It’s been more than a year since we tried Dragon NatuallySpeaking (version 9) and the good news is that Nuance is ready to release Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 next week. This offers 20% more speech accuracy that version 9 or 40% when compared with version 8.
The most impressive feature, other than accuracy, is support for wireless Bluetooth microphones so you can dictate while you are several feet away from the computer.
Like previous versions, Nuance is not expected to provide a trial of NaturallySpeaking 10 software for download. You will have to buy either a Preferred or Professional version of DNS 10 to experience this software.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Preferred will cost $99.99 while the Dragon NaturallySpeaking Preferred 10 edition with USB Plantronics Calisto Bluetooth Headset will cost $199.99.
