Dragon for Mac Features

Click to read the specs from Nuance on their new Dragon for Mac 5. 

Or you can check out my own initial thoughts and review here.

Achieve even better accuracy
Dragon for Mac provides improved accuracy over version 4.x (15% out of the box accuracy improvement over v4 and a 35% increase over v3), with optimization for latest speech recognition technology and enhanced support for more accents.

Improved support for internal microphones for freedom and flexibility
Now you have enhanced accuracy in using microphones built into all MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac computers. You’re free to dictate documents and speak commands directly into your Mac without using a headset for optimal flexibility and convenience.

Sync with separate Dragon Anywhere mobile app
Dragon Anywhere is a separate, cloud-based app that provides continuous dictation capabilities, letting you create and edit documents of any length by voice—using your own customized words, shortcuts and commands—directly on your iOS or Android device. It adapts to your voice and terminology so you can dictate, edit, navigate and format quickly and accurately within your document from anywhere. Your documents, preferences and customizations can be synced with Dragon desktop offerings for seamless productivity wherever your job takes you. Gain immediate access to your dictation without having to wait or rely on a costly transcription service so can spend more time contributing to your bottom line and less time behind a desk completing administrative tasks.

Get enhanced support for more accents
Dragon for Mac offers improved recognition of Canadian, SE Asian, Indian, and Australian English accents.

Gain powerful voice control in Word 2016
Dragon for Mac provides support for Word 2016 with Full Text Control and built-in commands lets you effortlessly mix talking and typing

Save transcribed files as Microsoft Word documents
Transcription results can now be saved as .RTF or Microsoft Word format and opened in your application of choice. Previously, transcription results appeared in the Notepad, meaning you had to copy and paste them into your favorite application.

Enjoy a more intuitive user experience
Dragon for Mac appears in the OS X menu bar, making all features easily accessible from a single menu. You can now change profiles right from the menu as well as instantly access preferences and tools to improve recognition. Dragon for Mac features a newly redesigned Status Window, looking more modern and at home on OS X Yosemite, incorporates a new guidance feature which displays the most common next steps relative to the actions you’re taking at that moment, making it even easier to use.

Menu walking
Select items in any menu by voice. Menu walking lets you say “click File Menu” and the File menu opens, or say “click New File” and it works just like clicking a mouse.
