Tutorial #16: Switching Vocabularies in Dragon

Building off of the previous tutorial on adding additional vocabularies to your profile, this video shows you how to switch between those vocabularies within your profile. 

Switching Vocabularies

If you have more than one vocabulary attached to your profile it is essential that you can switch them on the fly for when you are writing personal notes with Dragon one minute and the next minute writing patient charts. To switch between vocabularies:

  1. 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

  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 has fully loaded, click on "Vocabulary" on the Dragon Bar

  4. Click on "Open Recent Vocabulary" and then choose the vocabulary you wanted to switch to
