Playing Back a Previously Recorded Dictation
Another helpful feature in Dragon is the "Play That" command. This command will replay the recorded audio of you dictating a certain selection of text. This is very useful for correcting a document that has been previously recorded.
To use these commands, you can do the following:
Launch Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2, 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
Once Dragon opens, either select a profile to load or, if you have only one profile, wait for Dragon to load your profile
Dictate some text using your microphone into your EMR or word processing software or transcribe a previously recorded file
Highlight the portion of your dictated text you want read back to you
Say "Play That" to begin the read back of the text
You can also click on the double arrows next to "Help" on the Dragon Bar to expand your Dragon Bar's features
From the expanded dragon bar, you can then click on the "playback" button
