Dragon Medical One Auto-texts
Auto-text commands are custom voice commands for inserting specific text into a document. Use Auto-text commands for content you re-use frequently in your documents. They save time and effort and reduce errors.
Typical uses include signatures, frequently typed addresses, and repeated text blurbs such as normal patient status notes. Auto-texts and templates refer to this same process with the difference being the templates contain square brackets  as placeholders for text.
There’s numerous ways to access the Dragon Medical One auto-texts:
- You can speak the voice command “manage auto-texts”.
- If you already have the text you’d like to make into an auto-text, you can highlight it and say “make that an auto-text”.
- You can select “Manage Auto-texts” in the Dragon bar context menu shown when clicking on the flame icon.
When you open the Auto-text window through the context menu or the “manage auto-texts” command, you will select the + in the lower left corner to add a new entry and fill in the areas highlighted in red.
When entering the “Name” of the auto-text, the “Spoken Form” will automatically populate to match. We recommend that these are the same unless the spoke form is an odd phrase that differs from the written form. This will allow you to quickly see what you need to say in your list of auto-texts.
If you made it here by selecting text and using the voice command “make that an auto-text”, the body “Content” section will be populated with your text. This allows you to use content from your EHR, Microsoft Word, or most other Windows applications.
You can also create an auto-text from the dictation box by dictating or typing in the text. If you’d like it to be a template, you can insert square brackets (as pictured) which act as field placeholders for rapid navigation and completion. Once you have your content completed, highlight it (or simply say “select all”), then use the voice command “create auto-text” or “make that an auto-text”.
