Picked up the software played around with it for a few hours. The speech recognition ability is excellent and I've only done the bare minimum voice training. It will be a learning curve to pick up all the commands in order to make the best use of the software but that is to be expected.

Installed on an old 2008 laptop that barely meets the horsepower requirement, but it runs well. There is a little bit of lag but I don't have to change the speed that I'm speaking. Very satisfied and was able to make some notes on a document much more quickly than if I was writing. Looks like this will be useful tool for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasure to use. May 26 2013
Format:DVD-ROM|Verified Purchase
My purchase of Dragon Naturally Speaking was to improve productivity and save my aching wrists. My work includes writing summaries of client visits, creative writing and maintaining a website.

I have used the Speech Recognition software that comes with Vista (kind of a joke) and Windows 7 (better) but Dragon has them both beat hands-down. Dragon has an impressive ability to 'hear' what you're saying and using it for commands works pretty good too. It also self-trains and will suggest updating its database after each session when you close out of Dragon. I haven't used it extensively yet but I'm confident that if you take the time to train it properly you won't even have to watch the monitor at all, just proofread when you are finished.

I have found the "correct" command to be a bit clunky and "spell that" has given me some trouble but the words were names or unfamiliar words and I was in a hurry so just used my keyboard for that. However I must comment that Dragon does have an excellent vocabulary of words already in it's database. As for dictation, I found I was able to speak more words in a 'packet' (at a time) than the instructions indicated. Dragon flowed along and I found I didn't have to break my sentences up into such small portions for it to keep up.

The headphones that come with it are good quality.

For absolute bliss having a wireless (bluetooth) headset would be great, an ability the higher-grade Premium version apparently offers.

This software was not sold directly from Amazon.ca but through another company and there was no difficulty whatsoever. The product arrived much sooner than the estimated delivery date. They also included a slip with contact information if I was displeased in any way.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone doing creative writing or a fair amount of typing. Or has trouble typing!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed. July 24 2014
By Rojyr
I bought the digital download version some months ago. Tried to install it more than a few times, but couldn't. I had to call tech. After that, I went through the voice training. Then it said I was ready. And I did the mic check, and it passed.
Then when I actually tried talking into the mic normally, what came out on the screen wasn't even close to what I'd said. It would get two or three words right out of ten or so. I'd try a shorter sentence. No better.
I called tech. From their advice, I purchased a sound card adapter. Still no better.
I bought this software to assist me with emails, and surfing. Sometimes I type too fast, and I have to correct my mistakes.
All I can tell you is it didn't work for me at all. Very disappointed.
It's up to you what you decide.
One final word here...I was fully refunded my purchase price. But that's the only good thing I have to say about the experience.

Ordered the headset that was offered on the same page. It isn't needed as the software comes with a headset. Also you will have to find an attachment for the headset to work with most computers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excelent Product Dec 12 2013
By dpilot
As I write this review I am using Dragon Speaking 12.5, with this latest version demonstrating even greater accuracy. You can go as deep as you want to in this program, and always enjoy good/great productivity. I purchased the 12 version shortly after it came out and I found the headset supplied with it was Mickey Mouse. My only problem has been finding a way to use it without having to have a headset clamped over my head.

I finally solved the problem with the purchase of a Vita Blue microphone which I am using now. It is a bit expensive but it enables me to speak conversationally with the mic 12 to 15 inches away and enjoy very good accuracy. The combination of the software and the mic is one that really works for me.

What I'm saying now is being typed in the Diction Box and when I am finished I will simply click "Transfer" and this text will transfer into the comment box. This is a good product and if you have lots of typing to do or maybe not too much, the Home edition is well worth the cost.

I'm giving this four stars simply because nothing is perfect and that's the only reason.

This is an update from a previous version. I have used Dragon for several years and have found it to be effective and easy to use, especially for a user with limited typing skill.
