Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 Premium

Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 Premium is a significant improvement on its predecessor: speech recognition is more accurate out of the box, and the user interface is generally slicker. The new command reference sidebar needs attention, though.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Preferred

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Preferred

<p> Speech-to-text software is an acquired taste, but in our view it should be much more widely used than it is. The best software is easy to use and, in our experience, can be a lot faster than typing &mdash; even for accomplished touch typists. The best products are adept at a lot more than simply getting words into your favourite word processor: you can control a wide variety of applications too. Nuance has recently released the latest version of its market-leading Dragon NaturallySpeaking (DNS) product, which it claims is more accurate and faster than ever. </p>

Capable of fast and accurate speech-to-text processing, application control and audio file transcription, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 is an excellent dictation program. You'll still have to spend time training both the software and yourself, though.
