I use DNS 9, and I'm happy to pay £32 to upgrade to DNS 10. Microphone included.

To anyone who tried the over-hyped early versions of this software, DNS 9 and 10 will come as a revelation. It is actually a usable tool - quicker and easier than typing.

Good deal. Obviously a misprice at Ebuyer. They have the 'Preferred' version for £60.32 delivered. Also a good price.

4.5% rebate at Quidco.

Tried it.. way back in the past, more recently, and again very recently........it just hates my voice, and I suspect anyone else with a more regional accent (even though mine is watered down with years of living elsewhere!

That's an education version though; not sure if they check!

They seem to work well with strong American accents. A pretty neutral English accent took quite a while to train. I use Dragon Medical Professional 9. Worth some silly amount of money and after years of training still gets lots wrong. It is great with medical words, but then again what else would words like pseudoxanthoma elasticum be translated as. It gets caught out all of the time with the and's and the of's and makes up garbage out of these, just infrequently enough to ensure that it was the time you did not check it and the garbage goes through. Anyone using it should know that it requires intensive mathematical calculations and hence an Intel processor. My AMD 1.87GHz duo core is far worse than my slower 1.7GHz celereon processor. I could not understand why until I did and extensive web search and found a few helpful forums. It also depends on the sound card and the microphone. The recommended ones cost hundreds of pounds. I use a cheap USB webcam from Lidl or Aldi so Silvercrest one and it works quite well as it bypasses the sound card and appears faster.

99% is great until you write a long passage of text and find that one word in 100 is wrong and you have not spotted it. My secretary finds it easier to have me dictate onto a tape and type it than to proof read and correct my Dragon. Digital dictations require a special foot pedal to rewind the speech. They also cost £100 plus. So a cheap dictation metod could cost hundreds and still only get 99% accuracy.

You have been warned.

The professional versions are significantly more accurate than the standard versions (They must be to justify the price)

eye will, thanks for the real life review.

I remember using an early version of IBMs voice recognition software, doctor needed to be pronounced as "duckter" and dot as "dat" for any kind of success. You had to speak at a strange tempo with an American accent that would put anybody to sleep.
Seems like things are getting better - not sure if I will throw more money at it untill I try a demo.
