Speakeasy Solutions is pleased to announce the release of its signature training materials:
The Dragon Training Workbook Version 15 for Dragon Professional Individual 15 and the upcoming Dragon Professional Group 15.
Speakeasy Solutions creates their own training materials for use with clients. With over 16 years working with medical, and legal professionals, as well as those with physical limitations, government, and corporate individuals, Speakeasy Solutions understands the need for productivity.
We teach the quickest and most efficient methods for using dictation technologies in your everyday use. We also teach a multitude of methods affecting a variety of results — dependent upon your preferences and needs. We skip sections and information that is not useful to you, focusing on knowledge that will enhance your experience.
Afterwards, the training materials become a resource for you to refer to whenever needed. Training materials are updated regularly, taking into account new versions, features, and updates.
Immediately after the release of Dragon® Professional Individual 15, our Microsoft Office 2010 clients reported a very curious bug.
Within both Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Word, the text displayed would appear jumbled, duplicated, or otherwise unreadable.
If Dragon is closed, the graphical display issue vanishes. Some clients found temporary relief in scrolling up and down through the Outlook or Word window. Regardless, this has been quite the showstopper for a number of our clients.
Speakeasy Solutions is pleased to announce the new versions, Dragon® Professional Individual 15 and Dragon® Legal Individual 15.
This notice does not cover Dragon® Medical Practice Edition or Dragon® Professional/Legal Group products.
As always, Speakeasy Solutions recommends the Dragon Professional products to its legal practitioners. The Dragon Legal products are geared towards American law and verbiage.
At long last, Speakeasy Solutions is pleased to announce the arrival of Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2.3. This patch provides complete support for the Windows 10 Operating System, as well as Microsoft Office 2016.
Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2.2 was previously mostly compatible with Windows 10, but everyone who holds a license for Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2.X is encouraged to install the patch. Please read below for further details and the important steps for applying this patch, available for free to those who hold a Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 license.
As an aside, with the release of this patch, it is highly unlikely that Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 3 is anywhere on the horizon at this point in time. For those of you who have been holding off purchasing Dragon® Medical Practice Edition due to wishing version 3, please be advised that the next version is seemingly quite distant in the future. As a reminder, the Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 3 that is available in Europe differs from the currently available version of Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 in North America.
The current version of Dragon® Medical Practice Edition in North America is version 2. The current version of Dragon® Medical Practice Edition in Europe is version 3. These are two slightly different products, and should not be confused. North America and Europe are on different tracks with respect to version numbering as well as the product itself. The substance of this post is in reference to the North American version.
Even though Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 has been available for a couple of years, version 3 is nowhere near on the horizon at this time. In fact, Nuance will be releasing an update to version 2.3 by the end of Summer 2016. While Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2, in its current state, is largely compatible with Windows 10, complete compatibility along with additional patches will be made available in the upcoming version 2.3.

Recently made available, Speakeasy Solutions announces the arrival of Dragon® for Mac® Medical Version 5.
The big news is that version 5 is now available for OS X El Capitan (10.11), and also has support for Word 2016.
The Express Editor (similar to Dragon Medical for PC’s Dictation Box) has been removed from version 5, and is replaced with the DragonPad, which allows for transferring of text into applications such as EMRs, web browsers, and so on.
And whatever happened to Dragon Premium?
It seems that there is a lot of confusion with respect to Nuance’s Dragon offerings these days for the PC. A variety of different products have been released over the last eight months. Some products have also been removed from the lineup. And of course, the features of the newly released products have also changed from their predecessors.
Below I will explore what is gone, what could leave soon, what is new, and how it applies to you. This article does not cover Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2, or the anticipated Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 3. Another article will cover the current status of Dragon® Medical Practice Edition.
