Faster and more accurate than ever

Dragon Professional Individual, v15 expands the possibilities of speech recognition innovation with a next-generation speech engine, significantly increasing accuracy over previous versions. Dragon uniquely brings consistent, optimal accuracy to the PC, with Deep Learning technology and adaptation techniques that continuously adjust to your voice or environmental variations, even while you’re dictating.

  • Continuous learning—even during dictation—for individually adapted accuracy improvements that enhance the user experience
  • Optimal accuracy achieved for speakers with accents or in slight noisy environments such as in a cubicle environment

Formatting and other recognition improvements, for minimal editing

Dragon delivers improved recognition of number and email address formatting, hyperlink formatting in auto-texts, and place names based on how we naturally speak, resulting in fewer overall corrections. Examples include:

  • “three double two five” -> “3225”
  • “two point five million” -> “2.5 million”
  • “oh point five” -> “0.5”
  • “quarter of five” -> “4:45”
  • “eight pounds fifty” -> “£8.50”
  • “John dot Smith at Nuance dot com” -> [email protected]
  • Better overall handling of Roman numerals

Optimized for popular form factors such as touchscreens

Dragon is optimized for popular form factors such as portable touchscreen PCs so you can experience new levels of documentation productivity on the go. It’s great for today’s new PCs including highly mobile devices with hybrid touch and keyboard interaction modes. You’ll enjoy an:

Improved user interface and experience

Enhanced transcription

The enhanced transcription process leverages all the accuracy improvements gained from the stateof-the-art engine, while reducing the number of steps required to getting your audio recordings transcribed.

  • No training is required for transcription; you no longer need to initially transcribe and correct a short 90-second clip to achieve transcription accuracy
  • Acoustic and language model adaptation are automatically leveraged for the current user
  • No training is required for thirdparty transcription; there is also better separation of current user data versus third-party speaker data
  • If you will be frequently transcribing a particular thirdparty, the Help feature will guide you through creating a separate profile for that speaker
