Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've read several user reviews of various Nuance products for Mac over the past hour or so. After reading those reviews I'm amazed that anyone would waste their money on this product. One user review made the statement (paraphrased) that Nuance clearly has no desire to make this product for Mac users really appealing or... it would be really appealing. Her statement made sense. However, as I became more familiar with my MacBook Pro, I learned that there's a very obvious reason for Nuance to not give a hoot about Dragon software for Mac. Mac has it's own dictation software that is built-in to the Mac. I used it without any instructions and with no microphone! It didn't work perfectly (I had no idea what the commands were), but it seemed to be better than what other reviewers were describing Nuance Dragon software. So I explored my Mac software commands and it's "so far, so good." I have one other comment about the Dragon/Nuance or whatever software. I've used that...
It's just amazing to me when a company's attitude is just "sc*** you." Sorry for the "French" but this product has been awful since the get-go. I was thrilled when Dragon took over, though Nuance is a pretty crummy company, judging by their IOS apps. But I bought 3 and though I didn't work well I soldiered on. But then no upgrade price to 4.0 and 4.0 doesn't run with the last three Mac systems. If you are a Mac user, avoid any Nuance programs until there is some signal that they give a damn about their customers and their products. Or maybe SIRI will get good enough we can just wave goodbye to Nuance with our longest digit.
I purchased this product with the hope it could transcribe my professionally recording podcast. I went through training the software and then let it run. The transcription was REALLY bad. Very normal words were wrongly transcribed and at one point it Even Started Doing This With Every Word!!
This is not ready for transcription. I use a Heil PR-40 (professional "top of the line" recording equipment) and process my files in Adobe Audition. So it can't get much cleaner. I processed uncompressed WAV files and the output was just REALLY poor.
Don't waste your time or money.
