In addition to simple commands that create email, schedule appointments, and search the Web or desktop, now you can use "Search [website] for [xyz]" commands to conduct specific searches on Facebook.com, MySpace.com, Twitter, IRS.gov, and the Nuance technical KnowledgeBase.

Be More Creative and Productive--Anywhere

Dragon keeps up with users' brains, instantly transforming ideas into text--with no typos. So you can focus on content instead of typing and spelling for higher quality, more detailed results. For optimal convenience, you can:

Stand up, pace, or cross the room--there's no need to be tethered to your PC when you use Dragon with a wireless headset. Or use the free Dragon Remote Microphone application to turn your iPhone into a wireless microphone. Now it's easier - and more comfortable - for users to capture their thoughts and ideas without letting the keyboard get in their way.

Dictate notes using a digital voice recorder to capture thoughts while they're still fresh in your mind. And training recorders has never been easier!

New! Creating a user profile for a digital voice recorder has never been faster or easier. Plus, Dragon 11 Premium now directly accepts more audio file formats.

Easy to Use

New! The Dragon Sidebar allows users to discover and access key commands and tips by putting them in one convenient desktop location. Its content automatically changes depending on which window is currently active.

Dragon Premium works with just about any Windows application--Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, Internet Explorer, OpenOffice Writer, and more--making the applications you rely on every day faster and easier to use.

Success Stories

Ed Madaus, Executive Director of Guild of St. Agnes: “I wasn’t doing a good job hunting and pecking on the keyboard while composing and replying to e-mails. My e-mail replies used to be as brief as possible, but now I can just speak my responses and be more in-depth with them.” Read more [PDF]

Architect Christine Broda: "A lot of what I do uses technical terms, but Dragon does a good job of picking up just about everything. If I say ‘half-inch,’ for example, it better come out right.” Read more [PDF]

The progress in speech recognition over the years has been mind boggling. 1995 was when I first started using IBM Via Voice and you had to speak each word distinctly. Original Dragon product was called Dragon Dictate and then they changed it to Dragon Naturally Speaking in 1997 and I have been using it ever since, faithfully upgrading to each new version. At that time when you called technical support you could even talk to Dr. Janet Baker, the inventor of the speech recognition and founder of Dragon.

With version 4 they started Dragon Naturally Speaking Medical and that helped in that medical terminology was already included albeit several folds the cost of the regular professional Dragon Naturally Speaking.

Each version has improved the accuracy and they have not made the product unduly complicated or cluttered, as is the usual tendency with software upgrades. Version 11 of Dragon is slower and needs more resources, I could not run it in Windows 7 under Fusion and have to use it in Windows 7 under Bootcamp on Mac. The speech recognition accuracy is almost 97% in this version: it still stumbles on small words like two, to, too, 2; of, off; and, on; for, per etc. But upgrading from Dragon version 10, the improvement is accuracy is noticeable enough to make this upgrade worthwhile. Although program gives you the option of adding punctuation automatically, in my experience it does not work well and you are better off dictating punctuation. Tutorial videos that come with the program and on their Nuance web site are very helpful. In the past it really helped that you could print the commands and pin the sheet on the wall so you could reference them while dictating: not in this version, they do not give you the option of printing commands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Differences Between DNS 11 Premium & Home Versions October 15, 2010
If you are trying to decide between the Home and Premium versions of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11, here is what Premium DNS 11 does that Home DNS 11 will not let you do:
* import or export custom word lists
* use voice commands (in English only, though) for Excel and PowerPoint 2003, 2007, or 2010 (Both versions can use voice commands for certain other programs such as Word)
* playback speech in documents
* save settings for more than one type of audio input device in a user profile
* allow transcription from certain supported digital recorders
* support a certain Bluetooth device for dictation

If you're new to DNS, you may find that one or more Premium features are very useful to your optimal use of the program. Most importantly for me, Premium can import or export custom word lists. If in your documents you often use a specialized vocabulary, say for a profession or hobby, and you can find online or in a file a list of common vocabulary words for it, you can save that list in Word in .txt file format and then import that .txt file directly into Premium DNS 11. This can be a tremendous timesaver over entering the words manually, depending on the size of your list. In DNS Home, you can enter new vocabulary the software will then recognize, but you'll do it typing or orally spelling them in, one word at a time. In Premium, after importing a list, you will likely still have to do voice training with a small percentage of your specialized vocab words, but most of them will be immediately recognized by DNS when you dictate them without any special training.

If you want to see Nuance's official list of the differences between the DNS versions, websearch "Dragon NaturallySpeaking Feature Matrix" and look for the .PDF file in the results.

1.0 out of 5 stars Transcription Fail - Sent Back to Amazon September 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
Dragon Naturally Speaking Premium 11 by Nuance / B003VNCROU

I bought this software with one goal in mind - my intent was to couple the software with a solid voice recorder in order to transcribe spoken notes, reviews, and journal entries. My intent was to "talk on the road" my reviews and journal entries, load the sound files onto my computer at the end of the day, feed them into Dragon, and with a minimum of editing turn out the text so that I could then paste the result into an Amazon window and bang off for the evening. As you will see, this didn't work so well.

Firstly, I did my research. The Nuance website has plenty of graphs on the best voice recorders for their software. I eventually went with the Philips Black Digital Voice Tracer 0660 - an inexpensive model (due to its lack of bells and whistles that I didn't need) that records with crystal clarity, has one of the best ratings on the Nuance site, and is *optionally bundled with this version of the software*. I want to emphasize that point - I own the recommended digital voice recorder that Nuance bundles with this device (for an extra $100, of course).

Once Dragon 11 came in the mail, setup was relatively breezy. I set this up on a Windows 7 environment with no problems. I was a little disappointed, however, to see that the transcription abilities right out of the box weren't exactly 90% or better - just to be clear, I loaded in a simple three-sentence sound file and Dragon only got a single word right. Direct dictation worked a lot better, but I didn't buy this to sit at my computer and speak - I bought it to transcribe audio files.
