Dragon 11 First Look

Posted by Darrell Hyatt on September 29, 2010

Hello welcome to the enabling abilities to appear podcast. I have started using Dragon Naturally Speaking version 11 which came out recently, in the time that I’ve been using it which I must admit is fairly brief at this point there are a few things that I thought would be of value to those of you who are Dragon users.

The first thing I found is that the recognition is greatly increased from version 10 which was very much better than previous versions. I also found if you are a previous user of version 9 or version 10 your user files can be directly imported over and used in Dragon 11 so you don’t have to re-train the software to be able to use it.

Previous versions that I’ve used have been the preferred version of the software with version 11 however, I’m using the professional version which has many more functions than the preferred version. One of which is I can save the audio file of my dictation to have someone else actually correct the dictation by listening to my audio as I dictated it.

This would be useful if you’re having someone else do your correction of your dictation, I would however like the ability to be able to separate the audio from the dictation and go ahead and then edit the audio file as a separate file it would make doing podcast much simpler because I could end up with the text as well as the audio file for the podcast itself all-in-one step.

But at this point that is not available Dragon 11 apparently works much better with portable recorders. I’m in the process of testing this particular feature at the moment and I will talk about that in a follow-up podcast which will be out shortly.

If you have any comments, questions or concerns please feel free to e-mail me at darrellh@enablingabilities.com you may also want to visit my website which is www.enablingabilities.com. Thank you very much.
