|The Session "A" Group
Training provides an introduction to the
basics of using NaturallySpeaking at Kaiser. The Group Training
divided into two 1.5-hour Sessions: Session A Part 1, and Session A
Part 2. Both
sessions are intended to have time at the end for questions and answers
from participants. The Group Training sessions are intended to
allow the attendees to get started properly with NaturallySpeaking,
minimize "start up frustration", and to obtain maximum benefit
from the one-on-one training to follow.
- Part 1:
Covers the technology and its capabilities and limitations. The
core skills needed for dictation are covered as well as some of the
more common problems encountered during voice profile creation and
initial usage. Completing Part 1 should allow the user to
successfully create a voice profile, identify if there are any problems
with the system and to use NaturallySpeaking to accomplish the basic
tasks necessary for successful dictation including: dictation
strategies, corrections, revisions, document navigation, capitalization
- Part 2:
Introduces more advanced topics for increasing productivity and
accuracy. The Vocabulary Editor is discussed as a tool to address
problem words, acronyms, and commonly used phrases. The Command
Browser is discussed as a tool for identifying commands and maintaining
custom commands. General strategies for using NaturallySpeaking
with Kaiser Applications such as HealthConnect, eChart, TRRS, CoPath,
CIPS and email are discussed. The basic productivity tools of
the Kaiser Voice Commands (KVC)
are introduced for those who have them.
should create their voice profiles and the tutorial included with the
to starting Part 1. This will reduce the probability that there
will be IT problem to resolve after the training. If the
participant runs into any problems using the software, they should
simply wait for the class before continuing. If participants have
had the opportunity to create a voice profile prior to completing Part
1, they should create it and start using NaturallySpeaking as soon
after the class as possible to minimize "Knowledge Evaporation."
any event, it is recommended that the user have some experience using
NaturallySpeaking prior to taking Part 2.
