Dragon is a product that helps users get more done in less time. Being able to dictate and have the words appear on screen almost instantaneously is its main feature, something that tends to overshadow its many other time-saving features. Being an author or screenwriter, the software actually makes a lot of sense. When it comes to storytelling you want to be able to connect with audiences using language that feels organic. This is especially true for screenwriting where words need to be comfortable enough to say and make sense for people to use in ordinary dialogue. If you say these words, they’ll come across as more natural and help create the world the characters live and breathe in. It takes a while to adjust to the right register with Dragon but this speed of deploying words typically makes it easier to write your way out of writer’s block. “Just write” is advice to get out of a rut but being able to just talk seems a lot easier. Dreaming up these worlds can be much easier to do with your eyes closed and Dragon also allows authors to free up their hands by simply dictating.
