What’s New?

The entire interface is revamped and is far more compact, taking up considerably less screen real estate.

A considerable boost in accuracy as a result of enhanced acoustic and language models with deep learning technology. TRANSLATION: the core is streamlined with new technology, resulting in a massive leap in attainable accuracy. (An upcoming blog post will discuss this in more detail for those who are interested.)

Support for internal microphones (in a quiet environment) is useful to some tablet or portable users.

Voice training is no longer necessary, however Speakeasy Solutions recommends its signature techniques for attaining 100% accuracy and contending with stubborn misrecognitions.

Improved performance of Dragon on lower specced machines. While Dragon functions on a single processor core now, Speakeasy Solutions highly recommends at least a dual core, and preferably a quad core. The new version is optimized specifically for i7 CPUs. 8 GB of RAM absolute minimum (although will function on 4 GB, but this leaves little resources for other applications), and optimally 16 GB of RAM.

Multiple USB microphones now reside under 1 Dragon User Profile, rather than having to create a new or an additional user profile for a new USB microphone.

Chrome support accompanies the new version of Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 4. This is of considerable importance for users of web-based EMRs.

PC and App Compatibility

Speakeasy Solutions suggests the following optimal PC specifications:

  • Windows 7 64-bit OS or Windows 10 64-bit OS
  • i7 quad core CPU
  • 16 GB DDR3-1600 RAM
  • Solid State Drive

Application compatibility:

  • Windows OS: 10, 8, 7
  • MS Office Desktop Installation: 2016, 2013, 2010
  • MS Office 365 Online: Basic text control only. There is NO support for Office voice commands, and NO support for Dragon’s full text control (the ability to edit & correct text by voice).
  • Internet Explorer 11, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome
