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.
Transform Ideas into Text at the Speed of Thought
With Dragon, typing, spelling, or fear of the blank page won't slow you down. Dragon keeps up with your brain, instantly transforming ideas into text--with no spelling mistakes! Just say what you mean instead of struggling with the keyboard or worrying about spelling. Now you can focus more on the content of your writing and less on the mechanics of typing.

Faster, Better, Simply Smarter
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.

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.
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.Read more ›
BTW - this review was written using Windows 7 Speech Recognition. If I used Dragon, I would still be waiting.
Upon receiving the new software, I took it out of the box, I installed it on my computer, and I decided to give it a sample run. What I discovered was absolutely astonishing ...
Directly out-of-the-box, with absolutely no training whatsoever, Dragon 11 immediately proved that it was capable of recognizing approximately 95% plus of my speech patterns. Because the nature of my business requires that I use many technical terms that are not included in the Dragon dictionary, several of the words I continually use were not recognized. Nonetheless, after expending a few simple seconds to train Dragon to accurately recognize those words, the issues were entirely resolved.
Now, I feel I may comfortably state that Dragon has approached a near 100% rate of accuracy. I will also add that I am using nothing other than the headphones that were included with my purchase of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11. Although several users have commented that the headphones appear to be cheap, I'm quite happy with them.
In closing... I can only say that I am entirely satisfied with my purchase of the new version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11. This entire review was written using Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11, and I made absolutely no corrections.
