Applications you can use alongside Glean

Screen Readers

Glean's interface has been designed to work with screen readers. The text on screen is accessible and can be read aloud. You can easily navigate through the interface using the keyboard (if required).

We routinely test Glean with NVDA and Apple's inbuilt voice over tools. But any ScreenReader should work with Glean, including NVDAJAWS, Apple's Voice Over and Window's Narrator.

You can read more about our accessibility options (including Screen reader support) here:

Dragon Naturally Speaking

Dragon is a 'paid for' speech recognition application. You can use Dragon alongside Glean when you want to speak out your text notes, rather than typing them. 

Simply click in Glean to create a new label, start Dragon, and speak your notes.

You can also use Dragon to control your computer via any keyboard shortcuts. Simply tell Dragon to 'Press' specific keys on your keyboard. You can use this technique along with Glean's shortcut keys:
