Stop Typing, Start Talking

Just say words and watch them appear on the computer screen--three times faster than typing--with up to 99-percent accuracy right out of the box. Dragon can learn the words you say every day, including acronyms and proper names. It even gets to know you better over time for increased recognition accuracy.

Speak and the PC Obeys

Dragon eliminates the need to navigate menu options or type in keywords so users get more done faster. Just tell Dragon what to do, and it does it. Control applications or edit and format text using simple voice commands like "Open Microsoft Word," "Show my photos," "Bold that," or "Center the row."

Multi-task Like Never Before

Dragon Voice Shortcuts make it faster and easier than ever to create email or search the Web or desktop for specific information or resources.

  • Send an email to multiple friends by saying, "Send email to Jon Smith and Raphael Sanchez." Dragon automatically opens Microsoft Outlook, creates a new email, and enters the correct email addresses for you.
  • Say commands like "Search the Web for low-fat lasagna recipe" or "Search maps for Union College in Schenectady, New York," and Dragon returns the results.

Faster, Better, Simply Smarter

Accuracy Center
Variety of tools to refine profile accuracy. View larger.

From improved accuracy and faster performance, to an intuitive user interface with a rich Help system, powerful new voice commands, and an enhanced correction and adaptation process, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 has been redesigned to be Faster, Better, and Simply Smarter.

The Dragon user interface now offers better usability, and includes a new Sidebar showing tips as well as many commands. It's now easier to discover, remember, and access important Dragon features and options. New Recognition Analytics continuously monitor audio quality and alert users when there is an audio issue, to help them achieve their best accuracy. More than ever, Dragon 11 enables users to focus on their thoughts and ideas rather than the mouse, keyboard or computer screen.

Dragon 11 is more accurate out of the box than version 10, and uses state-of-the-art technology. Thanks to improvements at various levels, corrections are faster to make, and quickly become less necessary. Version 11 "learns" better than any previous version, including from existing documents and dictations as well as from corrections made via the keyboard. Dragon 11 responds faster to voice commands and also introduces new time-saving commands that consolidate multiple mouse clicks and keystrokes. It's faster and easier to open applications, get to a particular window, move within a window, send e-mail, create appointments, search the Web, and more--all by voice. So now users can get even more done faster on their computers.

4.0 out of 5 stars review by using product without editing September 14, 2010
By Bill
Verified Purchase
I'm writing this review, ours should set the computer and NaturallySpeaking 11 home are writing this review as I dictate. Please note I'll be doing no editing whatsoever. So if there any misspellings or miss words or whatever, it's either the software or I can't talk correctly. I'm guessing it's software since I have not been drinking, suffered any head trauma recently, or taken any hallucinogenic. So let's begin.

So what I'm going to do in this test is simply say a few phrases and words that are well-known and you can judge for yourself accuracy.

Mary had a Little Lamb whose fleece was white as snow and everywhere that Mary went the lamb was sure to go.
I'm mad as hell when I couldn't take it anymore.
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
Here's looking at you kid.
Four score and seven years ago our forefathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation dedicated to the proposition that all men are rated equal yada yada yada.
How many licks does it take to get to the center of the tootsie pop? The world may never know.
Should a taken a left at Albuquerque.
Once upon a time there through the pigs each one had a house. One pig had a house of straw, another had a house made of sticks, and the third had a house made of bricks.

As suggested, words with same sound different meaning:

(Typed by hand) To, too, and two.

Voice:
I want to go to the store.
Are you going to the store to?
Are the two of you going Russian Mark?( program took ? As Russian Mark)

(Typed by hand) There, Their

voice:
their houses over there.
There's no business like show business.
Their car, their house, there you are.

(Typed by hand) Write, right.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Dragon NaturallySpeaking it is just amazing. September 25, 2010
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
(This whole review is done with Dragon I will not edit it at all)

As a quadriplegic standup comedian (okay I'm the cant stand up comic) I spent a lot of time doing voice dictation and I have been using Dragon naturally speaking since 1995 and I must say it is truly an amazing product. One thing you need to think about when you get into voice dictation is speaking in word clumps. You have to think about what you want to have Dragon type for you then you have to say those sentences in chunks (I hope that makes sense) most people who complain about voice dictation don't take the time to realize this.

in the following example I did edit the text when errors were made for continuity of thought.
[Example]
if I wanted to say "Is that the wheelchair that goes upstairs?" "No it is not but it goes downstairs one time really fast!"
The way I attacked this sentence was "Is that the wheelchair -pause- that goes upstairs question mark -pause- no it is not -pause- but it goes downstairs -pause- one time really fast exclamation point

Here is another one "what is the worst thing that a handicapped person can hear? Is it a doctor telling you you'll never walk again? Or someone saying you can't go with us because you are disabled? No the worst thing we can hear is someone in a crowd yell "run for your lives" at that point I know I am boned.

Got it on Monday and sent it back to Amazon on Friday. I was using Windows 7 Speech Recognition with surprisingly good results. After hearing all the ads for Dragon, I decided to give it a try to see if its accuracy was better than Windows. It was, except Dragon's speech recognition engine is 20 times slower than Windows. While I could speak naturally with Windows, Dragon required me to stop at the end of each sentence and wait a minute or two for it to figure out what I was saying. Dragon slowly populated one phrase at a time. The product is completely unusable. I recommend you use the built-in speech recognition of Windows 7, which is far better than Dragon and it's free!

BTW - this review was written using Windows 7 Speech Recognition. If I used Dragon, I would still be waiting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 11 September 3, 2010
I previously used Dragon version 10 for about eight months. When the new version 11 came out I was called by their customer service and after they described the new improvements. I bought it and am very happy I did. I'm still trying to get used to the punctuation aspects. The help screens are very good and the fact that it will take so many verbal commands is very helpful to me. I have multiple sclerosis and can no longer type but can use the mouse so I feel grateful that such a program exists. I did upgrade to a Logitech microphone because of another review I read earlier. I found two problems: when you try to use the rename function (F2) and bring up a spell window any entry will not transferred to the renamed file.Nuance has confirmed it is a bug but as of April 2011 have not corrected it. The second is a program does have a delay in response of at least a few seconds to as long as two or 3 min. to type the dictation. What causes this. I'm not aware of but it is a flaw with this program. I just have to wait until it suddenly wakes up and starts to type. I know it's a problem that if I say " go to sleep" and wait to see when the microphone turns to yellow. It has woken up. Which happened while I was typing this. All in all it's a super program and I used all the time.
