Dragon Dictate is a Speech recognition software specially for Macintosh by Nuance, the famous speech technology giant. With this software your can forget typing and start working with Speech Dictate with your speech. Now I know probably most of you have used many other speech recognition software and might not be satisfied with the accuracy they seems to be delivering for your speech. Dragon Dictate is famous for its accuracy and unlike other speech recognition softwares out there in the market this is a premier speech recognition solution just meant for Mac.
Lets talk more about its accuracy:
Just like I said, it’s astonishingly accurate, you just need to deliver the speech and wait to see the magic happen before you. More accurate and you get more productivity. But not everyone has a good speech, or at least, not the right accent. You need a bit of training to obtain the accurate result as you are look for. But let me add a point that no software is 100% accurate, it does make errors at some points, anything above 90% can be called as accurate. So it might also do that because sometimes your brain is confusing the terms and confusing the software. It works well enough even at moderate background noise and my microphone wasn’t that great too. Rest is up to you to try it and judge the accuracy.
Is it capable of commands?
Probably by now you already know that it can recognize the words you spell and fill the text in the doc, but you might want to know what else it can do apart from that. Apart from the above, it can even put your mighty mouse to a complete rest, because why to touch your mouse when you can actually do pretty much the main thing of selecting menus and options with a speech command. MacSpeech Dictate executes it for you. What’s more, MacSpeech Dictate understands key commands. With the XPress The Key’ and ‘Press The Key Combo’ commands, you can enter specific keys
and even keyboard modifiers like Command, Option, Shift, and Control. That makes you more productive and MacSpeech Dictate more intuitive.
Installation and Setup:
You might probably have installed a couple of software and know that some really suck at that part. But for Dragon dictate, this part isn’t a big, in-fact its extremely easy. The first step is to get the software onto your hard drive, followed by the vocabulary/grammar database. Once that is accomplished, you are almost ready to start talking to your computer.
