NaturallySpeaking Session "A" Group Training Sessions
The Session "A" Group Training provides an introduction to the basics of using NaturallySpeaking at Kaiser.  The Group Training is 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 and numbers.

  • 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.

Ideally participants should create their voice profiles and the tutorial included with the software prior 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 not 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."  In any event, it is recommended that the user have some experience using NaturallySpeaking prior to taking Part 2.
