Dragon SpeechPack for Designers enables users to control popular design software applications by using their voice, which makers Nuance says makes it easier to unleash their creativity and increase their productivity. Dragon SpeechPack for Designers is Windows-only and costs around £85 plus VAT.
Dragon SpeechPack for Designers enables graphic design professionals to command and control tools including including Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Contribute, After Effects, Premiere Pro and more. By using speech commands in conjunction with a keyboard, Dragon SpeechPack for Designers is designed to help users speed through routine tasks and improve design efficiency by reducing manual keyboard control, and makes it easier for them to transfer their thoughts and developments to their designs.
Dragon SpeechPack for Designers aims to provide simplified design control, as it enables users to alternate between using the mouse to select design functions, and speech to select the tools, filters and commands. As well as the productivity gains, Nuance also suggests that it could also help to reduce eye-strain; users spend less time refocusing, particularly when selecting options from the tool bar menu. A further benefit is that using speech as an interface lessens the need to use the keyboard and mouse, which can help reduce RSI-related symptoms in the future.
