A big improvement, well worth the upgrade from v. 9.,
This review is from: Dragon NaturallySpeaking Preferred 10.0 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have used Dragon N. S. since version 9,
and am very pleased with this latest version.
I am running Windows XP, and had no big problems
Dragon 10 is far more accurate from the outset,
than the previous version, even before training.
The 'no frills' headset that comes packaged in
the box works brilliantly.
When I'm away from the PC I dictate into a voice
recorder, then have Dragon transcribe the recording,
and get great results.
One great benefit of using Dragon is the protection
from overuse of the keyboard resulting in RSI.
All in all, I highly rate this product, and it is a
worthy upgrade if you already have version 9.

I am very interested in the comment on using a voice recorder. I would find this exceptionally useful and would like to do this with Macspeech Dictate but Nuance tell me this is not currently possible (but it is possible to use a high quality radio mike, which is a fall back situation). I could buy Naturally Speaking plus a PC but am reluctant to do this without a better idea of the ins and outs. Is it possible to indicate what voice recorder was used plus any other relevant information? Many thanks. Derek H.

In reply to your question, I use an Olympus DS-3300.
In the Olympus's instruction manual, under operating
environment, the Macintosh is listed, along with
Windows, and works with Power Mac G3 500 MHz or
faster. iMac/ iBook/ eMac/ or PowerBook,
But, a note at the bottom of the page
states that the Macintosh version does not support
voice recognition software.
The recording format is DSS (Digital Speech Standard).
Here is a link to the manual:
Another recorder I have is the Olympus VN-2100PC,
and this has no support for the Mac.
Hope that helps.
