Benefits of online training

  • Training by a Nuance accredited Dragon trainer
  • Affordable – no added VAT
  • The cost is lower as we don’t have to bill you for travel to your location
  • If you take the online training option, your training session(s) is recorded for your future reference. This is a real benefit compared to traditional training!
  • You can undertake the training in your own time – an hour here and there – so no need to book a block of time off work
  • You receive a detailed training manual and ‘command ‘cheat sheet’
  • You receive some free post -training screencast videos on editing and correcting

Live online training – how does it work?

  • We initially call you on your phone
  • You click on a web link in order for our PC’s to be connected via our secure, encrypted remote desktop system
  • Once our PC’s are connected, we will switch the audio to VoIP (voice over internet) and disconnect our phone call
  • Once the training starts, we record your training
  • We toggle backwards and forwards between our PC (to demonstrate) and yours (for you to practise)
  • After the training, you will be sent a screencast video of your training session(s) – this gives a very handy reference that you can go back to time and time again

Benefits of face to face training

  • We carry out the training at a superb local hotel in scenic North Wales. You get away from the distractions of your workplace
  • Mid session refreshments and lunch are included in the cost

What will you learn?

We recommend the ‘Part I’ course in the left hand column of the table below (shaded green) as a minimum to be serious with Dragon. This takes up to 4 hours. If you are taking the live online training, we would recommend you opt initially for 2 hours training and to decide if you would like the additional 2 hours later. Doing this will ‘get you going’ nicely with Dragon as you will uncover a new way of working.

If you come to us for face to face training, we would recommend the Part I 4 hours which is a half day’s training. If you’d like to be able to voice activate any of the packages in Part II (the right hand column shaded in blue), then some additional training time is required. Taking all of Part II requires an additional 4 hours. But if you only need certain elements in Part II, you may just need 1, 2 or 3 hours. We can discuss your needs and advise what best suits your specific requirements.What is the cost of the training?

The online training is £60 per hour. No VAT is added.

The face to face training is £290 (no VAT is added) for Part I which includes all training materials, refreshments and lunch. If you also want the Part II training or certain elements within Part II, we can estimate the cost for you after discussing your requirements with you.
