Works Perfect! Easy to Register. 12/18/2013
This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Premium Student/Teacher Online Validation
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.
