What is a DRA file?
Audio file saved by Dragon, a program used to generate text documents from voice recordings; stores the audio as it was dictated by the user; saved so that the software's generated text can be corrected later if it does not match the dictation.
Dragon uses speech recognition technology to translate spoken audio data into text documents.

File created by Dolphin PartMaster, a CAD/CAM application suite used for designing and manufacturing components; contains numerical control instructions for directing a machine tool, such as a drill, during production.
The Dolphin PartMaster CAD program is used to design the part, which is then passed to the PartMaster CAM program to generate toolpaths and their coordinates.
NOTE: PartMaster actually includes multiple programs in the software package for completing designs and generating toolpaths.

File Type 4Scriptor Script File
.DRA File Association 4
A DRA file is a script file created by Scriptor, a screenwriting application popular in the 1980s and 1990s. It contains text formatted into a screenplay, which includes scene, actor, and prop notations.
Scriptor is used to format text saved in a document, such as a .DOC or .DOCX file, in screenplay format. The formatting includes scene, character, prop, and shooting location organization. The formatting also includes the percentage of the screenplay a scene takes up.
After formatting a document in Scriptor, the document is converted to a DRA file. The only program that can open the DRA file is Scriptor. However, the program cannot edit the DRA file, only open it. Unfortunately, since Scriptor is no longer developed, there are many DRA script files that are essentially "locked" forever.
