2 out of 5 eggsThis is the fourth version but still works like beta software.

Pros: It translates speech to words well

Cons: It does everything else poorly

Other Thoughts: I have been using Nuance dictation products for over 10 years. I think that Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 for Windows is excellent, despite some clunky user interface design. But Dragon Dictate for Mac is in a class of its own for software bugs.

The software does a pretty good job of following my voice and putting words on the screen. The problem starts any time the user wants to make a change. For example, if a user wants to add a couple of words in the middle of a sentence in a previous paragraph, placing the cursor there and then dictating might get correct words but incorrect placement or punctuation.

- I have had instances where the inserted word wasn't placed where the cursor was, but one or two words away.

- Often Dragon adds an extra space or two before the inserted word and does not add a space after the inserted word.

- If an insertion is not a full sentence, sometimes Dragon will capitalize the first word as though it were a full sentence.

- When inserting a full sentence, Dragon might not capitalize the first letter of the inserted sentence.

- It doesn't do new paragraphs correctly. After hitting a carriage return by hand the cursor will go to a new line, but Dragon will insert two spaces before the first character on that line. Also, sometimes it will not capitalize the first word of the new sentence.

- Dragon will not capitalize the first word of each line in a list. Oddly, if a previous line in a list ends in a period then it will capitalize the first word of the next line.

And so it goes. This becomes irritating very quickly because when the user makes corrections each correction requires further correction. You might find that this process is still faster than typing if you are a slow typist like me.

Some readers may think that they will get used to these idiosyncrasies. Unfortunately the idiosyncrasies are different for each particular Mac program and are a problem even in Dragon's own built-in text editor.

You might wonder how Dragon could release a product with such obvious programming errors. It is easy to say that this software is not yet ready for sale and that the bugs need to be worked out. However, this is Dragon's fourth release since 2010. If you wish to reward Nuance for its lackadaisical approach to writing software code, then please plunk down your $200.
