Dragon Dictate has been available in Australia and worldwide for a couple of weeks now and the flood of people upgrading from MacSpeech Dictate shows just how keen Mac users are for good voice recognition software like Dragon NaturallySpeaking for Windows. This short post is just a way for me to show you the very basics and the main reason why people buy this software. Simply, speech recognition lets you talk to your Mac and have it transcribe what you say. If you are a slow typist, your hands hurt when you type alot or you think faster than you type then this is the software for you. Take a look:

    That is quite impressive.

    However, isn’t the question about “training” the software to recognise individual voices.

    Hey Tim

    The software does not have to be trained but for best results it is always a good idea to do at least the initial training which takes less than five minutes and involves reading set paragraphs of text while Dragon Dictate listens. Once initial training is done Dragon is good to go. Recognition can be improved by undertaking further voice training and also by having the software review a selection of your documents and emails which helps it identify any words you use which are not included in the standard dictionary. Once identified they can be voice trained and will then always be available in your profile.

    Hope that helps.
