Tutorial #20: Switching Your Dictation Source

This video builds upon the previous tutorial on adding a Dictation Source by going over the steps necessary to switch between dictation sources within your Dragon Veterinary profile

Switching Dictation Sources

A dictation source is the tool that you use to create a dictation, be it the PowerMic, a hand-held recording device, a headset, or whatever else you may use. Many Dragon users choose to have multiple dictation sources to meet their needs in every occasion, if this is you and you have more than one dictation source set up with your profile it is important to know how to switch between them while using Dragon.

  1. Launch Dragon Veterinary, if it isn't already open, by double clicking the desktop icon, clicking the icon on the taskbar if present, or by simply opening the start menu in windows and typing in "Dragon Medical Practice Edition," and then pressing enter

  2. Once Dragon opens, either select a profile to load or, if you have only one profile, wait for Dragon to load your profile

  3. Once Dragon is fully loaded, you can then click on "Settings" in the Dragon Bar

  4. Click on "Microphone” then “choose Microphone”

  5. From there select the appropriate Mic and click “Finish”
