3.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Dictate for the Mac, 15 Dec 2012
By 
This review is from: Dragon Dictate 3.0 (Mac) (DVD-ROM)
On station I have had DragonDictateagonDictate forDictate a year or sor or so. or so that is actuallyually what DragonDictatectate is producingucing as I speak.

Yes, that is gobbledygook. But when DragonDictate gets itself into a bad mood it can produce complete nonsense. The only solution is to quit the program and restart. Since I have just done that you can see that when it is feeling okay it works well. But it is far from perfect. And my contact with Nuance suggests strongly that they have limited interest in the product. Even going so far as to release software update information with spelling mistakes. But it is the best dictation program that is available for the Mac and since it does speed things up, it is worth using. It still does curious things though from time to time. Failing to distinguish between dictation and command, it will sometimes curiously send the cursor on an adventure back through the dictated text looking for a particular word. It also has no facility to learn a particular word in a piece of text. If you have text you want to teach DragonDictate you have to create a Word file and upload it. Clumsy. And it still puts random characters at the end of sentences from time to time. Quite often the only way to get it to work properly is to quit the program and restart it. It is worth having but it is only worth three stars. Compared with other Mac software where the development teams, in my experience have been very interested in feedback, Nuance, seem to be only slightly interested in the product.
