Still working through this, lots to learn.
Stephen Nicholl –
Product was the Spanish language version which had not been mentioned anywhere on the product description when purchased

Much improved since the original edition. With new technology it is now possible to download interviews from WAV or MP3 files and have the program “listen” to speech and produce usuals text. The user still must ensure that words like “where” and “wear” have been accurately transcribed. I estimate as saving of approximately 500 to 700 hours compared to previous interviews used to prepare a 350 page text.
After several attempts by me to install the product, I had two lengthy conversations with Nuance Technical Support. Their technician with my permission entered my computer and made several failed attempts to install the product for me. A few days later I made a further telephone request to Nuance Technical Support to launch the product and they seemed to have lost interest and suggested that I get someone locally with a knowledge of computers to start it for me. I have used computers at work and at home for about 30 years and during that time successfully installed issues 7-12 inc) successfully. I found the Nuance Technical Support staff, who spoke to me., to be incompetent and rude’. I made a third telephone request of Nuance Technical Support to start the product, but they seemed to have lost all interest. It appears that I need to give the product a rating before my submission is forwarded to you. My rating for it is zero.
I first tried DNS several years ago with the version 7 and found it to work fine, however, the user interface left much to be desired! Later, I had lots of trouble with the reinstalling after my computer crashed (not due to the speech recognition system) and I upgraded my computer and operating system. Recently, due to health reasons, I needed a replacement for my usual typing and tried the built-in speech recognition software in Windows 7. I found this extremely ineffective and so decided to try the Dragon speech recognition system once again.I purchased DNS version 13 home edition from from Amazon Canada. I simply couldn’t get the installation going successfully on my Dell laptop and emailed Dragon Systems support. Within 24 hours I received an email from them asking for more details and within hours of that I received an email response for an alternative method of installation.it involved installing from the hard drive rather than the DVD. The instructions were very clear for the most part and worked like a charm!
I found the new version to work a lot smoother than the earlier version 7. The software interface is vastly superior and user-friendly with excellent help files. Once set, without much training the dictation works nearly flawlessly; indeed I am using the software to dictate this! Very few errors, on some difficult words, capitalization at the beginning of sentences particularly when there is a pause in the dictation.overall I’m very happy with the performance of this extremely helpful software.
One problem that I experienced, although it may have nothing to do with Dragon system software was noticed in the Virtual machine (XP) that I use on my XP Pro OS. It Would not shut down normally. I had to figure out with the help of Microsoft online help files, but once done, XP has been working nicely.I suspect that this XP mishap was independent of Dragon software.
this was not a new product, it was a clearly used and likely stolen and damaged version. do not buy it. if negative stars could be given, I would give them. I received a beaten up product package, with a torn off security panel area on the bottom of it, and a disk with greasy fingerprints and scratches all over it. the headset appears to be the only part actually packaged in new condition in the box. shipping could not have caused the damages incurred to the product, only use in an unbalanced disk drive AND lack of cleaning afterwards could.
