Top New Features in Dragon Dictate for Mac 3

Even More Accurate

Improved Accuracy: Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 delivers a 15% improvement to out-of-the-box accuracy when compared to version 2.x. This means that Dragon understands you and you get things done, faster than ever. Dragon Dictate for Mac relies on the latest Dragon speech recognition engine (from Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12) and also samples higher quality audio in order to deliver unprecedented accuracy, so that what you say is what you get.

Faster Correction

Faster, More Advanced Correction : When it comes to making a correction, Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 makes it faster and easier than ever before. Simply speak to correct individual words or phrases through a single, easy to understand window. Select an alternate word choice or spell and train new words. Dragon Dictate includes a richer list of alternative word choices too, so when you do make a correction, it’s more likely that the word or phrase you intended will be presented as an option. And when you make a correction, Dragon learns, making it more accurate the more you use it.

More Control

Control in More Applications with Express Editor: Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 gives you control in more applications, so that you can use your voice to get more done. Dragon Dictate delivers an Express Editor so that you can dictate into a text field for which it does not have Full Text Control. After you finish dictating, you can transfer the text from the Express Editor to the desired application quickly and easily by voice.

Digital Voice Recorder Support

Transcription of Recorded Speech : It’s easy to transcribe your own recorded speech into text with Dragon Dictate for Mac 3. Simply establish a user profile for a digital voice recorderand have Dragon Dictate transcribe your recorded voice quickly and easily. Supports .wav, .m4a, .m4v, .mp4, .aif and .aiff audio file formats.

Dragon Recorder: If you don’t have a digital voice recorder available to you, use our free Dragon Recorder app to record your thoughts using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch (4th gen). Dragon Dictate will transcribe the recorded audio files when you are back at your Mac.

Your Words, Your Way

Smart Format Rules: Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 reaches out to you to adapt upon detecting your format corrections – abbreviations, numbers and more – so your dictated text looks the way you want it to every time.

Vocabulary Editor : With the ability to set alternative written forms of words or phrases (e.g. color vs. colour) in Dragon Dictate for Mac 3, you have more say over how your words appear.

Wideband Bluetooth Support

Enhanced Bluetooth Support : Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 adds support for wideband Bluetooth wireless headset microphones and you can get up and running quickly. When it detects that the USB dongle of a certified microphone is plugged into the Mac, Dragon Dictate offers “Enhanced Bluetooth” as an audio source type and does not require a script reading to get started.

Interactive Tutorial

Interactive Tutorial : Displayed at the end of profile creation and available at any time from the Help menu, the Interactive Tutorial in Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 offers short progressive simulations to help you practice good dictation, correction and editing habits so that you can create text efficiently within just a few minutes. Even experienced Dragon Dictate users can benefit from the Interactive Tutorial.

Dragon Dictate includes everything users need to get started, including a high quality headset.(Wireless and Mobile editions of Dragon Dictateare available as well. They respectively includea Bluetooth wireless headset and a digital voice recorder.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing program 2 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic program, quick and easy to install, calibrate and get going with. It seems to be capable of doing almost anything - you need never touch the key board again except to power up and log on. It speeds everything up, answering mail, composing any written material (there's lots it can do that I haven't figured out yet) and I'm certainly the rate-limiting step in the process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional piece of kit from my experience 11 May 2013
By J. Drew
I use this piece of kit on an Apple MacBook and find it an invaluable piece of kit for turning my speech into text. I personally find the accuracy excellent, the commands are also very helpful. I'm also using this piece of kit to support children with motor difficulties such as cerebral palsy to help them develop more effective abilities to communicate through writing using this piece of kit (where they can't use a pen effectively). Very useful and helpful. I'm very impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A massive improvement 15 Sep 2013
By Leo
Verified Purchase
This version is a massive improvement from version 2.5. I use this software withJabra 930 headset, and the accuracy is pretty impressive.

I was born in China, but the DragonDictate seems to be able to cope with my accent pretty okay. I did a complete the full voice training inside DragonDictate. I mainly use DragonDictate to compose emails and the reports. I also use Sony 712 dictaphone to transcribe reports and the letters, before sending it to my secretary for proofreading. Please note the DragonDictate can't transcribe MP3 files, but iTunes can convert MP3 into MP4.

Compared to the previous version, the tutorial is very useful and accuracy is very good.

One thing to note: a good microphone is absolutely essential. My previous cheap and cheerful configuration rather defeated the purpose of voice dictation, where I ended up manually editing the whole email.
