Dragon Dictate can even adapt its format rules by detecting your format corrections – abbreviations, numbers, and more — so your dictated text looks the way you want it to every time. Review your work with Dragon Dictate’s Text-to-Speech feature, which reads back editable text for easy proofing or multi-tasking.

After you finish dictating, simply transfer the text from the Express Editor to the desired application quickly and easily by voice.

What Customers Are Saying about Dragon Dictate 2

“I'm using Word 2011. It certainly performs flawlessly with this version. It stayed synchronized no matter what I tried on it. I used some formats that might be employed with templates. Perfect match, it stayed synchronized the entire time.”
  -Philip Blair

“I'm using Word 2011 and I even switched dictation sources in mid dictation and so far it worked great. I was even able to dictate this whole paragraph with Dragon Dictate and switch between Word 2011 and Firefox.”   -Jeremy Cash

“Rave: wow, is this fast. Very impressive. I just came over from 2.0 .3. Now, it appears to be quite stable and incredibly fast. Re: Microsoft Word, flawless! I've been unable to make it crash or lose it synchrony. It seems to know right word is at all times. An extremely fast and navigation as well.”   -Philip Blair

“It's so accurate, it's almost spooky. I think there is a little court reporter with a StenoGraph machine in there. I love the fact that I can mix voice commands and mouse clicks without my special tricks. Often, when I'm writing, I start typing then get on a roll where I can't keep up, even with my 100+ WPM Dvorak typing skills. I just flip on my mic, and start talking. Amazing. Just when I think it can't get more accurate, a new version surprises me. If you dried voice dictation in the Old Days (even 3 years ago) and found it lacking, you just have to give this a try.”   -George Silverman

“Really like Dragon Dictate 2.5, it's faster and more responsive. I like the compressed recognition window which avoids the acquisition of a lot of screen space when viewing alternative suggestions. One of my favorite features is the option to remove unused or problematic words from the preconfigured dictionary. That alone makes this update worthwhile.”   -Blair Donaldson
