Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional Edition

Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional Edition

Talk business to get work done faster

If you are a busy professional who spends a lot of time on a computer, you would want to be the most productive with all your computing tasks to fit more in your hectic day. Using a keyboard and mouse as your primary computer interface can be slow, require a lot of correction and cause stress and strain on your arms, neck or back, even if you are a fast typist. What if you had another way to interface with your computer that is natural, accurate and fast to boost your productivity potential?

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Professional enterprise-ready speech recognition software lets busy professionals get more done on their computer—quickly and accurately—using their voice. Dragon turns spoken words into text and executes voice commands up to three times faster than typing to drive new levels of productivity and cost savings.

Dictate 3x faster than typing, with up to 99% recognition accuracy right out of the box, providing a personalized voice-driven experience, learning words and phrases you use the most and delivering accurate results the more you use it.

Create command shortcuts

Create and share custom commands for repetitive tasks

Quickly insert frequently used text and graphics such as email signatures, logos, boilerplate text and more just by speaking a simple command for significant time-savings. Create and share custom commands easily across your practice. Using the Dragon 13 Legal Macro Recorder feature, you can easily automate repetitive or manual processes into one simple voice command, and share these customizations across your business.


Dictate on the go,
transcribe back at your PC

Dictate on the go, then transcribe your recordings. Record notes—anywhere, anytime—while they are still fresh in your mind. Use a Nuance-approved digital voice recorder for advanced recording functionality or the free Dragon Recorder app on your compatible iOS® device. Dragon will automatically transcribe the audio files to text back at your PC.

Enterprise ready

Enterprise-ready for large license deployments

Dragon 13 Professional provides security features, configuration options and administrative tools that make it easy to manage voice profiles, custom vocabularies and commands, feature access and multiple installations over a network. Administrators can obtain a recognition log file for each end-user, enabling them to gather rich, objective usage information. They can use this information to provide targeted advice for improving recognition accuracy and to measure return on the solution investment.

Simple to use

Easy to get started, easy to master. Providing fast, easy setup, helpful tutorials, and intuitive access to a rich and powerful feature set, Dragon 13 enables you to experience the benefits of speech recognition right away and realize ever-increasing productivity gains the more you use it.

Industry-speak made easy 

Dragon Professional’s vocabulary editor makes it easy to personalize with acronyms, proper names and other unique or business-specific phrases. In addition, import, export and share customized vocabularies across the enterprise.

Flexible microphone options

Headset-free. Wireless Bluetooth enabled. Voice recorder compatible. Dragon conveniently shows you which microphones are available to use with automatic microphone detection. You can also use multiple audio device types within the same profile. For example, you can use a USB mic at home, a wireless headset at work, or your laptop’s built-in mic or a voice recorder while on-the-go.

What people are saying about Dragon Professional

  • “Dragon NaturallySpeaking should be a mandatory purchase for everyone that wants to increase their productivity. Responding to e-mails, writing documents, developing Excel spreadsheets … things that took hours before, now take minutes.”
    Robert D.
  • “I’ve been using Dragon Professional for the last year to help me capture all of my thoughts in a way that allows me to free flow and later go back and edit. Dragon is a part of my window, it comes with me on the road, it’s here in my home office and I’ve recommended it to my colleagues. It helps me do what I do.”
    Frank Kenney, research director, Gartner, Inc
  • “I use Dragon to dictate my messages and don't even have to hit the enter key to send them. A simple "click Send" command is all it takes. The more my hands are off the keyboard, the less pain I have, both literally and figuratively.”
