3.0 out of 5 stars Is the medical version worth the extra $1,450.00? March 2, 2011
As a long-time medical user of Dragon dictation systems I can say with authority that Dragon dictation software is still far from perfect. With past versions, dictating numbers is particularly troublesome, and accuracy is still far from ideal, even basic words such as "thigh" seem to baffle the program. I have to shut the software down and restart it every day, which is a serious annoyance. The software continues to be somewhat unstable, voice files balloon to gargantuan size and new voice profiles must be created, and Dragon suffers from compatibility issues with some types of software. And now to make their beleaguered users even more upset, Nuance is charging a huge, unnecessary premium for the new version of the medical program. I am very sorry that IBM gave up on their voice recognition software, because Nuance has no competition in this field. If there was real competition, we'd see dramatic changes.

I had a previous version (6, 7 and 9) of Dragon Medical, which was running OK on XP based machines. I was able to install it on multiple machines that I use to dictate in my medical office. It was not very accurate, but I have trained myself to workaround the inaccuracies, and overall it was functioning well for me. I was using a large number of macros. Unfortunately, with the advent of Windows 7, I cannot get my version of Dragon medical to install. I tried very hard to do so, there are sites on the Internet that have instructions for installing older versions on newer machines, but I was not able to make this work. I even tried running it on a virtual XP machine inside windows 7, but so far this has not been successful either.

I am dictating this particular review using Dragon 11 Home. I have not reconciled myself to have to spend $1500.

2.0 out of 5 stars STILL not ready for "prime time" November 18, 2009
Our 8 person internal medicine practice dumped our transcription service and went to this on the rave reviews of one member of the group. The problem, as always, is reasonable sound recognition ability but not actually WORD or language recognition.

So, (or sew), saying "225" FREQUENTLY can yield "2-5", "2 to 5", and do (dew) so repeatedly. It claims to learn from your corrections, but I (eye) haven't been impressed. At least 25% of notes have hidden errors where (wear) (we're) a word that makes no sense whatsoever will be heard by the program and inserted.

Just today,
"I've already discussed" was transcribed as "Arty discussed."
"He began feeling better" came out as "Ejection feeling better"
"Doubt that this" came out as "Gout that this"
"His" instead of "Has" and random "He" vs "she" insertions in notes.
H1N1 is "h one and one"
"problems" is "proms"

The problem with these errors is that a cursory glance over the note sometimes doesn't catch them since it still looks like English even if it's gibberish. I've looked at a note during a follow-up visit and absolutely had no idea what it was I said versus the word salad that was transcribed by Dragon.

More trouble than it's worth at half the price

Not that you can easily tell from the Nuance website description, but The small office version does not include the medical templates (namely the ability to add variable fields to an otherwise pre-written note and "tab" to the next input area by saying "next field"). This is a simple macro that you can build yourself into the DNS commands, but you'll have to pay another $400.00 to have it pre-installed with the full version. There's a book called "Scripting for Dragon Naturally Speaking 10" that explains how to write the macro yourself ([...]), but it still isn't simple. The ability to use pre-written templates is very useful. Also, the small office version doesn't support dictating into a Citrix EMR system directly (you can still cut and paste). The criticism that it still garbles a lot of common English is valid, but my peers who have been working with it seem to agree that putting early effort into training it/correcting errors makes it much more accurate and useful. Tech support and customer service where pretty dense when it came to explaining why the small office version didn't utilize templates, so I don't have high hopes for them when it comes to real problems. Overall, DNS Medical 10 still beats typing everything.

I know several editions starting with Dragon NaturallySpeaking Standard Edition, according to prefer, and then Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical version 8, upgrades 9 and 10. Each and every upgrade has continued to provide some sort of frustration. Either the speech recognition goes widely and correctly, or, there is some technical air that has required me to pay me put or change my machine configuration, and although nothing has changed dramatically and I still own the same laptop computer, I somehow run out of activations in their activation server. Unlike Microsoft's operating system which allows me to reactivate without much trouble, Dragon naturally speaking for some reason fails to recognize that the machine fingerprint is still exactly the same. I wind up buying the next upgrade for several hundred dollars and again, the same series of disappointments. There is only one way to improve this product, which is to help develop an open-source project that will allow me to avoid using this product altogether.
