    Much better than previous versions…, March 24, 2014

    I have been using Dragon Dictate for Mac since version 2.0 and I’ve used Dragon NaturallySpeaking for windows previous to that since version 7… When I switched to a Mac I was extremely frustrated with the unnatural commands and just that they were not very user-friendly and streamlined with the Windows versions. With version 4.0 this appears to have been fixed I’ve been using the program for about 12 hours of dictation time since yesterday… The accuracy is much improved and I have not experienced any errors whatsoever…

    I absolutely hated the last version… So far I am very pleased with the changes in usability and reliability of this version. If you contact Nuance directly if you are upgrading you may be able to get an upgrade for $99.

    Some information for potential buyers of Version 4., March 25, 2014
    By 

    This review is from: Dragon Dictate 4.0 (MAC) (Software)
    First, I agree with the previous reviewer that Version 3 was horrible. The recent upgrade to V3 was virtually little to no improvement to the original. I’ve used Dragon on PCs for over 12 years and been very satisfied. The Mac version was junk. I’ve found Nuance to be reputable in the past. Why they published versions prior to this Version 4 is beyond me. I hope the previous reviewer’s experience with V4 is a positive sign. I’ll be hoping to find an update of his initially positive review.

    Second, On checking the Dragon website they ask for $200 (rounded) for Version 4. However, shipping and sales taxes, which I’d have to pay, would negate any savings. If, like me, only a download is needed you can get that through Nuance (Digital River) and save on shipping (but you won’t get the disk or earphones.

    Third, Be sure you understand the return policies whoever you buy from. Typically software is not returnable. You probably won’t be able to return software for credit to Amazon (although I didn’t verify that) or other vendors. When I purchased from Nuance twice, I was able to get a refund both times. When I went to their site there was a pop-up window that offered a chat-session with a real person. Before purchasing the 2nd time I asked for, and received in an email, written assurances that I could return Dragon unconditionally in 30 days. Don’t be afraid to tell them you’re concerned about the negative ratings and experiences with Version 3 as justification for getting a return path. Nuance may be the only place that will refund, and you definitely want that option on a $200 product with a bad history that hasn’t proven itself yet.

    Fourth, Nuance has a Version 4 upgrade edition available for $150 (not $99/$100). It’s available to those who had either Versions 1, 2, or 3. And, they have the Student/ Teacher version for $130 (I expect that’s plus S&H + Tax.) There are other options also available through Nuance that you may want to check out.

    Fifth, After being burned on 2 purchases of Version 3, and Version 1 & 2 before that, I’m going to watch the reviews for a bit before jumping into what was a really bad experience before.

    Lastly, The 3-star rating for Version 4 was intended to be neutral at this time as I’ve not yet purchased, but did have some comments that might be helpful to others. The reduced price from Amazon for Version 3 (also available from Broderbund for $50) is no bargain whatever the price.

    Still a beta product. Not yet ready for sale., March 25, 2014

    This review is from: Dragon Dictate 4.0 (MAC) (Software)
    I have been using Nuance dictation products for over 10 years. I think that Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 for Windows is excellent, despite some clunky user interface design. But Dragon Dictate for Mac is in a class of its own for software bugs.

    The software does a pretty good job of following my voice and putting words on the screen. The problem starts any time the user wants to make a change. For example, if a user wants to add a couple of words in the middle of a sentence in a previous paragraph, placing the cursor there and then dictating might get correct words but incorrect placement or punctuation.

    – I have had instances where the inserted word wasn’t placed where the cursor was, but one or two words away.

    – Often Dragon adds an extra space or two before the inserted word and does not add a space after the inserted word.

    – If an insertion is not a full sentence, then sometimes Dragon will capitalize the first word as though it were a full sentence.

    – When inserting a full sentence, Dragon might not capitalize the first letter of the inserted sentence.

    – It doesn’t do new paragraphs correctly. If I put in a carriage return by hand and put the cursor on a new line, Dragon will insert two spaces before the first character on the line. Also, sometimes it will not capitalize the first word of that sentence.

    – Dragon will not capitalize the first word of each line in a list. Oddly, if a previous line in a list ends in a period then it will capitalize the first word of the next line.

    And so it goes. This becomes irritating very quickly because when the user makes corrections each correction requires further correction. You might find that this process is still faster than typing if you are a slow typist like me.

    Some readers may think that they will get used to these idiosyncrasies. Unfortunately the idiosyncrasies are different for each particular Mac program and are a problem even in Dragon’s own built-in text editor.

    You might wonder how Dragon could release a product with such obvious programming errors. It is easy to say that this software is not yet ready for sale and that the bugs need to be worked out. However, this is Dragon’s fourth release since 2010. If you wish to reward Nuance for its lackadaisical approach to writing software code, then please plunk down your $200.
