Dragon Professional benefits
One Dragon to serve them all
From solo practitioners to global organizations, professionals in document-intensive industries have long relied on Dragon speech recognition to create high‑quality documentation faster and more efficiently, reducing administrative overhead so they can focus on clients. Find out how Dragon Professional v16 is raising the bar with a single solution that serves individuals and groups in every sector of business.
Now serving the needs of both individual and group deployments, Dragon is the professional speech recognition solution of choice for sectors including financial services, education, and health and human services.
Built on a quarter-century of expertise, Dragon Professional v16 is optimized for Windows 11 and backwards-compatible to Windows 10. It is the premier speech recognition software for both front-end (live speech-to-text) and back-end (transcribed from pre-existing audio files) applications.
Empower employees to dictate documents 3 times faster than typing with up to 99% recognition accuracy, right from first use. Capturing information at the speed of thought allows busy professionals to reproduce details with specificity and immediacy while saving time they can spend on clients.
With a next‑generation speech engine powered by Nuance Deep Learning technology, Dragon achieves high recognition accuracy while dictating—even for users with accents or those working in open office or mobile environments, making it ideal for diverse workgroups and settings.
Dragon makes it easy to automate tasks or shortcut repetitive steps. Use custom voice commands to insert standard boilerplate text or signatures into documents or create time‑saving macros to automate multi‑step workflows by voice. Share these customizations across the Dragon user community for efficiency gains.
Reduce dependencies on outsourced transcription services or eliminate business transcription bottlenecks. With Dragon, transcribe audio files or voice files of another single speaker into text quickly and easily or use the Auto Transcribe Folder Agent (ATFA) to transcribe batch files of audio recordings.
