Fantastic, bluetooth enabled and responsive automity,
This review is from: Dragon NaturallySpeaking Preferred Wireless 10.0 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Incredibly responsive and accurate, this takes the old image of speech recognition software and blows it out of the water. Accurate, fast, and very quick to 'train', you will soon have this Dragon as a favourite and domesticated household pet.
You can browse the web by voice command, type emails, open and close virtually any programme and it comes with an incredibly good quality bluetooth headset.
It has an amazingly small boom microphone and speaker that sits comfortably, and snugly, against your ear with excellent sound reproduction with no distortion at high levels, always a sign of a good quality in ear headphone. It is also useful seperately as a bluetooth phone headset, so if your at all unsure about buying this programme, you will have this to keep and use long into the future. Battery care is simplicity itself, as it is charged via a mains plug, which is included, and gives up to 24 hours talktime from a single charge.
The best thing though for me is that I have set it up for my elderly mother, and she is now able to control the PC by voice, and has already mastered email via it. Amazing!
I dont think the PC would dare to say no to her!
So, in summary, a defibate buy from me, and a definate keeper in the stakes of the highlights of software 2009.
The only thing against it is the fact that you need to have a decent PC, with good memory capacity (2GB in my opinion needed to run it efficiently) as the Dragon is a hungry little beast, and needs lots of resources'.
Chances are that if you have a PC that is reasonably new though you will be fine.
