1 out of 5 eggsCan't Activate

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Home

Pros: None

Cons: Evidently this product must be activated by the seller before you can activate it online. When I found out that the store had not activated it at the time of purchase Nuance Refused to allow the product to be activated. They said I had to get the store to activate it or send them a copy of the receipt. Since the receipt was long gone by that time and I was not going to try and get the store to activate the product I threw the junk away.

Other Thoughts: I have never in over 30 years in the software field run into such a stupid activation procedure. The fact that Nuance had no interest in resolving the problem made sure that I will Never use their products in the future, nor will I recommend them.
If they require special handling they should Not sell their product at stores where the employees probably do not have any idea about it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat software

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Home

Pros: Haven't used naturallyspeaking since the days it was not owned by Nuance. That was about 10 years ago. This new version works fantastic.

Cons: PICE OF SHEET headset. Makes sure you buy your own.

Other Thoughts: If you haven't use voice dictation software recently you should give Dragon a chance.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't install; nothing but excuses from Nuance

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Home

Pros: None. Total unabashed piece of manure.

Cons: Won't even install.

Other Thoughts: Considering the many free online and cell phone voice recognition options, I expected this rather expensive program to work flawlessly.

Instead, I learned only after buying that it won't work with the built in microphone on my high-end (or any)laptop. Having to lug around a clunky headset diminishes its usefullness by 98%.

So I tried it with the included headset, which the program said would not work either, despite the fact that it worked fine with Windows Sound Recorder and Skype.

So I called Nuance, only to find out they offer no support on weekends. When I called on Monday (no toll-free support, by the way), I was told that a laptop's headset input isn't good enough, and I should get a USB headset adapter.

So I ordered a USB headset, which arrived today, plugged in the headset provided by Nuance, and was able to at least get the headset recognized. But the next step, to check the quality failed - twice. It says the quality of the microphone supplied with the program is insufficient. I give up!

1 out of 5 eggsNUANCE rebates are horribly slow

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Home

Pros: Cheap effective software for voice recognitions.

Cons: The rabate from december still hasn't been issued 4 months later.

Other Thoughts: If you buy this with a good coupon then it's a good deal. If you do the mythical free after rebate it's fairly obvious it's not a priority for them to ever get this sent out.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Home

Pros: This product works very well but it has to learn as you use it can take time to get it to work the way you want.

Cons: The Nuance Company had a rebate in Dec 2013 to buy this. I did so filled out the rebate paperwork was told it would take thirty days for the rebate from Dec 2013 here I am still waiting in april 22 2014. I came on newegg to get details so that I may file a complaint with the BBB department due to getting no where with Nuance via phone.

1 out of 5 eggsSleazy rebate processing

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Home

Pros: Producrt arrived

Cons: Rebate wrongly rejected.

Other Thoughts: I filed a rebate and received a confirmation, followed a week later by a postcard indicating that the rebate was rejected due to "*invalid purchase date." Of course, the package ID was not returned, and there was no provision to resubmit. The purchase date was within the rebate period. I have not observed this sort of rebate fraud for a while -- beware!

1 out of 5 eggsNuance Rebate.....

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Home

Pros: None

Cons: Hung system, Still waiting for my December rebate

Other Thoughts: I installed and it hung my Win7 system. I immediately uninstalled the software as it isn't essential.
I sent my rebate information in the week before Christmas. The rebate form said the rebate would be mailed within 8-10 weeks of the postmark date. This is 16 weeks and the rebate has yet to be mailed..... Won't buy from Nuance again....

5 out of 5 eggsGood product, excellent rebate service

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Home

Pros: I ordered the product for an older friend who is beginning to have some difficulty in typing. I was a little concerned that it would be too difficult to use because they are not very tech savvy but after the initial setup (which was a breeze even on older hardware) he took to it right away. The program once installed, is very intuitive and was very accurate in the dictation.

I did have a problem with my rebate being initially rejected but it took one 3 minute call to get the issue resolved. To be honest, it was my best experience with a Rebate customer service ever.

I highly recommend this product and will definitely purchase additionally copies.

Cons: Had to make a call to get the rebate resolved, but it was likely a Postal Service problem and not Nuance. Either way it was quickly and easily resolved. No complaints here.

Other Thoughts: I initially purchased the item just to help with writing e-mails but I heard back that he is even using some of the advanced features like opening and closing programs etc. I am really impressed with the ease of use of the program for non-techies.
