Nuance (formerly ScanSoft), Dragon's vendor claims that the latest
version of DNS--version 9--requires no training.
Note that I say, "claims." I have not used v. 9 yet myself.

Does anyone know if it's possible to *create* a training script for

I'm transcribing a recorded lecture from an instructor, and thought I'd
give Dragon a whirl -- even if I only get 50% recognition, I'm ahead of
starting from scratch. The problem is that I doubt I can get the
instructor to leave her grading long enough to create a profile. I'd
like to use a transcript we've already created to train the program.

Is this even *remotely* possible?
