I just upgraded to version 12 of Nuance’s Dragon NaturallySpeaking, the popular dictation software. I am actually “writing” this post by dictating it on my Bluetooth microphone. I continue to be amazed at how accurate the software is. This really is a remarkable product. If you ever wanted to get dictation software, but you are not sure whether it was good enough, I’m here to tell you that it is definitely good enough. In fact this product has been good enough for several versions. I have been using it for years and it gets better and better.
What is even more remarkable is the fact that I can walk on my treadmill desk with the noise of my footsteps, and the fan from my air conditioner blowing in the background, and it doesn’t seem to interfere with the translation of all. I can remember the earlier versions were more sensitive to background noise. And still you should use it in a quiet environment.
If you have any questions about it feel free to ask. I think using this product is a great preventive measure for carpal tunnel syndrome.
