1 out of 5 eggsWon't Install

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Basics

Pros: None.

Cons: Not only will it not install, the disc did not even appear in the DVD Drive. Just spins endlessly and locks up drive so it won't even open. I am installing on Windows 7 Ultimate Edition (64 bit)

Other Thoughts: This is very disappointing.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Impressed So Far!

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Basics

Pros: Accurate Affordable

Cons: Takes long to initially install and then load on each OS boot.

Other Thoughts: I have to say, I've been "playing around" with this software for the better part of the morning. I think I've got it running pretty smoothly currently. A strange happenstance however, the adapter cable that converts the Left and Right inputs from your headset was wired wrong. If I plugged the supplied headset into the supplied Y cable, the microphone circuit would be the speakers and I presume the speaker would be the microphone. I had to insert the peach connector into the tan Y-cable connector and vice versa.

Having said that, I have to say that this is a really nice program. I love that you can wear the headset and tell it to sleep or wake up with just your voice in order to enter data or not. It seems pretty accurate so far and I'm still learning to take my time, not mumble, and gather my thoughts before I start speaking but I think I'm getting the hang of it. I am determined to make this work as it seems like a really valuable alternative to typing, especially since I deal with carpal tunnel syndrome.

For some reason, my version is not working to type inside of Open Office docs, it uses a little window to "read" what I'm saying and then I have to say "click transfer" and it transfers the contents of that window into the Open Office doc. I am now downloading the update and seeing if that fixes it. Either way it's only an extra phrase of "click transfer" so it's no big deal really.
