Announcing Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2

  • Now includes over 90 medical specialty and subspecialty vocabularies.
  • Improved hidden mode functionality.
  • Windows 10 & Microsoft Office 2016 support.

More details are found on the main Dragon® Medical Practice Edition page.

Name & Licensing

Dragon® Medical version 10 was released in August 2008. Dragon® Medical Practice Edition was released in August 2011. Now, Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 is released in June 2013.

Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 is based on the Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 12 core.

Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 continues to be licensed per user (and not per machine), permitting up to 4 installations/activations per license.

Important Upgrade Advice and Notations

Speakeasy Solutions highly advises creating a new Dragon Medical Practice Edition user profile rather than using an upgraded/converted V10 or Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 1 user profile. This will yield best results with the software.

Export your custom commands and custom word lists before upgrading Dragon or after you have upgraded Dragon and your user profile. Import these into a new Dragon Medical Practice Edition user profile.

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

If you presently have Medical Version 10, we highly encourage you to upgrade to Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 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 Dragon Medical Practice Edition upgrade in future or have to pay the price of the next full Version (Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 3) when that is released; upgrades are only valid for the two previous versions.

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, avoiding additional charges.
