      Good product, helps with writing

      My son has always had difficulty putting his thoughts to paper, even though he can describe what he should write in great detail. This product helps him immensely with putting the words to paper, since all he has to do is talk and the words appear in the word processing program. The reason this product did not get 5 stars is that I could not install it on the computer I had intended it for. Instead, I had to install it on a different computer, one my son does not use for school, and I had to change compatibility settings to get it to install. Both of the computers use the Windows 10 operating system.

      Speak Right, Type Right!

      Make sure your computer meets the specified requirements to download this software! This Product is excellent! It gets to know the way you speak each time you use it, therefore it is progressive! The product gets better the more you use it! Type anything through speech recognition software. It is best that you study the aids provided so that you learn how to punctuate, start new sentences, make corrections, etc. a headset microphone is included in the box. Free yourself repetitive stress injuries from too much typing! Let your mouth do it for you!

      Not as good as I thought

      I read a lot of good reviews, which persuaded me to make the purchase. Unfortunately, I was left disappointed. I was attempting to use in MS Word, but the interface was not stable, and it was not at all plug and play, despite what was advertised. I admit some of it is user (me) error, but again, was hoping it would be intuitive and not require a steep learning curve. Once you get it working (finally), it does a decent job with standard vocabulary, but anything other then that is a real challenge.

      I bought the product for my autistic son who loves to write stories, but slow to type. I was extremely disappointed purchasing this product. The advertisement was very misleading making it very appealing to use. I didn't realize until I purchase the product how much requirement it has just to upload. I wasn't aware the Premium Edition was intended for students, appears that way, and I'm stuck with it since the product was already open. I will never recommend this product to anyone.

      Got this software for my wife for school (finishing her degree)... asked for verification of her student status. She sent in from her student email.... they didn't accept, had to send in student ID. Still didn't work! Called customer service, got verification process approved....Still couldn't get software downloaded (another department has to verify student status on their own before they approve code to download via web). Once downloaded, works great. Just getting to part to use it is difficult part!

      Dragon stop working without warning. Nuance is discontinuing service for Dragon because it is becoming obsolete do two installment of microphone Services through windows. If you want to continue with your dragon nuance services you will need to pay an additional $100 after cost of dragon equipment. Nuance is stating that they will not be giving customer services for equipment.

      Huge Help

      This was recommended by my graduate professor and my physical therapist after I did serious damage to my hand. I had two weeks left of my online class and two major papers due. This program made finishing my work a breeze as all I had to do was speak and it typed for me. It was a little hard to use initially and kept crashing but that was a computer issue. Over time, it "learned" and was much easier to use. 8 weeks later and I will still be using it for awhile as I recover from my injury. I'm using it to type this now!

      Product purchased was Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium, not the student/teacher edition. With a high quality microphone, recognition accuracy out of the box is remarkable. However, with training, earlier versions (I also have Version 9) achieve almost equal accuracy, and are more suitable for use with software such as Scrivener. One useful feature of both versions is the ability to transcribe dictation from approved digital recorders. I would definitely recommend this product.
