Has he tried MathTalk with Scientific notebook + Dragon?

You might reach out to Nancilu McClellan at Metroplex Voice Computing for more direct advice & suggestions in re the use of MathTalk + LaTeX and other coding languages.

It’s also possible to load vocabulary lists (plus coding strings) into DNS vocabulary and train it to recognize your (student’s) voice.

Hi all,

Since I'm not at all a Mac user, I'm reaching out to beg for you to share some of your collective knowledge. Have a student whose is losing manual dexterity. He is working on dual doctoral degrees (physics & mathematics). As such, he works a lot with LaTeX and some other coding software. He has been using Dragon, but is finding it cumbersome.

He has investigated VoiceCode software which works along with Dragon as well as the SmartNav software and hardware.

If anyone has used these, would you share your experience? Are there other suggestions we should investigate?
