Dragon 6

The upgraded version of Dragon Dictate (Dragon Professional) version 6 is due to be released any time soon. There are still many bugs in version 5 that the various upgrades have not fixed ye yet. Indeed many of them are a hang-over from version 4. What are the main bugs we need to test the new version for? Here is my list. Feel free to add any more. I will test it as soon as my pre-order is available! Continue reading ⟩

Today Dragon Dictate Version 5 (renamed “Dragon for Mac”) was released. It’s a major upgrade from Nuance who are the creators of Dragon Naturally Speaking. They have flagged the importance of this release with the name change from ‘Dragon Dictate’ to simply ‘Dragon for Mac’. It looks different and it feels different, my overall my initial response is… it’s the best and worst version of Dragon so far. Worst because it crashes a lot. The best because of the design and accuracy.

SUMMARY: 

The Good: Incredibly accurate. Fast. Looks great. Does not require significant time to be trained.

The Bad: Slow to Load. Problems with capitalisation and spacing.

The Ugly: Crashes a lot. Unstable. Does not work with Microsoft Office 2016.

dragon

The first three weeks of Yosemite has been painful because Dragon Dictate has not been working properly.   It would not read  my old profiles and would not let me train a new one without crashing. I rely fairly heavily on Dragon Dictate to do most of my  writing/typing  so this was a bit of a dud. I was going to write a post on a workaround for this problem, but Nuance released an update today – version 4.0.6 –  which fixes the problems. Training is working again and Dragon Dictate has stopped crashing.

Nuance should have had this all worked out before Yosemite was released, but at least we are back in business now.
