I believe in dragons – at least the Dragon Naturally Speaking® software on my laptop and the accompanying app on my iPhone®. I’m so in love with my Dragons that I can’t imagine life without them. If you’ve ever had a “eureka” thought but no paper to write it down, you’ll appreciate the mobile Dragon. The app allows me to dictate up to a minute of pure brilliant thought or instructions, save them and then, if necessary, edit or add onto them. Once I’ve completed my “voice memo” or idea for the day, I’ll email it to myself or the responsible staff member and have an electronic paper trail to keep them (or me) on track.
As a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant the mobile app gives you the ability to send your own brilliant thoughts to yourself or to an attorney-client as an email or a text message, or even to simply update your Facebook status about the new attorney-client you’ve just acquired. The beauty of the Dragon is now, no matter where you are, you can record the “big idea” that you know won’t last until you find paper. You’ll never again have to worry about reading your scribbled handwriting or decoding the cocktail napkin notes from the 2-martini lunch with your legal nurse consulting mastermind group.
The Dragon software for your computer is an expanded version that allows you to dictate reports, letters, memos or just about any other document. It does require a headset which tethers you to your computer (a minus). You also have to train your Dragon, a more complex procedure than training your Dragon app but once trained you’ll love it.
I highly recommend the Dragon app to any Certified Legal Nurse Consultant with an iPhone. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without a Dragon at hand.
Success Is Inside!
