  • Additional general computer use commands for features you may frequently use
  • Full text control abilities & commands for Office 2010 & Writer
  • Mousing by voice easier with new commands

More detailed information can be found here.

Please note the following important UPGRADE information:

Speakeasy Solutions highly advises creating a new V11 Dragon user profile, rather than using an upgraded/converted V9 or V10 user profile. This will yield best results with the software.

You can make use of your custom commands and custom word lists from an upgraded user profile, and import these into a new V11 user profile (note: Preferred users cannot export their text commands).

Meeting the minimum PC specifications is imperative, but the best time to buy the upgrade is during the SPECIAL pricing period (even if you shelve the upgrade until you have a new computer).

If you presently have Version 9, we highly encourage you to upgrade to Version 11 now, even if you do not plan on using the upgrade immediately. Once the special pricing is over, you will pay the price of a regular V11 upgrade in future or have to pay the price of the full Version 12 when that is released (upgrades are only valid for the two previous versions).

If you have ever considered upgrading your microphone to a new device or wireless, now is the perfect time to consider such an upgrade — contact Alexandria to discuss current microphone offerings. See below for current specials on wireless!

You may receive an upgrade offer from Nuance. Please be aware that Canadian customs and brokerage fees will be added to any order from Nuance. We encourage you to therefore order directly from Speakeasy Solutions.

  • Dragon V11 (from V10 or V9) upgrade software

    If I have ver.10 can it be upgraded to ver.11 and if so will it work as well as the full ver.11.

    • admin says:

      Yes, version 10 can be upgraded to version 11. Version 11 is a better product than 10, but do take into consideration the minimum PC specifications. Cheers.

  2. Hank Van Riesen says:

    Does ver.10 work with Windows 7?


  3. UNF says:

    what is the version number in the ‘About’ window for v11 Premium when installed? Thanks.

    • admin says:

      We do not have Premium installed in our office, so I am sorry that I am unable to assist you in answering. Please contact Nuance tech support to know which precise version number is listed.

  4. UNF says:

    Do you have v11 Professional installed? What full version number is displayed in ‘About’?

    • admin says: But please be aware that this may be the pre-Gold or Gold version, and not what is shipping.

  5. Angelo says:

    I have Dragon 10 standard. Can i use the upgrade file to upgrade to dragon 11 preffered/premium. I am unsure if the upgrade will work with standard, as all the products i see dont mention standard….just premium/preffered. I dont want to purchase it then find out i needed preffered or premium 10 to upgrade.

    Thank you in advance.

    • admin says:

      There is no upgrade from standard, which is why it’s so cheap. You purchase it full each time you need it. The upgrade price for Premium/Preferred is also very close to the full box price of the same. The only Upgrades worth staying on top of are Professional, Medical and Legal.

  6. Preem Anand says:

    I have upgraded from version 10 to 11. The help file states

    In the Start menu, select Programs > Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.0 > Dragon NaturallySpeaking Tools > Upgrade Users. Dragon displays the User Profile Upgrade Wizard.

    I do not see the Upgrade Users option.

    • admin says:

      If you require support, we suggest contacting the vendor who supplied you with the upgrade (if it was Speakeasy Solutions Inc. let us know — please quote invoice number here if you wish) OR you may contact Nuance, the creators of Dragon, directly.

      Good luck and have a nice weekend.
