I've used a touch screen keyboard with the XUL client, and of course lots of folks use barcode scanners. I don't see any reason why Dragon Naturally Speaking would be different, though I haven't used it myself. The client should be agnostic to what kind of "keyboard" is used. Any input device that can enter text should be fine.
If you do go the Dragon route this page of voice equivalents for keyboard combinations ("Using your keyboard by voice") may be useful: https://www.nuance.com/products/help/dragon/dragon-for-pc/enx/professionalgroup/main/Content/CommandandControl/using_your_keyboard.htm Benjamin Kalish Forbes Library / 413-587-1012 / bkal...@forbeslibrary.org Support Forbes Library: - Consider giving a gift <http://www.forbeslibrary.org/giving> to Forbes Library - Vote for the Friends of Forbes in the Florence Bank Community Grant Program <https://www.florencebank.com/vote>. - Join the Friends the Forbes today <https://forbeslibrary.org/friends/>!
