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.
