[Scripting for Dragon NaturallySpeaking 7, by Larry V. Allen]

Following is a list of commands (macros) described in Scripting for Dragon NaturallySpeaking 7. You do not need to type or dictate the text of the macros as they are available for download below.

In most cases, the downloaded macro starts with the word “sample” which does not appear in the book. Where the book has two versions of the same macro, the second version in the downloaded macros starts with the word “example.”

PagesCommand/Macro Name
18-20sample mole removal risks
21sample mole risk insert
22-23sample mole removal surgery
23-26sample mole removal surgery <1to5>

Note: on Page 26, the text omits the word “removal” in its examples of what to say
31-33sample open sales tax

Note: on many systems, the line to open Calculator will need to change. The example will work on many Windows-98 and Windows-ME systems without change. Windows-XP users will find calc.exe in the Windows/system32 directory.
