Dragon Dictate 5 has been a part of my workflow since it’s release. Granted there’s a few features missing from it’s windows counterpart, transcription still needs working on but none the less it’s an improvement over 4. 5.0.2 brings fuller El-Cap compatibility and the correction choices window is now properly displayed.
Transcription is an incredibly handy way to save yourself some typing. Simply record a persons voice and let Dragon do the work of taken the spoken word and turning into text.
For some odd reason Nuance decided to drop Dragon Dictate 5 for Mac on a saturday. Anyways here’s a brief first look at the new speech recognition version for mac.
Nuance, the makers of Dragon dictate are just about to announce 5 new windows coming to Mac, iOS and Windows platforms. I’m liveblogging at things go along. Alas the page doesnt refresh so please check back.
Nuance has just announced the next major version of its Mac dictation software, Dragon Dictate 4. The new version improves recognition accuracy as well as several new features, including the ability to machine transcribe from a pre-recorded audio file. You no longer have to be recording a voice live to get transcription.
It is fair to say I’m a huge fan of speech recognition software especially when it works. The sheer amount of time and effort that can be saved with a decent bit of voice recognition kit is unbelievable. As a fan of Dragon Dictate for the Mac platform I’ve been waiting for ages to get my chance to review Dragon Express and finally that day has come.
Is the App store offering, retailing at half the price of its bigger brother, actually any good? We put Dragon Express for the Mac through some rather tough tests and see how well it intergrates with the daily routine. During the testing period we went between singing the praises of the Dragon Express to sheer and utter frustration
Dragon® Dictate® for Mac® 2.5 allows users to enter text and control their Mac by voice instead of using a keyboard and mouse. Turn ideas into text at the speed of thought so you can communicate more freely and persuasively. Just say words and watch them appear on the computer screen. Tell your Mac what to do and it obeys your commands.
At the EssentialMac.co.uk we use Dragon Dictate as a matter of course when reviewing. Personally I find that it helps articulate thoughts and ideas without the confines of a keyboard.
