Free extra Dragon commands for emulating the keyboard cursor or arrow keys
Key commands allow you to enter a keystroke with your voice, as if you had typed the actual key manually on your keyboard.
The keyboard cursor or arrow keys are often used to navigate up and down through our list of files folders, whether its in File Explorer to make a selection or looking for a specific folder when wanting to save or open files in the applications you are using.
Dragon does provide built-in commands to emulate the pressing of the cursor keys. For example, saying “press up arrow”, “press down arrow”, “press left arrow” or , “press right arrow” will result in the respective cursor key being pressed once. However, what if you want to press one of the cursor keys numerous times by voice; well that could become quite tedious and somewhat a bit of a tongue twister.
That’s why we have put together a Dragon Speech Tips tool that will make the process of dictating numerous cursor/arrow key presses so much easier and increase your productivity at the same time.
