1 out of 5 eggsCriminal

Pros: Contents of the box are as advertised.

Cons: My son got this product (student/teacher edition) as a gift in October, 2013. He has since been trying to get the code that will allow him to use it. He has used his student e-mail address as identification. He was asked for his transcript and has sent that. He is still waiting for the code to unlock the program. Nuance is impossible to work with and is even worse. There is no way to work with these companies and the Naturally Speaking product sits unused and it has been an absolute waste of money.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfect! Easy to Register.

Pros: Let's get the registration issue out of the way. If you really are a student or teacher, then you will have your registration key in 5 minutes or less. If you are not a teacher/student, then don't buy this version. I am a University of Phoenix "online" student. Answered around 6 questions before my registration key arrived. Easy.

My version 12 came with a USB headset. Not the best, but not the worst. The headset actually works well, and was recognized by my Windows 7 OS without issue. The microphone does not sit directly in front of my mouth, and I thought that would be an issue. It was not an issue.

The short story is this; I talk fast, and not very clearly. After reading 3 short paragraphs to optimize the software to my speaking style, I swear I can't get the software to make a mistake. I have no reason to blow wind up anyone's skirt. The software works great.

I am a doctoral student, and am getting ready to conduct my research study. Instead of paying around $2000 for someone to transcribe my interview recordings, I will "parrot" the interviews myself (listen, repeat sentence to Dragon, listen, lather, rinse, and repeat).

Final note: you can control your computer with this software. I did it for fun, but it was too much work. But you can give Word commands for example, like "press alt F", "click S", "type myfile", close word.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsBeware Licensing issues

Pros: The program generally does what it's supposed to, as long as you've got a solid mike and you're careful with enunciation.

Cons: Licensing is non-trivially awkward, especially for the student/teacher edition. Further, if you need to purchase this for multiple machines, the individual end users must activate each product key to obtain the serial number separately. This is because Nuance limits Academic purchases to one per person per 365 days. A fact that isn't on the box, wasn't in the item description, and wasn't mentioned in the activation process until after the error was flagged.

Other Thoughts: If one user wants this software installed on multiple devices, the Academic license is pretty clearly not an option for purchases after the first one.

1 out of 5 eggsDragon Naturally Speaking

Pros: none

Cons: does not work as advertised

Other Thoughts: After 4 hrs. of trying to get through the install/learning program I admitted defeat . Every paragraph I dictated after 2-3 sentences the program would stop and a window would pop up saying it didn't recognize what I was saying. Than I would have to X out the window, turn the mike back on, and start over. After 4 hrs. of this I quit, put it back in the box, and uninstalled the program, I would take it back, but it was a Christmas gift from out of state.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works well & validation was EZ

Pros: I'm very pleased with Dragon NaturallySpeaking premium student-teacher edition. I'm a teacher at a major university. I ordered the software through Newegg. It came promptly and it installed easily. It requires University validation but my email address being an .edu one was adequate. I've used Microsoft's speech software. Dragon 12 is many times better.

Cons: I couldn't find any. It requires a lot of storage memory and installed memory, RAM needs to be at least 2G. I have 8G.

1 out of 5 eggsActivation Issue

Pros: 5 Trial uses before being locked out

Cons: Activation Database with nuance requires corporate approval of a new serial and you must go through customer support which takes at least 30 minutes depending on how competent your representative is. Highly recommend not to waste your time with this new version.
