Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Create documents, reports and emails three times faster than most people type with up to 99% accuracy, perfect for business and advanced PC users.

Includes Philips 7630 digital recorder for mobile dictation - up to 17 hours of recorded speech - Attach recorder to your PC, transfer the sound file and let Dragon automatically transcribe your dictation. Also includes a comfortable, high-quality noise-cancelling headset, or use with your own Nuance-approved Bluetooth headset.

Continued accuracy: Every time an individual uses Dragon and corrects their recognition errors, the software updates their user profile to enable better recognition accuracy over time.

Works With the Applications Users Already Have. Users can dictate directly into Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook Express and most other Microsoft Office applications running on Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows-Vista. Dragon also supports popular programs such as Corel WordPerfect, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and AOL. Users can even control menus and dialog boxes in these applications. Navigate the desktop by voice: launch or switch applications, save or print documents, and more - all by voice.

Add Custom Words and Voice Commands. Quickly add custom words, such as names, to the system's vocabulary. Create your own commands, such as "insert signature," and pre-set text and images will automatically appear in email and documents.

Easy Correction and Proofing. With "play back" feature, users can listen to their dictation while Dragon highlights the corresponding text on the screen for easy proofreading.

NEW Quick Voice Formatting commands allow users to issue a single voice command, to make editing and formatting text faster than ever. Unique Natural Language Commands mean users don't have to memorize complex instructions. In Word, for example, a user can say, "make that bigger," and the font size increases instantly.

Punctuation. Select the "Nothing but Speech" natural punctuation feature so that punctuation is automatically entered into documents and messages.

NEW Dragon Voice Shortcuts for Web Search make searching for information on the Web faster and easier. Just say "Search the Web for financial management resources," and Dragon will use the default search engine and default Web browser to enter the term in the search field and return the results. A user may also search specific sites using commands such as "Search Wikipedia for George Washington Carver," "Search eBay for Bluetooth headsets." Sites supported by Dragon Voice Shortcuts include Google, Yahoo, eBay, Wikipedia and more.

NEW Dragon Voice Shortcuts for Desktop Search allow users to quickly locate information on the PC -all by voice. For example, say "Search email for launch plans" and Dragon will complete the desktop search using Google desktop search or Windows Vista desktop search. Or command, "Find an email about the Robinson report," to open the top email.

Be Productive on the Go. Dictate into the digital recorder for automatic transcription when it is synched with a PC.

Easy to Use. Quick installation and no special script reading required. New on-screen help and tutorials help users become experts in no time.

Avoid Repetitive Strain Injuries by using your voice to control the PC and create documents.

3.0 out of 5 stars Talk to your pc.. 26 Feb 2009
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have given this a rating of three due to the amount of trouble I went through to the software in the first place. There are it seems known issues and the manufacturers website does have some instructions so look there if you have any difficulties to get the software loaded.

This package includes a Philips 7655 voice Tracer which is a higher spec version than that is mentioned in the product description. This is a great little device and records a clear voice recordings so you can dictate away from your PC.

Giving positive this software once installed works very well. There is a necessary "training" where you read prepared passages and the software gets used to your voice, then you are off and running. You can use this in Word or e-mails or in completing product reviews on Amazon as this review has been dictated using the Dragon software. So far in this review it has been necessary to change just one word which has been mistyped so I hope you will see that it is a very practical way to complete typed documents quickly and accurately.

I think that if the problems with the installation are solved this will certainly be a five-star package without any doubt.

(This review was dictated using the Dragon NaturallySpeaking preferred mobile 10.0 software and the microphone supplied with the package.)

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have used this for about 5 hours and feel confident enough to review the Dragon Naturally Speaking Preferred Version 10 Mobile Edition using the tape recorder it was supplied with instead of typing on the keyboard.
The software kit comes with a well designed Philips Digital Voice Tracer (I have just manually corrected tracer from traits). This is a small tape recorder also a USB connecting lead to connect this to a USB port on your computer. Additionally there is a headset which can use with the either the digital voice recorder although it has an inbuilt microphone as well and you can also use the headphones, obviously, to connect directly into your PC to do a direct recording into the Dragon Software.
It comes with three manuals a user guide to Dragon Naturally Speaking which is a very brief booklet about 30 pages, but also on a PDF large manual with the software or on line help

There is a manual for the software which you need to convert files from the portable recorder onto the computer that I didn't find too easy to understand. The files are recorded in a format ZVR which only be voice recorder understands you then have to convert it to a 16 BIT WAV file using the Voice Tracer software for it to be able to convert to text using the transcribe function.

All the above with 4 manual correction (PDF, ZVR, WAV and traits )was output to the Dragon Pad as a RTF file. I should have said "spell" PDF etc and I continue typing only because the software is far faster than my brain and uncomfortably long pauses were occurring although the Digital Voice Recorder will automatically stop if you stop speaking.

5.0 out of 5 stars dragon naturally speaking is good 13 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase
I brought this so I could create web content quicker whilst away from my PC and when relaxed but i havn't done much yet. However, it has figured out what i say, which is neat. I have given this 5 stars because its useful. However, a few words of warning, lol. first, this is useful because it has the recorder so you can dictate in the car and away from the pc, and then have the file converted to text. However, I brought this when I got Vista, and guess what? Vista has a voice recognition system thats as good as Dragon, the only thing it doesn't do is translate recordings..... yet. I think Dragon is ahead of the curve, but if your a part timer like me and dont want the recorder Vista is the free option, if you have it. Also, to translate files you have to connect the usb, fire up the voice tracker software and download the file within its ftp type interface and then convert it to wmv. THEN you have to open Dragon and convert the WMV to text. I thought from the product details that it 'automatically' converted audio files to text documents, which it doesn't. I thought that when you plug in the usb to the voice recorder that the software would automatically find your audio, convert it and put it some place convenient in your hard drive.

However, these two little things are not so important. the product works fine. now all i have to do is get motivated to use it.

Edit - Just to add, I hardly use this now. Its not so great when driving or out and about because of background noise, PLUS you sort of have to spend time reading what was said and correcting grammer. I find that its easier to type straight into the computer. This is useful for contractual stuff, or even legal proceedings, but for blogging its more time consuming that just typing straight from the keyboard.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
First up the usual caveats. No software runs perfectly on a machine with the minimum spec. It's always the case that the more powerful your machine the better the performance. That said, you don't need a total beast of a Machine to get very good performance out of Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 (DNS). If you have a dual core processor with a minimum of 1GB RAM it will run just fine.

Now, the big choice with DNS for most people is really between this Preferred Mobile version and the Standard version. If you are buying for your own use you won't want the Professional version as that is intended for corporate use, and if you are a student you'll probably be wanting to just get the most expensive version you can get a grant for.

Although all the versions of DNS share the same speech to text engine, and all are excellent at doing that job, what marks this version out is the inclusion of the Philips recorder as well as the software for converting the Philips audio format into the standard 16bit .wav format that DNS uses. The ability to use the Philips recorder away from your computer and bring back your words when you want to convert them to text is a real 'killer' feature that makes this version of DNS worth buying over the Standard one. That is, it does if you have the need or just want to work away from your computer regularly.

If you already have a recorder that you can connect to your PC and it can either use 16bit .wav or you have suitable software to convert to that format you can just buy the DNS Preferred version that does not come with the Philips recorder as the software will accommodate that. However, if like me you didn't have a suitable recorder then this Mobile package does come with everything you need and is very handy for it.
