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.


Instead of a keyboard, use your voice to produce text. Speak your thoughts; then watch your words appear on screen in your favourite Mac applications – up to three times faster than typing. Customise Dragon Dictate for Mac with personal vocabulary and formatting preferences. Create custom voice commands so that Dragon Dictate works the way you work.


Dragon keeps up with users’ minds, instantly transforming ideas into text – with no typos. So you can focus on content instead of typing and spelling for higher quality, more detailed results.

For optimal convenience, you can stand up, pace or cross the room
– there’s no need to be tethered to your Mac when you use Dragon Dictate with an approved wireless headset (included in Dragon Dictate Wireless). Or choose the new Dragon Remote Microphone application which converts your iPhone or iPod touch into a wireless microphone via WiFi.


Tell your Mac what to do, like ”Reply to this message” or ”Open Microsoft Word” or “Jump to GoogleTM” to work faster and smarter. Create voice commands that automate complex workflows on your Mac.


Dragon Dictate for Mac was built to give you the experience you expect from your favourite Macintosh® applications – an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that dramatically boosts productivity. What’s more, Dragon Dictate for Mac works with Microsoft Word 2011 as well as your favourite Apple® applications, including Mail, iChat®, TextEdit, Pages®, Safari® and many more.
