Nuance just released an update to Dragon for Mac yesterday. What’s more, I received a personal phone call from Jeff Lieman, the manager of Engineering at Nuance, encouraging me to try out and review the new version. He was very generous with his time and chatted with me about some of the new features of Dragon 6 and how Dragon are working with various companies to bring even better integration to Dragon. He was very concerned about the bugs that are in Dragon 6 and pretty keen to get them sorted ASAP. It sounds like the number of problems in the latest release caught them by surprise. He sounded concerned. But the proof will be in how well Nuance can get the bugs fixed and give us a stable working version.
I’ve installed 6.01. It’s crashed twice which is disappointing but better than it was last week. I’ll be giving it a good test drive over the next week – stay tuned for an update.
