Not as easy as is advertised
on April 10, 2011
I was excited to get this product but was soon disappointed. Dragon had a hard time understanding. I have 3 different microphones (1 headset came with the software, 1 an expensive headset, and 1 desktop microphone. Dragon would miss identify words so I added them manually but it still didn't get the word. Then, after a while it didn't do anything, even when I would say a command; nothing, kaput. There have been several emails to the help area but that wasn't helpful at all. After a few suggestions, the responses went back to the beginning and started suggesting the aids from the beginning. I gave up and uninstalled the software. That left a conflict behind that made my laptop make a loud noise from the speakers. I had to uninstall a sound mixer.
If you by it, beware. They give 30 days to return. I would suggest returning it early because they won't take it after 30 days; even-though I spent all that time trying to make it work. I checked my computer and it came with a speech to text program and it is so much better than Dragon!
