Dragon will work with Excel. If the person has a printer that will print on
various paper sizes, then you could print to whatever size suited the
individual's needs.

Hi, everybody
Perhaps you already had discuss the following ; if so, Would you mind
sending me the information?
If not, then, Could we discuss feasible solutions to the problem?

A client with mobility impairment /partial paralysis of the fingers uses
Dragon Naturally Speaking -version 10 preferred- to enter data in a
This person is presently working in a government office in accounting after
completing successfully the face to face and hands-on interview process.
During the practical exam, the person was allowed to enter the data in Excel
using DNS.

Now, the person is working the numbers from various spreadsheets and need a
print-out to attach to the reports to show the math. Printing a whole letter
sized sheet is out of the question, as they would go through way too much

1) Is there a calculator with print-out/till-tape capabilities that will
work with Dragon?.  Programs like MathPad or MathTalk do work with DNS, but
they would still have the problem of printing a whole page. I imagine it
would be a mobility challenge to work the separate totals in columns and
then cut them.
2) Is there a computer compatible printer which could work with
"calculator-type" paper roll (about 3" wide)? I remember years ago we use to
print labels which came in a 3" roll directly from the computer... but I
think that the printer was a dot matrix.

I will appreciate your ideas. Thanks and have an excellent day.
