Okay so obviously you do not write an article about Dragon NaturallySpeaking professional version 12, you speak it. So that’s exactly what I’m doing, and I’m not going to correct one thing so that you can see what type of accuracy were looking at.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking comes the reference card and the CD. The CD has a CD key in the reference card is a quick installation guide and a sample of some commands that are available for you to use right out of the box. The initial set up took about 20 minutes, and involved plugging in a USB headset that came with the system installing the CD, activating the software, and an 18 minute training session. The training session wasn’t too bad I read about 10 pages from Arthur C Clarke’s 3001 space Odyssey.
So far really like it, interacting with the web browsers is a little limited in that you can use it with Internet Explorer and Firefox but Google Chrome does not support some of the commands that Internet Explorer and Firefox does which is very odd because Google has a reputation for generally supporting everything. So for instance, you have to actually say to hit the corresponding function key for a universal command like refresh instead of saying it with Google’s chrome.

As of this moment, with the training it asked me to do, I would rate this a four out of 10 the Nuance Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional Edition version 12 is need to play with but I’m not sure that I could use in the production environment and I’m not sure that it’s worth the amount of money they’re asking for. I will continue to train the software for the next week and come back to this article with my findings after I’ve had a little more time to train it.
