This article details how to use Adaptation. Adaptation helps to improve profile accuracy.

Note: You must have a Dragon profile configured in order to do Adaptation please follow the guide here.

Dragon will listen to the audio file to carry out two different types of profile adaptation:

  1. Acoustic: Listens to the quality of the audio to understand the type of environment the user is recording in.
  2. Vocabulary: Listens to the audio file and compares it with the corrections that were made to learn about the way the speaker dictates.

Once a file has been corrected, the file is automatically added to the Adaptation Waiting List.
