Developed by Nuance, Dragon Dictate is the Macintosh replica of Dragon Naturally Speaking, the popular PC voice recognition application. It is an amazing piece of software that allows its users to accurately dictate reports, spreadsheets, emails, and other documentation using only their voice. The user interface is very intuitive, and it is relatively easy to use given the complexity of what it is trying to achieve. It comes with a pretty good tutorial but does not necessarily require you to re-train yourself on how you speak. All you have to learn is how to say “full-stop” at the end of each sentence and “comma” where you want a comma. Other commands like “Begin quote” and “End quote” help to put quotation marks into a sentence. “Correct that” is what you say when you want to correct something, “new line” is the equivalent of hitting the return key. “Scratch that” will delete the last thing that you said. “Go to end” will go the end of the document most of the time, except on some few occasions. The commands will help to make your dictations reasonably quickly. The program also has a’ quick reference sheet’ of commands. Dragon Dictate for Mac is fully compatible with the latest applications like Microsoft Outlook 2016 and Microsoft Word 2016, Apple Keynote, Apple Pages, Apple Numbers, and Scrivener. It comes with Full-Text Control, for accurate voice-driven editing and command capabilities.
As exciting as this app sounds, sadly, it does not have a trial version. However, Nuance online store offers a 30-day money back guarantee. So if it doesn’t work, you are not stuck with it.
