This has been my experience as well. Most students do not want to bother with advanced features such as creating their own dictionaries, setting up multiple voice prints for various situations, working with digital play back devices, etc. They want to run through the training, do a bit a practice, and start to work. Usually, this is sufficient for them to be productive. I always provide them with a list of voice commands (we use the pro version), but most simply use the mouse, if possible.

I too would be interested to know what information is covered in the course. I'd also like to know what information you would be planning to share.

To be honest, I think Dragon is so easy to use that I have never done
more than spend a few hours training a student to use it. I'd never
heard of a class to actually teach a large number to use it. It is
pretty easy once you've sat down in front of it.

What kinds of things are being taught in the class?
