From the Manufacturer

Control Your Digital World by Voice

Dragon Dictate speech recognition software lets you use your voice to do more on your Mac than you ever thought possible. More than just speech-to-text, Dragon Dictate lets you use your voice to command your Mac. Create and edit documents, manage e-mail, surf the web, update your Facebook or Twitter status, and more – all by voice. Open, close, and navigate between applications, or even create your own custom voice commands to execute multiple steps with a simple word or phrase.

Capture your notes using a digital voice recorder or your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with our free Dragon Recorder app, and Dragon Dictate will transcribe them for you when you are back at your Mac. Dragon Dictate lets you get more done – at home, school, work, or wherever life takes you – with the power of your voice.


Turn Your Talk Into Text

Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 lets you transform your ideas into text at the speed of thought. Simply speak and Dragon captures your thoughts – three times faster than typing, and with 99% accuracy – so you’ll never lose track of another great idea.

Dictate and edit documents, e-mails, instant messages, Facebook and Twitter posts, and more. Correcting or revising your dictated text is simple with a new, more powerful correction interface that lets you quickly edit words or phrases. And Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 adapts to your voice and the words you use to deliver better recognition results over time. You can even personalize Dragon with acronyms, proper names, and other unique phrases that you frequently use.

Use Your Favorite Applications

Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 goes beyond simple speech-to-text, and gives you control in more applications so that you can simply speak to do more than ever before. Use Dragon Dictate in Mac OS X Lion or Mountain Lion with virtually any Mac application. Create and edit documents in Microsoft Word, TextEdit, Notepad, and Pages, work with spreadsheets in Microsoft Excel and Numbers, create presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint and Keynote, manage e-mail in Mail, search the web or your Mac desktop, post to Facebook or Twitter, and more – all by voice.

Dragon Dictate’s Express Editor lets you dictate into a text field in any application on the Mac for which it does not have Full Text Control. After you finish dictating, simply transfer the text from the Express Editor to the desired application quickly and easily by voice.

Command Your Mac, Comfortably

Say "goodbye" to repetitive stress injuries. Use your Mac in a comfortable, ergonomic way without being tied to your keyboard and mouse. Open applications or folders, select menu items, click or move the mouse, press keys, switch from one application to another, or create custom voice commands to execute multiple steps by voice. Use your compatible iOS or Android device, or a Wideband Bluetooth headset as a wireless microphone for even more convenience.

Go Mobile

Capture thoughts while they’re still fresh in your mind to produce detailed, high-quality reports, papers, proposals, meeting minutes, and more. Record your voice using Nuance’s free Dragon Recorder app with a compatible iOS device, or, for more advanced recording functionality, a Nuance-approved digital voice recorder. Dragon will transcribe the audio files into text when you return to your Mac.
