Good product. Easy to use. Much better than the version that I used many years ago. The box comes with a headphone set. Not blue tooth capable though.
Easy to install. No one knows how it will work with Windows 10 !! I guess even Nuance folks don’t know that!!
They should have a lot more video clips on their web site as tutorials. Or at least on the You tube. To learn some tips from others is painfully boring and time consuming. For example, they could have 10 common tips….or 10 common errors….10 tips for increased productivity….
I don’t expect Nuance folks to read this review but here it is anyway!
Love this, very easy to use and the install went better than I thought it would. After reading the reviews I was very worried that it wouldn’t work, but I didn’t have any previous programs, if you do you might want to lookup clean uninstall for dragon. It took me a bit to configure the microphone, but that was me. I tried the windows speech option and had no success, I was yelling into the microphone and just getting frustrated, with the new dragon it adapted to me and we work well together. Very happy with my purchase.
Amazon Customer –
I have two BIG problems with this purchase.
First, this is 13 Edition. The most current one is 15.3!!! What the hell? I am a Mac User who was forced to buy a new computer and this piece of software because these folks stopped supporting the Mac version. I had heard that the PC version was way more accurate than the Mac version, so that softened the blow. So far, I have not found this to be the case. Then shortly after I installed this on my new PC, I was informed by Nuance that I could get the newest version by paying an EXTRA $150!!! I was assured that version 15 was 25% more accurate than the one I had only just purchased — it is not!
Secondly, having bought the newest version, I am constantly (and I mean at least weekly) told that there is an update for it. In my business if I screw up or give an incomplete version of what I was paid to do, I can’t go back to my customer and say, ‘Sorry, I did only half the job, now here’s another 10% of it.’ Why can’t Nuance get it right the first time? On top of that it is a pain in the neck to start work only to find that you have to wait for an update to install.
I have used this software in one form or another for over 10 years and IT HAS NEVER LIVED UP TO ITS PROMISE. The only reason that I continue to use it is that there are no other viable options. If Apple ever gets their voice-to-text tech working, I will happily get out of the money pit that Nuance has become.
This software is sub-par by every measure.

I purchased this program back in September 2017. I LOVE the program. It’s great. But yesterday, the headset broke. I called Dragon to request a new one from them. They are trying to make me jump through TONS of hoops to provide proof of purchase despite the fact that I registered my product with them when it arrived. My headset/microphone is completely unusable as is. The technical support rep suggested that I purchase a new USB connection headset. Why? You would think that their headsets would last for more than six months, wouldn’t you? Very unhappy right now! Dragon, are you listening?
