What it’s all about …

Welcome to RW Dragon Utilities!

My name is Rüdiger Wilke, I am situated in Germany, and I am a part-time programmer. I have also been a long-term user of the Dragon NaturallySpeaking software which has become an inevitable tool early on in my day-to-day profession.

In around 2010, I started creating add-on utilities for Dragon, exploiting certain functionalities and corners which the software doesn’t provide “as is”. So far, most of those utilities have been shared with people on and off, but now I have decided to collect and publish them.

All the applications gathered here are closely tied to and interacting with Dragon. Being true extensions to Dragon, they require Dragon being installed and used on the system. Therefore, if you are not a user of the Dragon speech recognition software, this site will not be for you.

The utilities cover a wide range of targets, and each has its individual concept and usage. They may be assistive, analytical, or maintaining, as an example, and all in all they are there to enhance your experience with the Dragon software.

For an overview, it is suggested to go the Products page where each application is briefly described. From there, you can go to various sections explaining all the details for every program, as well as showing how to get them.

Every application can be tested free-of-charge for 15 days. If you find it useful and want to go on using it, you will need to purchase a license key to activate the software permanently. Pricing details are also given .

For any questions related to installing and activating the programs, refer to the Install Guide section.

Finally, you can always reach out to me and Leave Me a Message here.

Thanks for you interest!
