How to Add a List of New Words to Dragon Medical Practice Edition

July 26, 2012 - admin

One of the easiest ways to add a list of new words in Dragon Medical Practice Edition is with the tool “Learn from specific documents”.
 
This tool can be accessed from the DragonBar in two ways.

  • On the DragonBar select:
    • Vocabulary > Learn from specific documents
  • On the DragonBar select:
    • Help > Improve my accuracy
    • In the Accuracy Center select the link “Learn from specific documents”

First, enter the list of new words in a Microsoft Word document.
 
Then open the tool “Learn from specific documents”.

Keep the default settings and click next.
 
Click Add Document and browse to Word document that has the new words.

You can add additional documents if needed.
 
When finished click Next

Dragon will analyze the new words list.

When finished click Next.
 
In the next window you will see the list of words that will be added to the vocabulary.
 
You can deselect a word if you do not want to add it to the vocabulary.

When finished click Next.
 
In the next window you have the option to provide a pronunciation for each word.
 
Select the word and click Train.

When finished click Next.
 
In this window Dragon will adapt to the writing style of the document.
 
If the document contains only a list of new words the adaptation finishes very quickly.

Click Next.
 
The final window is the Summary.

Click Finish.
 
You can see the new words that were added to the vocabulary.
 
On the DragonBar select:

  • Vocabulary > Open vocabulary editor

In the Vocabulary Editor expand the Display dropdown selection and select “Custom words only”.
