Dragon Dictate 5 has been a part of my workflow since it’s release. Granted there’s a few features missing from it’s windows counterpart, transcription still needs working on but none the less it’s an improvement over 4. 5.0.2 brings fuller El-Cap compatibility and the correction choices window is now properly displayed.
Transcription is an incredibly handy way to save yourself some typing. Simply record a persons voice and let Dragon do the work of taken the spoken word and turning into text.
Dragon Dictate has been developed to be even easier to use, to help users unleash their creativity and boost their productivity, whether they’re using Dragon for business or pleasure, and whether they’re new to Dragon or not. Highlights of the new version include:
Dragon® Dictate® for Mac® 2.5 allows users to enter text and control their Mac by voice instead of using a keyboard and mouse. Turn ideas into text at the speed of thought so you can communicate more freely and persuasively. Just say words and watch them appear on the computer screen. Tell your Mac what to do and it obeys your commands.
At the EssentialMac.co.uk we use Dragon Dictate as a matter of course when reviewing. Personally I find that it helps articulate thoughts and ideas without the confines of a keyboard.
It was many years ago that I first used the speed recognition software Dragon Dictation. Upon hearing about the world of speech recognition this was the making of a boy hood dream coming try, being able to tell my computer to do with the power of my voice alone.
