Dragon Medical One FAQ

Below are a variety of common questions asked (and answers) regarding Dragon Medical One, from pre-sales questions, compatibilities, to support from Speakeasy Solutions. If you do not find an answer, contact us.

Dragon Medical One Trial/Demo

Can I try Dragon Medical One before buying?

Absolutely. Speakeasy Solutions provides a free one-week trial of DMO — no commitment. You may select from a self-guided demo or Speakeasy Solutions assisted demo.

Simply contact us and mention that you wish a self-guided demo of DMO and we will send you an email with instructions.

If you wish an assisted demo (the most popular choice), please either contact us by telephone (1-888-964-9109 ext. 102) or schedule an appointment online (Category — Pre-Sales Consultation; Service — Dragon Medical One Trial | no charge (30 minutes) REMOTE). This takes approximately 30 minutes for set up and overview.

What happens after my trial is over and I subscribe?

After your trial of Dragon Medical One, the trial installation should be removed. A new installation is performed based on your subscription information.

If you are using the PowerMic Mobile, your profile needs to be adjusted to account for the subscription.

Installation & Usability of Dragon Medical One

If Dragon Medical One is in the cloud, why does an application need to be installed on my computer?

The majority of the processing and the entirety of your Dragon user profile is maintained on the Canadian cloud servers. 

The application installed on the computer is quite small and takes only minutes (based on Internet speed) to install.

What platforms can Dragon Medical One be installed on?

Full Windows operating systems only.

Can Dragon Medical One be installed on a Mac computer?

Only if running parallels or Boot Camp with a Windows operating system. Allocate at least 8 GB of RAM to the Windows OS.

Can Dragon Medical One be installed on a tablet computer?

Only if running a full Windows operating system.

Can Dragon Medical One be used on my smartphone?

Not quite. While your smartphone may be used as a microphone, DMO cannot be installed on your smartphone.

Will Dragon Medical One work in my EMR?

DMO works in all EMRs to one degree or another.

Provided you are using Google Chrome, Opera, or Microsoft Edge, DMO transcribes directly into web-based EMRs with full text control (the ability to edit and correct text by voice, as well as use autotext commands with voice fields).

The very rare locally installed EMR may or may not offer full text control. Please contact us for more information.

If direct transcription with full text control is not available (as is the case with an EMR across Citrix or Remote Desktop) you have the option of using DMO’s Dictation Box for full text control or dictating directly into the EMR with basic text control.

Software & Hardware Specifications

What are the specifications to run Dragon Medical One?

Please view the requirements here.

Do I need to have access to the Internet to use Dragon Medical One?

Yes. As your Dragon user profile is maintained in the cloud, you must have a reliable Internet connection to use DMO.

It is our hope that this limitation is addressed in the near future for those clients who do not have reliable Internet access.

Can Dragon Medical One be used in a virtualized environment?


Dragon Medical One can be deployed in Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop, Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and VMware Horizon View/RDSH virtualized environments.

For more information on supported virtualized environments, contact us.

Features of Dragon Medical One

What vocabulary topics are available in Dragon Medical One?

  • General Medicine
  • Clinical Administration
  • Cardiology
  • Emergency
  • Internal Medicine
  • Mental Health
  • Neurology
  • Obstetrics and Gynecology
  • Oncology
  • Orthopedics
  • Pathology

What do I do if my specialty is not in the list of vocabularies?

Use the vocabulary that is closest to your specialty. The General Medicine vocabulary also suffices.

As a side note, for nonmedical dictation (personal correspondence, email, and so on) use the Clinical Administration vocabulary.

What web browsers are compatible with Dragon Medical One?

Google Chrome. With some easy adjustments DMO functions within Opera and Microsoft Edge with the same efficacy as it does Google Chrome.

DMO has a Google Chrome web extension, enabling transcription directly into almost all web hosted EMRs running on Google Chrome.

I need to work in Mozilla Firefox or another application that is not 100% compatible with Dragon Medical One. Can I dictate at the cursor point without having to use the Dictation Box?

Yes, you can. While you do not have full text control (the ability to edit or correct the text by voice in addition to using text commands with voice fields), DMO does allow for transcription at the cursor point within any application with excellent accuracy.

How accurate is Dragon Medical One?

Extraordinarily so. The accent support is like nothing we have seen before. DMO learns much faster than its predecessor, Dragon Medical Practice Edition.

A quality microphone and leveraging various features and settings within DMO impact the accuracy.

Can I modify the vocabulary in Dragon Medical One?

Yes. Easily add new words or phrases. Delete and train words and phrases. Even create clever shortcuts to produce a moderate amount of text.

Can I create macros with Dragon Medical One?

You most certainly can. There are 2 types of voice commands: Text based and computer control.

Text based commands are either straightforward swaths of text or repetitious text punctuated with voice fields for defaults or free-form dictation throughout. The latter being reminiscent of a form.

Step-by-step commands are created to perform a variety of computer functions within and outside your EMR. Taking advantage of step-by-step commands enables you to work more quickly, performing repetitious tasks in a fraction of the time then it would ordinarily with mouse and keyboard.

Can I transfer my vocabulary and commands from Dragon Medical Practice Edition into Dragon Medical One?

Yes, you can. After the extraction of your custom words and commands from your DMPE user profile, we import these into your DMO user profile.
