far better than expected,
This review is from: Dragon NaturallySpeaking Standard 10.0 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I bought this product because I do a lot of Open University study at home. I opted for the cheap standard version because I was not expecting it to be particularly accurate. However I have been amazed by how few mistakes it makes. Even when it does make a mistake it is very easy to correct without using the keyboard at all, and the system genuinely seems to learn from its mistakes. When you correct it and then repeat the same word again it almost always get it right the second time and any future times. For £66, with a perfectly good headset microphone thrown in, this is a bargain, and if you do a lot of wordprocessing then it may just change your life!
I had no problems installing or registering the product on a laptop which cost £750 around nine months ago (ie: decent spec but nothing outrageous).My only caveat would be that I have a fairly neutral news reader type voice which I'm sure makes a difference. If you have a strong regional accent you may not have such a positive experience although you may well still be fine.
By the way, this review has been dictated into Dragon and I have only had to make two corrections.
