Great Dictation Results--Without the Wires

Accurate speech recognition for PC applications
Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Preferred Wireless offers unprecedented speech recognition with unrivaled accuracy levels: up to 20% fewer speech recognition errors out of the box than Version 9, and about half the amount of errors that the product delivered just five years ago. Users gain the added benefit of avoiding spelling errors and typing mistakes. In fact, the product actually learns from corrections over time.

Works with the applications users already have
Dictate directly into Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook Express and most other Microsoft Office applications running on Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Vista. Dragon also supports popular programs such as Corel WordPerfect, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and AOL. Navigate the desktop by voice: launch or switch applications, save or print documents, and more--even control menus and dialog boxes.

Create and edit documents and spreadsheets by voice
Users can easily create documents and spreadsheets, or edit existing ones, simply by speaking. Add custom words, such as proper names, to the system's vocabulary or create commands, such as "insert signature," so that pre-set text and images will automatically appear in email and documents. Plus, Dragon enables easy correction and proofing: with the "play back" feature, users can listen to their dictation while Dragon highlights the corresponding text on the screen for easy proofreading.

Quick Voice Formatting commands allow users to issue a single voice command, such as "Bold Quick Voice Formatting," to make formatting and deleting text faster than ever. In addition, the extensive set of Natural Language Commands mean users don't have to memorize complex instructions. In Microsoft Word, for example, a user can say, "make that bigger," and the font size increases instantly.

Dragon 10 introduces new graphical icons to enhance the DragonBar user interface, making the product even easier to use!

Send email, Instant Messages and Surf the Web--All by Voice
Users can browse the Internet with ease: search the Web, access information and navigate Web pages, simply by speaking URLs and links.

Dragon Voice Shortcuts to Perform Tasks Faster Than Ever
Dragon Voice Shortcuts for Web Search make searching the Web faster and easier. A user says a command containing his desired search words, such as "Search the Web for financial management resources," or "Search maps for Italian restaurants in Burlington, Massachusetts," and Dragon 10 will use the default search engine and Web browser to enter his dictated term(s) in the search field and return the results. A user may also search specific sites or search the Web for a specific type of information using commands such as "Search Wikipedia for George Washington Carver," or "Search eBay for Bluetooth headsets." Sites supported by Dragon Voice Shortcuts include Google, Yahoo, eBay, Wikipedia, YouTube and more.

Dragon Voice Shortcuts for Desktop Search introduce commands to search the computer as directly as the Web, by dictating the word(s) to find documents, emails and Web browsing history. For example, a user can say, "Search computer for launch plans," and Dragon will complete the search using Google Desktop or Windows Vista desktop search. In addition, commands such as, "Find an email about the Robinson report" directly open the top email containing the dictated keywords. Searching the computer has never been faster--or easier.

Dictate into a handheld recorder for later transcription
Be productive on the go. Users can dictate into any Nuance-certified digital recorder when they're away from the office for automatic transcription when it is synched with a PC.

User Benefits

Faster than Typing
Most people speak more than 120 words per minute but type less than 40 words a minute. That means users can create documents and email messages more than three times faster using Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Preferred. The software never makes a spelling mistake, and it actually gets smarter the more it's used.

Easy to Use--Get Started Right Away
Dragon NaturallySpeaking installs quickly and requires no special script reading. New on-screen help and tutorials help users become experts in no time. Users can dictate letters and emails instantly!

Bluetooth Support for Great Dictation Results Without the Wires
The included Plantronics Calisto Headset with Bluetooth USB adapter delivers a totally wireless solution. The universal and highly comfortable design is adjustable to right or left ear. The headset boasts a 33 feet (10m) range with up to 8 hours of talk time.

Avoid Repetitive Strain Injuries
By using voice to control the PC and create documents, users reduce their risk of developing repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

I have just upgraded from Dragon Naturally Speaking 9 to 10. I am happy to report that so far, after a couple of days trial, this upgrade seems to have been well worth it in terms of increased accuracy. (BUT SEE LATER!) At the same time I was tempted into purchasing the alleged integrated Calisto Bluetooth microphone, attracted by the special price, the convenience of a wireless headset, and the promise of increased accuracy.

However, I have run into two problems, either of which makes the Calisto currently useless. In the first place, the Bluetooth insert device for the USB port cuts out after an hour or two of usage. Its function is only restored after completely rebooting the computer.

The second problem is far more serious. Once the Plantronics Calisto is activated, Dragon Naturally Speaking demands that you " prepare this user for dictation". You would probably be encouraged to note that the accuracy level of the new Calisto is rated very high. You are then required to read a passage from a selected text. When Dragon is satisfied with your reading, it will present you with a dialogue box telling you to wait while your user files are being adjusted for your reading. In my case my computer then simply hung up, and could not be started up again without a complete reboot. Two different Dragon phone techs attempted to solve the problem unavailingly, the second one promising I would get a call back from a top expert capable of solving the problem. No reply over the last two days, and similarly no reply yet to an email I sent them yesterday informing them of the Bluetooth insert failure.

I finally received by new Dragon 10 and the Bluetooth bundled ear piece. It took a long time as nuance did not send me any kind of tracking number so I missed the shipment. However, it was well worth the wait. I have to admit I've only had this for a few days so I have not experienced the failure of the USB inset the previous viewer has, perhaps I will over time. However, I was thrilled to see how well Bluetooth worked since I was never able to get it to work very well with version 9. Even more impressive, instead of running this on a quad core processor like I did on version 9 I am running this on an Acer netbook with the Atom processor and it works flawlessly, I am very satisfied so far. I wish that I could buy plantronics Bluetooth earpiece separately so that I would have a spare, I never thought Bluetooth would work so well after all the problems I had with various Bluetooth devices in version 9.

Verified Purchase
I am using Dragon NaturallySpeaking to type this review. I am a quadriplegic and have relied on Dragon since version 2. I have been fairly pleased with version 6 for the last seven years and was hesitant to spend the money to upgrade. I am so glad I did. I used to have to dictate a sentence, pause, check for inaccuracies, then continue with the next sentence. Now, when I do my homework, I am able to dictate an entire paragraph from what I am reading before having to take a minute and correct the one or two errors. Its speed and accuracy is an absolute significant improvement.
A couple interesting observations:
I am running Dragon 10 on two computers: one at home with Vista (Quad Core with six gig of RAM), and my work computer with XP Pro (dual core, 1G ram). It seems I have more functionability with Vista, which is ironic. For example, in Vista I can shut down the computer by voice, where with XP it goes through the motions but does not actually shut down. I am having to learn in both operating systems which commands are available in which windows, and which are not (for example, I can say "click Office Button" when I'm in Word, but then cannot click any menu items that come up--unless I say "down 2, right 1, press enter." Also, Dragon works well in Vista's PowerPoint 2007, but not XP with 2007. It's a little inconvenient learning which commands I can use at home and which ones I can use at work, but it is tolerable.
Second: At first I could not get the Plantronics wireless headset to work. I was just about ready to send it all back out of frustration. My difficulties came for two reasons.

This software is amazing. I am dictating this review using this software. I have been using personal computers well over 20 years, and I am amazed. I was interested in their software because I had a stroke about a year ago and I lost dexterity in my right hand. That made typing a real chore and I thought this software would help. Wow, does it ever help. I read the reviews and saw that many people said it works better than they expected. That is certainly true for me. I selected the package that includes the Bluetooth microphone. I love it. I will caution you that the Bluetooth mic can be complex to get working. I had some trouble with that and had to go into control panel and play with the sound settings to get the microphone working and get sufficient audio level. But it was well worth the effort. I love being able to walk around the room while I am talking. You can get a cuppa coffee, or look out the window while you are working. The software also works fine with my wired USB headset and even the headset that plugs into my sound card.

The software worked almost flawlessly 10 minutes out of the box. I dictated four paragraphs on my first try, and the software only failed to recognize one word. That was the word 'library'. I think that might be because I suffer from a mild case of Georgia mush mouth, which is caused by eating too much possum. (to all my friends in Georgia, I'm just kidding). I selected the general dialect during set up, and it seems to work fine in spite of my slightly Southern accent. The software works fine in note pad, and I use it for MySpace instant message writing too. I haven't done any training yet or added any custom commands, and there are a lot of commands that I haven't learned yet, but it really is speaking naturally.
