Dragon adapts to your voice and the words you use to deliver better recognition results over time. You can even personalize Dragon with your own custom vocabulary of acronyms, proper names and other unique phrases that you frequently use.

Ignite Efficiency with Voice-Driven Multitasking

Dragon Voice Shortcuts collapse common multi-step tasks into direct voice commands you can use at any time, no matter which applications are currently active. For example, say: "Send email to John Smith and Raphael Sanchez" or "Search maps for financial advisors in Boston, Massachusetts" or "search Google for 87 divided by 12" and Dragon makes it happen. You can also say "open top site for Facebook" and Dragon automatically opens the top-ranked page for these keywords. You can even use voice commands to create e-mails, schedule tasks and appointments, and search your computer faster than ever before.

Ignite Mobility for Productivity On-the-Go

A free Dragon Recorder app lets you record high-quality audio files using your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch (4th gen). For more advanced recording functionality, dictate into a Nuance-approved digital voice recorder, and then have Dragon transcribe the audio files into text when you return to your PC. These mobile recording capabilities enable you to capture thoughts while they’re still fresh in your mind to produce detailed, high-quality reports, papers, proposals, meeting minutes, and more.

***UPDATE*** I find that Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 is spot on in terms of getting my words right. I've only used it for a few days but as far as voice recognition goes it's great. I followed all the advice below (because it's the best way to get good dictation) I feel that this product only gets better ever iteration. And I only use it for dictation and not mouse commands etc. I'd like to note any blue tooth headset will work

The following is a guide to helping new users to voice dictation to understand how to get the most out of Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Now these principles apply to all voice dictation software. I will update this review with more of the new features and how Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 runs when I've had time to use the software more.

(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. I have been using Dragon naturally speaking since 1995 and I must say it is truly an amazing product and Dragon Dictate for Mac/Dragon NaturallySpeaking are only getting better. I want to give a basic overview on voice dictation and being successful.

To see my comedy set just google: AskACapper or I'm The Can't Stand Up Comic

One other thing to note I do not use Dragon for mouse movements and commands as I had the ability to use a touchpad mouse so I will not delve into those features in my review. This will merely focus on how you can use voice dictation effectively to receive near 100% accuracy. And how Dragon does it almost perfectly every time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy the one without the headset May 24, 2013
By Kyle
Verified Purchase
I am actually very happy with Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium as a software product. In fact, I am actually using it to dictate this review. However, I am not as impressed with the headset that is included in this particular package. I was actually pretty unhappy with my purchase until I tried it using an old, crappy wired headset with a boom mic that I had at home. When I used the wired headset, Dragon's accuracy shot up unbelievably. So, I am recommending that people purchase the software by itself and get a headset separately. The OfficeRunner wireless headset, offered through Amazon, is quite excellent if you are looking for a wireless offering.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great program November 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
I would recommend this product to anyone who has to do a lot of typing or transcribing. It saves a lot of time. The only thing I don't like is some words or phrases transcribe incorrectly. But being a healthcare professional, I am impressed with the medical terms the program knows. I would highly recommend the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this! October 31, 2013
Verified Purchase
I purchased Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium software not as a substitute for regular keyboarding, but as an adjunct, in order to spare my hands and arms from repetitive-stress syndrome from too much typing. I am a writer, and the only thing I will be using this software for is word processing, which I realize is a fraction of what it can do.

I had previously owned an earlier version of Dragon back in 2007. At that time I wasn't as highly motivated by hand, arm and shoulder pain to learn this software as I am now, and I was also intimidated by what I assumed would be a huge learning curve to master the software before I could use it. As a result, I never got off the ground with it.

This time around, keyboarding pain inspired me to push past my previous concerns, and in doing so I made a happy discovery: it only took me a couple of hours, on a single day, to fully train the program using the bluetooth so that it could accurately recognize my voice. Also, though there are a whole lot of potential voice commands available to be used, since I only need this for word processing, there are not more than a dozen I needed to memorize to get me well on my way, for example: CAP, NEW LINE, OPEN PAREN, CLOSE PAREN, OPEN QUOTE, CLOSE QUOTE.

Here are the some things I've noticed as I've been using this software regularly which might be useful for a potential customer to know:

1. I like the functionality of the bluetooth that comes with this software package. It works extremely well for voice recognition with this software. However, it is not the most comfortable fit in my ear that I've experienced in a bluetooth. I have to fiddle with it a lot to get it firmly lodged in my ear so that it does not feel as if it is going to fall off.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware November 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have used Dragon in the past and found it to be a great time saving tool. Since I have a new machine, I needed a new copy and this one came with a bluetooth headphone - perfect! Or it would be if the disk were not defective.
When contacted, Nuance informed me that I would need to buy a replacement disk. This program was never loaded anywhere; the disk was defective, out of the box. I find it appalling that a consumer is forced to buy a replacement disk for a defective product.
I reluctantly paid for the disk, but future consumers need to know that the company does not stand behind its product.
