Use Dragon Pad to dictate text and then cut and paste it into your word processor or into the online discussion board for your online art class. It's a great way to begin your thoughts flowing before submitting your final draft. You can even do research online. Just dictate commands and search words. Do you have a term report for an art history course and need to cite sources? This can be tedious but Dragon Naturally Speaking makes it a breeze.
