4 out of 5 eggsDragon naturally speaking number 12 review

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 - Home w/ Headset

Pros: for me personally I've purchased several successions from number 10 to number 12, of Dragon naturally speaking in various forms. At this time I am using the premium edition to write this review. As much information as I need to share and decipher and with my lack of skills In typing this software for the most part has been a love-hate relationship from the beginning. Actually and in reality I can find more "cons" dealing with the program than any positive notations.Unfortunately I can't do without it, the observations of a long learning curve are correct though as time goes by you finally learn those idiosyncrasies of the program. I personally consistently practice reading magazine/Newspaper articles using Microsoft Word and storing them in folders for better accuracy and results. It is a fairly complex program, steep learning curve indeed if you intend to learn all of its attributes. Remember the saying when you first got into computers "garbage in, garbage out!" This is definitely the epitome of that saying.actually

Cons: here's a list of them that I'm willing to deal with!
1. This program will never be absolutely correct dealing with words that sound the same. An example the man's name Jerry and the woman's name Jeri.
2 definitely don't expect a tremendous amount of help from Nuance itself. Find the companies personal lack of help rather appalling.
3 Nuance is constantly upgrading, and towards the end of its useful life of the program certain issues and conflicts seem to bugger up the program so it no longer works correctly. As an example in the past certain upgrades to Adobe products have corrupted quite vigorously this program. I always take notes immediately after an upgrade of absolutely anything that I do,, to make sure this program is still working.

Other Thoughts: as I've said if I could type like a bandit I probably would think twice about this program and its need in my life.. But I definitely cannot deal very well without it on my PC. Times it's been hilariously enjoyable dealing with my thoughts and publish them on paper,, then there are days where I think nuance and Dragon Naturally Speaking is the demon of all software companies!

4 out of 5 eggsDNS 12

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 - Home w/ Headset

Pros: must have if you do a lot of dictatio

Cons: steep learning curve

Other Thoughts: Nuance seems to have a monopoly on the speech recognition market, but it is a very good product, somewhat bulky, the learning curve is somewhat steep, but once you've mastered that, it is a very handy programs own. I use it every day dictating emails and other text tasks. new answers very slow about remitting rebates, I am waiting for one now that is 30 days overdue.

1 out of 5 eggsRip-off rebate

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 - Home w/ Headset

Pros: None.

Cons: This was a Christmas present. Most rebates allow 30 days to file but this one is 7 days. The recipient did not return from the Holiday break until Jan 6 and did not try to install it until a couple of days later. The conditions of this rebate are like a trick test.

Other Thoughts: I hate the fact that manufacturers try to make getting a rebate as onerous as possible. This is certainly not a positive marketing tool! I feel ripped-off and will be disinclined to buy any Nuance products in the future.

They reserve 8 to 10 weeks to send you the rebate when all they have to do is process a batch after they have the buyer's data. Seems really lopsided!

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 - Home w/ Headset

Pros: Good at capturing exactly what you say. Actually not a bad speaking training tool as it catches "uhs" or any other little habits you have.

Cons: seems to react slowly to speech, disconcerting to watch while speaking, as the lag in typed words showing up will distract you. Better to just finish talking and then look at text.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 - Home w/ Headset

Pros: Easy Installation.
Got it for my wife and daughter who are two finger typer.

Cons: Headset with kit is junk. Will be replacing it with better one.
It did take a while to create a profile on 4 core 3.8 GHz AMD, 8 gig RAM machine with Hybrid SSHD.
May need pretty good machine to run this. I would not even try loading it on a laptop.

Other Thoughts: Got this with bundle deal @ $60. My daughter used it in school last year so gave it a shot. Newly build machine took very long time to build profile so installing on older machine may be painful to see it build profile. You shouldn't expect this to work on system running on dual core 32 bit system. Recommended spec is minimum so you'll need to double it. Throw it on 64 bit 8 gig RAM machine with 4 core. My wife is loving this product. She states that about every 4 sentences, she needs to correct few words but it is still learning her speech now.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Rebate

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 - Home w/ Headset

Pros: 1. can be a decent program once u know how to use it

Cons: 1. Been 3 months-Still no rebate as others mention

2. Resource hog

3. Large program-Takes up a lot of space on hd

4. Very hard to use/learn program

Other Thoughts: I don't recommend this software-Not worth the time trying to learn it-They made it difficult on purpose so they can charge u 30-40 bucks for a learning DVD. Stay away from this company!

1 out of 5 eggsLooking for a rebate? Don't count on it.

This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 - Home w/ Headset

Pros: Works as advertised.

Cons: Mic included is terrible.

Other Thoughts: Bought this with the intent of getting a good rebate that was going on at the time. Submitted all the requisite documents on time. Received a letter recently stating they were very sorry that the rebate submission was postmarked incorrectly and I was no longer eligible. This is conveniently (for them) the only thing I am incapable of proving. Would be happy to recommend this product to others but will not due to poor customer service and what I would deem shady dealings. Shameful.
