So far, I rate it as a 4 star, as NaturallySpeaking does what it claims to do, but we are not yet fluent users, and still have to make a lot of manual corrections.
This software was purchased for the purposes of helping my two sons (who each have learning disabilities and ADHD) with homework assignments (and becasue it is a tool currently used by our public school system).
We are still in training mode with the program, and it is having some trouble with speech patterns and word recognition. We are also struggling with the correct commands it requires for executing tasks (like spelling corrections, text selections and deletions). So far, it has been interesting learning how to use it, and we are persevering through the bumps with speech recognition. It is my understanding that the more a user reads and dictates, the more accurate Dragon NaturallySpeaking is supposed to get.
If this software can help my boys get their thoughts, opinions and answers on paper, and help them find more academic success, it will be well worth the time and effort put in to train it to interpret their speech patterns (Because I am growing TIRED of acting as their Scribe!).

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.

Installing is impossible!!! Out of the box following the autorun commands I received "Error 1155; File D:\Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12.msi not found" then proceeding to install from the Windows Installer Package I received another error "Error 1311.Source file not found: D:\ENGGen~1.cab. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it." I checked and it is on the DVD and it opens as a ZIP file, which does not help me at all!! I then copied the DVD to my (C:) drive as per instruction on answers board and still am receiving this error. I have been searching Nuance's website for answers and it appears it is very common for Windows 7 Professional 64-bit users, but Nuance has not solved this issue...

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.

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!
