Overall Satisfaction with Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition

Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition is available to members of staff subject to their work requirements (it is not available to staff who do not meet specific requirements). A number of my colleagues are required to produce minutes of meetings with a very fast turnaround and approval has been granted to those members of staff to use Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition as a means of improving efficiency and to ensure compliance with statutory deadlines in relation to publishing minutes of public proceedings.
  • Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition is extraordinarily helpful when it comes to transcribing recordings of official meetings, allowing the user to determine how much detail they wish to go into when transcribing meetings, veering from near verbatim to a summary of those proceedings.
  • Having developed a sophisticated personal profile, Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition is extremely good at recognising my voice and inserting the necessary punctuation and appropriate spelling with very little intervention on my part in correcting any errors.
  • As I sometimes use complex and technical language, Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition is very quick to recognise and replicate terms and technological phrases that I might use once these terms have been entered into my recognised vocabulary
  • Very occasionally there are certain words or phrases that Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition consistently fails to recognise despite trying to include these in my vocabulary. However, such instances are rare and are quickly rectified by using the "Spell That" command.
  • The repeated appearance of some dialogue boxes (notably the one that says "please say that again") can be somewhat irritating until these are turned off by making adjustments to the necessary settings.
  • On a few occasions I have had issues with my microphone not working and Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition becoming unstable because of compatibility issues with Windows 10.
  • The ability to turnaround minutes within statutory deadlines and/or performance target deadlines.
  • Being able to respond to a plethora of email correspondence in a very quick, timely and accurate fashion.
  • Being able to dictate when using other software applications to produce documentation such as meeting agendas for publication on the internet.
  • For those members of staff who have been given approval to use Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition, return for the organisation has been significantly improved efficiency in the time taken to turnaround work within very tight timescales.
  • It has allowed members of staff more time to proof read and correct documentation prior to publication.
  • It has promoted greater consistency in the "in-house" agenda & minute writing styles as it allows members of staff to amend and/or correct documentation quickly and easily to ensure consistency, should this be required.
I have previously used Adobe Acrobat Reader in other organisations and I found it to be very good. However, as I purchased Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition for home use, there was a considerable difference in the price between the two products. For both work and home use,I found that Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition meets all my requirements.

Do you think Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition delivers good value for the price?

My job requires that I produce lengthy and detailed minutes of meetings and Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition is absolutely ideally suited for this purpose. Notably, meetings are recorded and it is extremely easy to playback the recording of meetings while dictating notes. This is a remarkable saving in time and effort in producing minutes that might otherwise take a few days.

I cannot think of any scenario where it would be less appropriate to use Nuance Dragon Speech Recognition other than in a situation where it is not possible to dictate for whatever reason.
