well have been a "master" in a number of trades - including programming - but now I find myself spending more time reading reference material to remind myself "how to" than actually writing productive code.

Hi Edgar, I'm only a few years behind you, and I know the feeling well of spending time reading my old notes and references to remember how to do something. I think a person just gets so much knowledge in their head over the years that the brain starts flushing it from RAM to disk to make room for current information. As best I can, that's why I document my code and dictate notes into Word to make reloading it into my head easier.


Thank you for the ShareX link. ShareX records multiple monitors at once, yes? And then did you chop and edit your three monitors into the 4-cell grid manually, or did OpenShot somehow do that automatically? I thought the 4-cell display of 4 monitors was very helpful.

How to use the multi-caret functionality in Visual Studio.

 

This is one command that works better by voice than it would by keyboard.

 

The command name is:

 

Select Matching <1to20>

 

The code is as follows:

 

Sub Main

Dim integerCounter as Integer

For integerCounter = 1 to Val(ListVar1)

 SendKeys "+%."

 Wait 0.1

Next

End Sub

 

Application:

Microsoft Visual Studio

 

YouTube video:

Thanks Mark

Hi Mark, that tip was great! You made it look so easy - "left select" and "camel processName" - much easier than typing, I think. (FYI, your YouTube video audio is very low - I had to crank up my volume a lot to hear you.)

I tried a small handful of recorders; some (like ShareX) record "all or nothing" in the way of monitors. Others allow you to pick and choose or only allow you to record the Primary monitor. It's not always easy from the review blurbs to tell what any given application does in this regard. In the case of ShareX it records the entire "desktop" which Windows defines as a rectangular region just large enough to encompass all attached monitors (whether they are powered on or not). In my case I have 3 monitors, all the same resolution (1920x1080, all at 100% scaling) arranged:
2 | 1
3

where 1 is primary, 2 is secondary and 3 is tertiary. Unfortunately, Windows includes that region below the primary monitor, to the right of the tertiary monitor, as part of the "desktop". In an old map this would be marked "Here be dragons!". It is quite possible to move the mouse into that region and windows often seem to end up down there "accidentally". It's even possible to arrange her monitors (virtually) so that they do not line up - neither horizontally nor vertically - the only requirement is that any given monitor must have at least some tiny common border area with some other monitor.

As for OpenShot - it ended up being a real nightmare, causing massive conflicts with Dragon. I ended up having to uninstall it. Windows 8 came with a built-in video editor - lightweight but which worked just fine. As I recall, Microsoft stop distributing it; but it, or something like it, should be available.

Here is a short video that shows how I enter data into an Excel spreadsheet for my time log. I used several homebrew commands to enter the text and automatically tab between cells. Some commands emit the dictation entitled case, some with leading case, and some with no special casing at all.

Naturally, because it is a demo, there are a few errors and misrecognitions!

One of the interesting things is that this video shows chained commands in action.

The benefit of chained commands is that you do not have to wait around for Dragon to recognize or execute your first command before you issue a second command. In this video, I issue four commands that are chained together.

The downside of chained commands is that if you botch any one of the commands (which I do), the whole utterance must be repeated.

I catch the incoming text, parse it on the comma/comma boundaries, then loop over the list of commands and dispatch them one at a time. Of course, there are a zillion Dragon scripting/C#/ExcelVBA details within that simple structure.

That is an awesome idea. I would also like to see some very brief basic videos on how people do useful everyday things using voice and all the other programs like Knowbrainer, Speech productivity, DragonCapture etc.

It would be good if a new category was created called something like how "I use voice". For example, I am an online university instructor. I wouldn't mind doing a simple video on how I use speech programs to post and respond to student postings. 

Just a thought.

I am for sure not an expert and I apologize this took so long. This is a basic video of how I use Dragon and in this application Speech Productivity to teach an online class discussion board segment.

Hi Gary, thank you for your video. I know that the SP Pro dictation box is awesome, and you showed a wonderful use of the automatic read back feature. I know from experience that you can often hear grammatical errors even when you cannot see them.

Thanks for your comment. Speech productivity has always been the best way to dictate, see and edit. But, that ability to transfer and read at the same time makes it a killer app if you are doing alot of text box inputting.I also use it for speed grading. That means I dictate into the SP all in one box and that becomes the student comment on their gradebook. If you need to be 1000% confident that what you wanted to write is what they see, the SP box is awesome.
