Announcing Dragon NaturallySpeaking Version 12

  • Faster and more accurate due to the ability to disable unused voice commands and multiple processor enhancements.
  • New “Smart Format Rules” allows you to adjust formatting and word property rules on the fly when you correct a phrase capable of multiple formats (i.e. abbreviations, units of measure etc.).
  • Increase response time and customize voice controls with more options for clicking items by voice.
  • Save time with the automatic dictation box when you begin to dictate into a text field that does not have Full Text Control.
  • Import and export custom words that contain properties – very useful when transferring word lists between user profiles or vocabularies
  • AutoTranscribe enhancements with transcription output including Microsoft Word format and email notification when new files have been transcribed by Dragon.
  • Dragon may be installed on a Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 Ultimate Server in order to dictate remotely over a Remote Desktop Connection.
  • Turn off multiple text matches for those who find the pervasive numeric display of multiple matches an eyesore or contrary to workflow productivity.
  • Productivity enhancing commands and more!

Important Upgrade Advice and Notations

Speakeasy Solutions highly advises creating a new Dragon NaturallySpeaking Version 12 user profile, rather than using an upgraded/converted V10 or V11 user profile. This will yield best results with the software.

Export your custom commands and custom word lists from an upgraded user profile, importing these into a new Dragon NaturallySpeaking Version 12 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 Version 10, we highly encourage you to upgrade to Dragon NaturallySpeaking Version 12 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 NaturallySpeaking Version 12 upgrade in future or have to pay the price of Dragon NaturallySpeaking Version 13 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.
