Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
If you really want a digital voice recorder there is a list of supported Sony, Philips and and Olympus models. Many at far less than the $89 premium being charged for the included Philips base model. Here is the link to the lists of all supported input devices (you will need to copy this into your browser - as Amazon redacts most off-site links) where you can select Dragon Naturally Speaking from the drop down list and on the resulting page select from links for supported wireless/wired microphones, recording devices, embedded microphones, smart phones (with apps), etc.
Here is a link to the Philips DVT1400/00 included on the list with 6 dragons, if you want a dedicated voice recorder. I think the free app is great with my old iPhone4 and the price is unbeatable too.
I think that covers the recorder issue. Hope someone finds that helpful in their research. Below is my review of the software using the included wired headset.
Dragon Naturally Speaking Premium 13 is a useful and flexible tool for those who take the time to setup and train it. I recently helped my brother setup Dragon Naturally Speaking Premium 12 a while after he purchased it. I'll focus on the differences between the two.
With both installation on Windows 7 Pro was painless. The initial setup of 12 wanted you to do the training step which involves reading several pages from a publication. These are internal to the Dragon setup with several good selections. With 13 much of this is optional, but still improves accuracy and helps Dragon learn you writing style.
Dragon profile setup may be tedious, but I think it's worth it for the improved results.
In Dragon 13 literature there are 14 new or improved features:
1) 15% greater accuracy: I'm not sure how such a definitive number, but I believe it's improved.
2) Learning from sent email works with web clients now:
I don't use the supported web mail clients - I'm an Outlook gal.
3) There is a new Dragon Vocabulary editor:
I have not tried this yet. I'll share my experience when I update this again later.
4) Smart Format Rules Enhancement:
I think 13 is learning my common usage and adapting. This is kind of subtle and I can't really tell yet if it's better than 12.
5) Faster Than Ever:
13 does seem a little faster to me but it's hard to tell on different machines with different characteristics. My brother's PC with 12 is an older core duo and has 6GB. Mine is a newer core i7 with 16GB. It seems fast enough to me. 13 is supposed to evaluate the resources of a system and adapt Dragon to make the best use of even limited resources.
Easier setup is via several changes in requirements and the audio setup. All to remove or make optional steps that were included in the Dragon 12 setup. This makes it faster to get started but all three of these improve quality.
6) With 13 Dragon assigns a name to profiles:
To name a profile you need to rename it later. In 12 you were asked for the name when creating the profile.
7) The somewhat tedious reading for 4 minutes isn't required any more:
It does improve accuracy. My vision impaired brother struggled with reading the selection from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and it took us nearly an hour to get through it. When we were done Dragon did very well with his distinct "Down East" Maine accent. While it's not required in 13 I think it made a noticeable improvement.
8) Dragon 13 no longer asks to adapt its vocabulary with documents/email at profile creation:
This saves time but, again it is a step that benefits overall use at a less convenient startup. Document/email analysis can be done later.
9) Dragon 13 audio setup lets you just pick your input device:
I used the headset that came with Dragon Dragon Naturally Speaking Premium which works very well. 13 also works pretty well with my laptop's built-in noise cancelling microphone which 12 didn't support. I don't even recall the microphone setup steps on 12 so I think they must have been almost as easy. I'm happy to see support for the open source OpenOffice Writer V4.1.
10) The microphone check step is a short reading:
Again I don't recall this step on 12 though I'm sure it was there too.
11) Dragon 13 has increased its support of web based applications:
Support has been added for web applications like Gmail and added commands and support for all major browsers. I have not explored this too much yet. I'll update this review when I've learned more. Dragon is very impressive to me in the amount of voice control it readily provides.
12) The DragonBar has been redesigned in 13:
If you have 12 and want to go back to the "classic" bar it's in there and supported. I like the way it autocollapses so it does not use more screen space than needed.
13) The Dragon Sidebar is now the Learning Center:
Whatever they call it I like having it around as I am continuing to learn Dragon. They way it adapts to the context of the currently open application is clever and very helpful.
14) The interactive tutorial has been expanded:
It now covers the Dragon bar, learning center and the Vocabulary Editor. I think the tutorials are pretty good, but I just jumped in head first. In 12 my brother tried the tutorial simulation. It was well intentioned but the tutorial didn't understand his accent. Seems the tutorials do not use the just created profile. They are there for those who want/need them and that's a very good thing.
So far I'm liking Dragon 13 with the included headset. It's a complex program with many aspects I hope to try and dig into as I find time to get beyond my present basic use. These include using the dictation transcription capability which I hope to use with the iPhone app.
Dragon isn't perfect - sometimes it can seem to get confused when I stumble over some words, and this can result in dictated text that is hilarious! When this happens and I try to continue while laughing the results can get even more funny to the point where I have to stop and walk away and regain my composure before continuing. Somehow I've come to really like those fairly rare times takes me into a laughing fit. I can't think of another program where I look forward to it going off the rails like this.
It seems to me that 13 appears more an incremental improvement over 12 than a revolutionary upgrade. If I had 12 instead of my brother I would probably just kept it. If you need the expanded applications control or need more flexible microphone capability then 13 may be a good move even from 12.
Because it's the standard at what it does and I've had no problems with it I'm giving Dragon Naturally Speaking Premium 13 Five stars but because I don't think the recorder package is a good deal I'm knocking it down to 4 stars..
