Pros
Good recognition of the voice, compatibility with almost all the most important software. Buy the professional version to have the chance to use also with EXCEL.
It is a great time saver when you need to get some letters out and a great way to open word and get to formatting the template. It is a positive review and the price, when bought on sale is worth it.
Dragon helped me increase my productivity and ease my wrist/hand pains. The dictating process is fluid and also helps creativity, I'd recommend Dragon to every translator out there.
Cons
Using Dragon NaturallySpeaking for difficult sentences and uncommon, atypical words, especially when spoken with an accent, makes this software essentially useless.
I realize that the main design of the software probably to assist visually impaired people, but then wouldn't the frequent inaccuracies make it rather bad for that category of customers.
I had two technical problems that were very seriously hindering my capacity to use the program. All attempts to get a tech support failed.

Accurate speech recognition

Reviewed 4 years ago

It's more accurate and faster than google and works really well offline. Works well with accents and learns how you speak over time. Gets better the more you use it.

Pros

Been using Dragon software since the 90s and every version gets better. Not only does a great job when dictation, but works well at controlling computer

Cons

The number of license options and versions over the years have become confusing and I wish this was simplified. Wish one liencce could run on my multiple computers. Better mac support would be great

Works like a charm

Reviewed 6 years ago

If you are in language transcription business or medical transcription business or just have a lot of tying to do, don’t give it a second thought and just buy this. It’s incredible at what it does with Speed and Accuracy. It could really save you a lot of time but it takes a while to get to know the commands and get your voice recognised in all scenarios. Overall a great product 👍🏻

Pros

1) Accuracy is one of the best things about it. 2) Speed is another aspect that it scores highly. I talk really fast, but it still manages to write down almost all of it. 3) Command Set is pretty easy to understand and get used to. 4)Huge Time saver - If you are into Transcription business like me, it’s a dream come true. You can get so much done in such little time and ofcourse earn more 🙂

Cons

1) RAM consumption is a lot with this software. You can’t really multitask if it’s open. 2) Sometimes it starts to lag behind in the writing process, but that rarely happens. 3) Comprehensive inbuilt Grammar check is missing which would really take this software to a new level.

Used to be great!

Reviewed 3 years ago

As per the title - this software used to be great, even excellent! Later versions are poor in comparison and I am now looking to switch to another product most definitely. I did think I would ever switch from Dragon!

Pros

Difficult to say – used to be a great piece of software now it isjust a continual disruption…

Cons

It basically just keeps failing – it is not consistent in terms of its operation and use. For example, this morning, I trained a couple of words i.e. acronyms that I use on a regular basis. This spelling was accepted and I applied it a couple of times. Only an hour later, the words are not recognised. I try to re-iinput the same word and same spelling again, but it reverts to a normal spelling. Also regularly now, words appear with extra letters in them – as per the example here with input, it is not that I cannot spell input it is just that this is how Dragon spells it… Have had various problems recently and every time the aim of customer service is to get you off the phone as quickly as possible – to be quite frank this business has lost the plot.

Dragon Nuance Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

As a voice writer, I use Dragon Naturally Speaking together with another program daily. I transcribe all court records using this software and it has become quick and easy.

Pros

I have been using Dragon for the past two years. It has helped me to become more productive at work. With the Dragon software, I transcribe more audio hours per week compared to typing on a qwerty keyboard.

Cons

As someone with a Caribbean accent, I had to train the Dragon software to recognise my pronunciation of many words. Training the software took a little time; however, it was worth it. Dragon now recognises my pronunciation perfectly, and this has resulted in greater accuracy.
