Wow. Excellent Accuracy but
I bought this software coz i had heard a lot about it, when i was in the US. Honestly i was hesitant whether it would work with my typical indian accent. To my pleasant surprise it gave me an accuracy of 98% but in Normal English. I do a lot of Legal Documentation, that is where i found the accuracy a bit less as it didnt understand legal terminology or legal phrases. After some research i found out that Dragon has a version for Legal fraternity called Dragon Legal. It costs me a whopping 37K...
Pros Class leading speech recognition accuracy Dictation wirelessly via Android & iOS apps Posts to social media, browses websites Adapts to writing & formatting style Cons Accuracy still drops in noiser environments Evolutionary, not revolutionary upgrade
I tried the DNS Home version before settling for the DNS Professional version. Both of these software are similar, where as the professional version gives you an edge if you are using the voice recorder.
When I used the DNS Home for the first time I got quite surprised since it recognized my voice with little training unlike the MS Speech Recognition. I do not have to talk in an artificial American accent rather an accent neutral voice would help you better longtime.
