[Athen] Learning Arabic with AT?

You will need to purchase a license of Dragon in Arabic (Saudi Arabia). It will not work on the English version without a ton of extra work.

It may be best to reach out to the Arabic department to see if they have readers and scribes who would be willing to work.

This may not be necessary, but I would also suggest that the student create a separate account that they only use for Arabic. That way they will not teach Dragon to recognize words they don't use in English. They could "save as" their current profile to create the new one with all the settings in place.

I have a college student who uses speech-to-text (Dragon NaturallySpeaking) and text-to-speech (Kurzweil 3000) who plans on taking Arabic in the fall. The student is physically unable to write, and relies on a combination of speech-to-text and aides to complete assignments.

I would greatly appreciate some recommendations for helping this student access and complete the course!

Thank you,
