Customized Search Tutorial

This tutorial  (click here) is one that was written for Legacy version 7.  It is applicable to Legacy version 8 except the menu structure will be different.  I will attempt to update this for Legacy 8 soon.

This tutorial instructs you on the methods to develop customized searches that can be accessed through the "Search the Internet for the Current Person" menu.

Voice Recognition Software




I have recently become a fan of voice recognition software. Especially after viewing the recent webinar on this subject. At the time of the webinar I had had Dragon Naturally Speaking installed on my computer for about 3 weeks. With a little practice, I am now using it to enter data into Legacy almost exclusively.

I've just completed making a short video (about 20 minutes) demonstrating how I use Dragon with Legacy. If you are interested in viewing this you may download it at the following link:


Please don't expect this to be a "Geoff Rasmussen" quality video, but perhaps you can get some ideas of how it can be used.
