Dragon Virtual User Group Meetings (DVUG)

No Registration Required

The DVUG meetings are open to all Kaiser employees who use NaturallySpeaking or are interested in using NaturallySpeaking. The meetings are moderated by an EXAQ trainer and will include short training sessions on topics of interest and provide time for questions and discussions of problems and solutions by the participants.
Schedule: Starting May, 2009 the meetings are normally scheduled twice a year on the 3th Thursday of the month starting at 12:45 and will run for about 45 minutes during the normal lunch break.   Additional meetings may be schduled in between as the need arises.  Please register for the next meeting if you would like to be notified of any additional meetings or of changes to the meeting shedule.
To attend a session simply click on any of the Join links on this page.  If this is the first time you have attended a Users Group Session you should join the session about 10 minutes early as you may be asked to download and install a WebEx component.  The component installation normally takes just a few minutes and has been approved by Kaiser IT.  Once you have joined the session, a screen will be displayed showing the toll free teleconference number to call and a user ID to use when joining the teleconference for the session.  Dial the number, then enter the ID when prompted.
