Handheld Microphones for Dragon Medical & Professional

Benefits of Handheld Microphones

Brief Bursts of Dictation

Handheld microphones are efficient if you dictate for less than a few minutes multiple times throughout the day.

In between activities, simply pick up the microphone, dictate, and then lay the microphone down.

Programmable Buttons

Programming buttons on a handheld microphone accomplishes a variety of tasks rapidly when using Dragon.

Quickly move between fields, execute a complex macro or voice command, and so much more.

No Need for a Headset

For a variety of reasons, you may not wish to wear a headset on top of your head.

A handheld microphone may be more comfortable or even reminiscent of previously used dictation devices.
