1-0 out of 5 stars Dragon Point and Speak vers. 3.52
Can't get it to work - does mike not work? NO HELP from Dr agon Co. Who owns it now?

5-0 out of 5 stars I use this to type around 40 pages per day
Dragon seems to be an undiscovered tool. It allows me to dictate consultation notes and business letters in copious quantities without the expense of a typist or what would surely turn into a carpal tunnel syndrome. It's faster than using a typist as the turnaround time is instant.

It's not perfect. I frequently have to use the mouse and the keyboard for absolute accuracy, but it beats typing by far. You can train unusual words in no time. It's only 99 dollars and worth a shot. You have to have a computer of greater than 750 mH with at least 128 RAM.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great program but needs top of the line computer
Dragon NaturallySpeaking software is, in my opinion, the best speech recognition software on the market (and you pay for the fact). It is highly accurate, especially if you speak clearly, and is easy to train. Even corrections and navigation are easy to do entirely via voice commands. If you do a lot of writing, even if you're a fast typist, it will save you time and definitely wrist discomfort. There are drawbacks, however. It needs a fast processor and lots of RAM. I have a Pentium II 366 with 128 RAM and it's all it can do to handle the program. I got the standard version hoping to use it in different applications, but I really can't because then too much of the RAM is used and it's too slow and makes more mistakes and sometimes locks up the computer. I end up just dictating in the included notepad and then cutting and pasting. This is fine, but I should have gotten the basic version for that instead of spending the money on the standard version. If you have the latest and greatest computer then you may be all right. Another problem is that the included microphone picks up every background noise, so you must use it in an absolutely quiet environment.

5-0 out of 5 stars 99% accuracy! The best!
This is the best speech recognition program ever. Must have. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very satisfied
I bought version 6 rather than 7 from the comments of Amazon customers.

In years' past,I was a rapid 10 finger typist. But a year ago,I sustained a spinal cord injury causing numbness to my fingers.

With this software, I can type with an accuracy approaching what I could do when healthy. What I find remarkable is that, being Canadian, I tend to talk fast and slur a bit. Still, I find I can consistently achieve close to 90% accuracy.

One warning: this software needs a reasonably up to date computer. Those who comment negatively I suspect maybe installed their software on antiquated hardware.

If you have a good computer you should be able to install and up and running within half hour.

A tip: I got my software cheap on EBay- $50 cdn=$35 US. Again, get version 6 not 7.

1-0 out of 5 stars If you think upgrading, forget it!
I am running both German and English versions 4.0 and thought upgrading to 6.0 with Windows XP would be a good idea. Forget it! The program froze! I uninstalled and then reinstalled. Now, it would't accept the product key printed on the box. There is no support. I send the product back, losing [the cost of] S&H.
If you buy, you are in for a rough ride!

1-0 out of 5 stars Please do not ignore reading this!!!
If you are planning on buying any of ScanSoft's Dragon NaturallySpeaking software, I would urge you to first visit their website...to read up on their pricing scheme for tech support.

I quote, "You may contact ScanSoft Technical Support by email through the support section of this web site. Fill out a Problem Report Form and a response will be sent in a timely manner upon receipt. Each incident entered from the Problem Report Form with be charged $9.95. Email is a lower cost option to telephone support."

Nine dollars and ninety-five cents to get them to answer your tech support questions on their products?!?

But that's not the worst of it. Notice the last sentence of that quote. "Email is a lower cost option to telephone support."

Is it ever.

I quote further, "One free technical incident" support call per customer is allowed, each "Additional incidents $[money] each"; that's [money]cents for each additional call!

Consider yourself lucky, version 5 users don't even get the first free call.

So what does this mean? It means that if you don't get all of your problems solved in one phone call, or, heaven forbid, you have a problem somewhere down the line, you get the privilege of paying ScanSoft ...for any tech support you might need getting their product to run (and that's per call).

I wish you luck if you go ahead and buy this product; but please, don't just take my word for what I'm writing...do yourself a favor and check out their website for yourself first.

4-0 out of 5 stars Assist for persons with disabilities
I have the original DragonNaturally Speaking. Although it worked fairly well, I found I spent as much time and effort -through keyboard and mouse correction - as I would in typing text. Version 6 is easier to use, makes fewer errors, and requires less correction. As a wannabe novelist, I find any voice recognition program inhibits creativity, especially when there are others within hearing range. As a person with a disability, I find DNS-v6 very helpful in letter and e-mail writing. Version 6 definitely requires less keyboard and mouse correction, although that is still a concern. I like the correction boxes which present corrections in bold print. This definitely reduces correction time. ... Read more

But with ViaVoice for Mac, even such tasks as an overdue report or the letter you owe Aunt Edna can become faster, easier, and a lot more interesting.

2-0 out of 5 stars not for handicaps
This software was useless to me. I am handicap but with 'good' speech. It could not recognize my speech.

The headset which comes with this product is made in China. It is too small for a 'average sized' American male with average length of hair.

All sound functions of the Mac are disabled by this software.

Native Spanish speakers were able to use this [speaking English].

5-0 out of 5 stars Talk about a killer app!
Why is this application not in headlines everywhere? It is absolutely astounding, almost like magic. Like the box says, "revolutionary, not evolutionary." I decided to give it a try after seeing that it won Macworld 2000 "best of show" this year.I think this product signals the beginning of a whole new era in user interface. Just amazing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent software, approaching perfection.
I found this software beyond reproach. In only one day I was writing letters to people with about 95% accuracy. Since then it has improved to about 99%. This is a very smart piece of software that improves itself constantly, becoming ever more accurate. The secret is to put on a voice like that of a documentary host, speaking clearly and learning to accentuate your words properly. Since getting this software I have increased my own linguistic ability. Unless you like to speak gutter slang and slur your words you will find this software to be a real time-saver.

2-0 out of 5 stars I said, "Below" not "Be Low" average...
I will make this short and sweet. I had high hopes in this software cuz I have to retype lots of text, some at 6 pt. size. So, rather than using Omnipage, I thought buying this software would be the answer to my prayers, read the paragraphs, cutting time and saving my fingertips. I come to realize that this software still makes many mistakes and I find myself spending more time proof-reading the document word for word, looking for mistaken words. I spent more time correcting the software's errors, so many, I felt I could have saved my $80 and a whole lot of time typing the materials in for myself. I found that OmniPage OCR actually had less errors than this Soft Where... I said "Software" !

4-0 out of 5 stars Beyond Mere Novelty, Short Of Pure Utility
While Apple has offered ambitious attempts of its own at system-level speech recognition on the Macintosh for several years and even at present, it has been wise to promote IBM's entry into the Mac space. IBM has renowned chops in the voice rec department and proves it admirably with ViaVoice for Mac 1.0.

Initial training of the application requires a certain amount of diligence but is eventually rewarded by a remarkable accuracy and flexibility in the transcription process. It will require some patience and a conscientious effort by the user to accommodate the very complex nature of computer-based voice recognition. We may be but a year from 2001, but ViaVoice will not turn your computer into 'HAL' by any estimation. A combination of careful speech and fingers close to the keyboard may prove to be the most practical strategy when using this product.

It should also be noted that--as is ever the case with CPU-intensive applications such as ViaVoice--current-generation, high-performance hardware is recommended if not realistically required for optimal results.

No doubt ViaVoice will be improved in future versions, but this initial effort is already a marvel of software engineering. And it's a true 'Mac-savvy' product. I commend IBM for some fine work. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I am very impressed with this software. It is quite accurate and corrections are made quickly. I will tell you that it does take a few weeks to not only train the software but also to learn the commands; but once that is done, the program is EXCELLENT.

One other thing is that is says the required memory is 64MG RAM. Originally that was what we had and our machine would grind trying to run the program. We went out and purchased more memory and the program runs swiftly. No grinding. Smooth.

Absolutely great product for those with nerve damage in their back, carpal tunnel, or any other medical issues that might effect the use of your arms. The program is also great for those who may not type fast. It types as fast as you speak!

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun And Useful But Not Perfect
I found this product easy to install and easy to get up and running after it walked me through a 5-minute reading process so that it could "learn" my voice. It even came with a microphone for my computer. While I'm a fairly proficient typist, I still enjoyed watching the computer do all the work for me (like any good computer program should do).

I did note that the program missed one or two words in most sentences. I will have to play with it longer to see if "training" it will actually improve the accuracy. While these words can be easily corrected in the pop-up box that you can verbally call up, it tends to slow down the process, making this product of questionable value for good typists. While I probably make more typing mistakes, they are more quickly corrected during manual typing than with the use of this program. Those who "hunt and peck" however will very likely find this program worthwhile. So far I have found that it tends to be more accurate if I give it short sentences, or if I feed it about five or six words at a time. I try to give it enough information in each sentence segment so that it can change words based on the context of the sentence. Also by giving it smaller segments I noted that they are easier to correct in the pop-up box.

For the price - this program is worth the money. It's fun to use even if slower than if I had typed the document myself. My final verdict on its usefulness for proficient typists is not in yet, as I need to give it a better workout and see if it "learns" to be more accurate. In the mean time I'm ready to sit back and have some fun watching it do most of the work for me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buyers Be Ware...
I had bought this software for two reasons. 1.I'm a bad typist and thought that by using this software, I would have to not have to use the keyboard as much and 2. Because someone had left a good review about this software!

Now for the bad news, I tried to install the software and it was deffective! I tried calling the tech. support help line, which is not a toll free 800 number. They were unable to help me. They told me that they would send an email to a higher up tech support member about my problem and get back to me the next day! Guess what I never heard from them again, the following week I called the same toll number! I asked the operator to connect me with a person in charge over technical support, I of course received a recording and left my telephone number. I still have not heard from this person either! So buyers please be ware! I am greatly displeased with there service and I would not recommend them to anyone even my worst enemy!!! I will never buy anything from this company again!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars A little frustrating at first but great overall
When I got the program all I did was install it, read it a few paragraphs so that it could recognize my pronunciation and I was ready to go. At first it would type very little of what I said but after about a half an hour or so it was writing nearly everything correctly. It was about 99% accurate and I think with a little more getting used to I will be able to type anything much faster than before. You can control nearly every program on your desktop and even the internet (although the internet is a little difficult to master on the first day). I would definitely recommend this product to anyone on a tight budget but if you can, get one of the more expensive versions because more is included. But I am very happy with my product and will continue to use it and train it for many years to come. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars "Doesn't play well with others"
This is a quote I read somewhere regarding ViaVoice V.9 about its compatibility with other software on your Windows system. I got ViaVoice 9 up and running pretty quickly (and installed the mic after a bit of hassle due to Windows, not the software.) It does indeed recognize words well (though I'd have to put in a specialized dictionary of scientific terms like "proteomics" because ViaVoice thinks I said "show me your picks.") And it's fun hearing "Woodrow" the pencil-shaped cousin of the evil Clippy read in a voice borrowed from Stephen J. Hawkins.

But, though this works well in Speakpad, installing ViaVoice totally hosed my Microsoft Word, to the point I have to de-install the ViaVoice and HOPE I can get away without de-installing and re-installing Word. The software seems to change some kernel dll and this is NOT A GOOD THING.

If you need speech and read-back ability, and you can live with quirks like this, I'd say, it's a cheap way to get speech recognition software on your PC. (Might work for a budget-limited person with special needs.) But if you are going to dictate to Word or even USE Word without the speech, this is a no-no. Find another software package.

1-0 out of 5 stars Unusable Product
This product is a total disaster. The ratio of correctly translated words to words the software misinterprets is roughly 8:1 at best. In my estimation it is unusable. Stay away!

4-0 out of 5 stars ViaVoice 9 Standard Edition is a step up!
This is my third purchase of a ViaVoice product. The first two (Version 7, and Millenium Edition) were disappointing. I think it might have been because I didn't have a powerful enough processor with enough memory to run the application. The third try has been a charm! (I'm now running on a 500-Mhz, 256-Meg Pentium III.)

The installation was quick, easy, and straightforward. Based on other reviews (and experience with earlier releases), I expected 95-98% accuracy. My expectation was that the errors would be throughout the dictated document. To my surprise, they were localized to short phrases that were easily corrected, much easier than I found in earlier releases of the product.

I do have to be fairly consistent and clear in my speech, but I found that it adjusts to my own way of speaking quite well. What I was also surprised about was that I didn't have to speak each word with unnatural, uncomfortable distinction. I could speak as I normally do, in phrases rather than individual words. The tool does a great job of understanding what I'm trying to dictate.

My earlier experience required lots of mouse clicks after locating errors that had to be corrected. The current product can locate and correct errors through voice commands without having to touch the mouse or keyboard. I really found this to be significantly more productive than I expected. ...

Meet Marnee, the Totally Voice interactive speech assistant. With Marnee, you can put your keyboard and mouse aside and manage your appointments, to-do lists, and more--hands free. This voice-activated personal information manager can be loaded onto your PC or laptop and is a snap to use. All you need to do is ask your computer for information or tell it to perform a variety of tasks. Marnee recognizes your command and follows up with a verbal confirmation. Totally Voice lets you multitask to the max with minimum effort, freeing you to focus on the work that matters most.

Using Dragon Systems's Dragon NaturallySpeaking, a widely used speech engine, this program quickly trains Marnee to recognize your voice. Ask to schedule an appointment and consider it done; you'll also get a verbal confirmation. If you'd like a reminder, all you need to do is tell Marnee, and, at the scheduled time, you'll get a verbal reminder. Set your appointments and reminders far into the future or a few hours in advance.

Each time you begin working, a special screen shows you your appointments, callback list, e-mails, reminders, and to-do tasks for the day. You can also build interactive contact databases and to-do lists with Marnee's help. Then, all you need to do is dictate tasks to your computer. You can even have Marnee help with phone calls. Just say, "Get so-and-so at home," and Marnee accesses the phone number and dials it for you! The program also keeps a handy call log that you can update with your own call notes.

And if that's not enough, this cutting-edge program lets you dictate e-mail and reads it back to you. Marnee organizes e-mail, too. Totally Voice is compatible with several personal information managers, including Microsoft Outlook, and it will verbally walk you through basic functions, like sending an e-mail. It even comes with a headset, so Marnee can start working with you right away. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Science Fiction Becomes Reality with Totally Voice
This is a really exciting software product because besides being a very nicely designed contact and appointment manager with "to-do" list and "reminder" functions, it lets you do everything Totally by Voice. Now here's the best part: it's not just speech recognition (comes with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech engine) - your computer will start talking to you! When the Totally Voice program is installed and launched, every thing you ask or tell it will generate a verbal response. Sure you can have e-mails and addresses or phone numbers from your contact list read to you but you can also say "how do I send an e-mail?" and your computer will start talking and take you through the process interactively. You can schedule a "reminder" to meet someone for lunch and at the designated time, your computer will say "It's time to go meet Bob for lunch, you better get going".

Amazon.com Review

Say goodbye to carpal tunnel syndrome and hello to L&H Voice ExpressProfessional 5.0. This newly upgraded speech recognition software lets youdictate e-mail, create reports, and even surf the Web just by the sound of yourvoice.

Initially, the installation for Voice Express Professional 5.0 seemed abit daunting--the package comes complete with a "read me first" pamphlet,headphones, and a detailed user's guide. However, it seems that an easierstart-up process was on the developers' minds when they upgraded this product, so theinstallation itself was not so scary. After setting up our mike and creating ourspeaker profile, we were able to start dictating. Voice Express does offer theL&H Voice Express Café, an interactive learning center for new users.Take note, however, that you must have Shockwave installed on your computer touse this feature (the application will prompt you to install it if you haven'talready).

It is important to keep in mind that Voice Express only works with Windows-based applications. Still, if you are a fan of Word, Excel, and the restof the gang, you will be pleased to know that Voice Express is now fullyintegrated with Office 2000. The application even lets you send instantmessages, all without typing a word.

Because the software is trained torecognize your voice, you have to pay special attention to the positioning ofthe mike, which may take some time for new users to feel comfortable with. Itdid get a little frustrating having to adjust the mike whenever our heads movedor we took the headset off. However, although it may take some adjustment time,this application is fairly straightforward and quite useful for busyprofessionals. --Gisele Toueg ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I love it!
I upgraded from the advanced to the professional edition because I wanted to use the voice recorded macros. I use it on both my home computer and my notebook. The supplied microphone (not USB)worked great with my Gateway Solo laptop.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not For Laptops
I wish I could say that I was not typing this review, but rather dictating it. I have no clue how this product really performs, because I just found out from L&H technical support that the mic they provide does not work with laptops PC's. I am told that I need to purchase a USB mic that will cost an other $50.00, which they do not mention in their documentation. I am sure that this will hold true on all Voice Recognition products and not just L&H, but they should have been upfront with as customers. So, If you are thinking of purchasing this product make sure you purchase a USB mic that will not get interference from you laptop. I will write a follow up if I decide to get the other mic. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Concept, just a bit confusing to learn...
I purchased the Dragon NaturallyMobile system for dictating away from my office, and it has fulfilled all of my expectations. The unit is ergonomic, useful, compact, and fully capable. Further, with additional memory cards, its storage capacity is virtually unlimited. The only downside, in my opinion, is the intuitiveness of the download feature. Upon returning to the office, a one button download feature would be helpful. However, all things considered, this is an excellent product worthy of investigation by those professional who live and die by the dictaphone. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what you need with no frills.
The 'Essentials' version of Dragon Naturally Speaking 7 (DNS) has the core features but none of the extras. There is really no point in getting the 'standard version' over this as the standard version only has four extra features that you probably would not use much, if at all, anyway.

What matters here is that the speech recognition engine in DNS is excellent and quick to set up and use, and the core speech recognition engine is the same for all the DNS 7 variants. The time you put in through use to train it is time well spent, and you can speak at a normal pace with very high quality results. OK, if you try to use it in a noisy environment you will get problems, but use a bit of common sense and patience and you get great results.

If you want to use DNS with a dictation machine then you have to go for the 'Preferred or Professional' versions, likewise if you want to have your words read back to you (text to speech) But if you just want to do the basics such as dictating letters, essays, memos, or email, then DNS Essentials has all you need.

If you are spending your own money and don't really need the advanced features then go for DNS Essentials, if it is someone else's money, or you really need the extra advanced features then get the preferred or professional. Of course it helps to have a fast PC with more memory than the minimum specifications too! ... Read more
