DRAGON QUICK GUIDE
Creating a Profile

Before you can start using Dragon you will need to create a profile that is custom and specific to you. The following guide takes you through profile creation. It is important to never share your profile as it will confuse Dragon and reduce the performance.

Dragon will automatically ask to create a profile if there isn't one already in the software. Steps 1-6 show you how to begin manually creating a new profile. Step 7 onwards applies for the automatic and manual creation of the profile.

  1. Launch Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4, 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, you will be greeted by a window that will walk you through creating your profile

  3. Next, enter a name for the new profile and then click next

  4. Choose your region and vocabulary you'd like to use, and then click next. (If you need to use more than one vocabulary, please select one of the ones you will need. A later guide will show you how to add a second vocabulary)

  5. Choose your accent and then click next

  6. Choose your dictation source (Mic) and then click next. (If your newly plugged in microphone does not appear please restart your computer and begin the process again
