Dragon Dictation & OmniFocus
Is anyone using Dragon Dictation for the Mac (not Dragon Dictation for the iPhone) with OF?

I've recently ordered Dragon Dictation for the Mac, and I am anxious to try it out. One application for it that I think would be really productive would be adding and modifying OF projects, groups, actions, etc. by voice. I expect DD will arrive next week, so I thought I'd ask here now if anyone is using it.

I use it for emails.

It's fun to say "send email" and it working!

I bet you could customise it

I received it yesterday, but only had a few minutes to train it and try it out on a short note. It recognizes my voice really very well, so if I could get it to work with OF, that would be great.

ATTN Devs: Dragon Mobile SDK now available for developers

Very cool. This would be a great feature for OF mobile (iPad and iPhone).

We do have a feature request open on this - interested parties should email the [EMAIL=""]support ninjas[/EMAIL] and let them know that they'd like to see this added. (It also helps to let us know which editions of the app you'd like to see this in - Mac, iPhone, or iPad.)

Thanks for the help!

GOT IT!......almost
I just bought Dictate last night and haven't got it trained yet, but Try this.

Under the Dragon Dictate Menus select Tools > Commands.

Create a new user-defined commend. For example.

Command Name: New Task
Command Description:
Context: Dragon Dictate
Type: Keystroke (I entered the keystroke for my Omnifocus quick entry ^⌘space)

Start your mic up and say "New Task".

It now opens the quick entry dialog. Now I just have to train it so it'll enter the rest! :)

Ok. Got it working now. :)

Set up a user defined command as I listed above.

In my case I speak "New Task" and the Omnifocus quick entry opens up.

I speak what my new task is then say "Press Save".

TaDa! A new Omnifocus task without ever touching the keyboard or mouse.
