Less of an upgrade than I would have expected,
This review is from: Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 Home Edition (PC) (DVD-ROM)
As a long standing and very satisfied Dragon user, I found myself having to upgrade from v.9 Preferred after moving up to Win 7 64 Bit - Dragon 9 is not 64 bit compatible.
First the good news - the speech engine in Dragon 11 is clearly and significantly superior; and with only basic voice training plus a little regular use the recognition quality is very good.
(and I may be in the wrong here by not comparing like for like across the versions - but for the price paid for v.11 Home I expect to be able to.)
I seriously miss vocal playback in my own voice of what I have dictated when doing corrections.
An artificial voice simply reading what the software has written when I know it to be wrong is frustrating.
The other big frustration at the moment is the significantly shorter periods of dictation allowed by v.11 before the dictation limit is reached.
Is this because the better speech engine is more RAM intensive I wonder.
I feel that Nuance have sold us short in this version.
That said I would still recommend Dragon to any potential new 'two finger typists' looking for an easier way to get words onto paper.

first time anyone mentioned that audio playback is not available - this can matter a lot. What about the other versions?
