Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional Editions



For more than 10 years, Dragon NaturallySpeaking software has existed and offered the wonders of continuous speech recognition. As years have gone by, the main system has improved with better accuracy, faster speed, support for the latest computer software and as our computer technology and internet get smarter, so does Dragon Naturally Speaking.

Dragon Professional Edition has continued to evolve. The absolute latest edition is the Dragon Professional Edition v15 which is available in two flavors. Dragon Professional 15 Individual Edition and Dragon Professional 15 Group Edition.

While version 15 is the latest edition, there are some individuals whom still need older editions for support of older computers or in some cases, need the older editions to support their particular software environment or integration.

It's also important to note that each new edition of Dragon Professional has increased in accuracy by at least 10%. Therefore, if you started with Dragon 12 with 93% accuracy, Dragon 13 would give you 94% accuracy, Dragon 14 would give you 95% accuracy, Dragon 15 will give you 95.8% accuracy and so on. While the specific numbers here are not exact, every edition gets smarter, faster, more accurate and supports more current software of that time.
