Nuance has incorporated their next generation “Deep Learning” speech engine into their latest release, Dragon Professional Individual version 15.
The speech and accuracy increases are quite astonishing. The software includes new transcription features, broader application support, optimisation for popular touchscreen PCs, and contextual guidance tailored to your usage.
Next generation “Deep Learning” speech engine
With over 2000 voice and language scientists dedicated innovating and developing new features, Dragon introduces “deep learning” technology and adaptation techniques that continuously adjust to your voice, even if you have an accent or if you’re in an environment where there are slight background noises. Version 15 is up to 10% more accurate than the previous version, right out of the box, with no training required
Advanced formatting and impressive recognition improvements
Version 15 delivers laser sharp recognition results when dictating numbers, email addresses, and place names based on how we normally speak, resulting in effortless post editing corrections.
Optimised for Windows 10 touchscreen PCs
Dragon is fully optimised for use with today’s popular Windows 10 touchscreen laptops, tablets, and mobile devices with hybrid touch and keyboard interaction modes. Work just as efficiently whether on the move or in the office.
Faster and easier microphone setup
Dragon provides an improved user experience by simplifying the microphone selection process. Also, adding a new Mike source is faster and easier than ever with no additional training requirements.
Enriched user interface and experience
Dragon delivers an exceptional user experience that makes powerful features easier to discover and use such as an improved “options” menu, improve browser experience, and a super-fast start-up time.
The improved transcription process leverages all the accuracy improvements gained from the next-generation “deep learning” speech engine, while reducing the number of steps required to get your all your recordings transcribe. Training is no longer required for personal transcription, or for third-party transcription.
Exceptional web and application support
Dragon empowers you to work even more quickly and accurately by voice with support for enhanced dictation within the latest business applications such as WordPerfect X8 and Skype for business.
Valuable productivity tips and improved online help
Dragon offers new ways to accelerate proficiency by offering a wide array of enhanced tools to help you discover advanced Dragon features such as tutorial videos, productivity tips, browser help, and much more.
Dragon Professional Individual, v15 works with Windows 10, 8.1, seven (32 – and 64 – bit); Windows server 2012 R2 and 2008 R2.
You can now use Dragon without all the training. Only a quick microphone check is needed. You do have the option to enhance accuracy later by doing additional training or using included accuracy enhancing features. Dragon also gets smarter the more you use it.
