We have reviewed all of the recent editions of Dragon, Nuance’s NaturallySpeaking programs, ever since version 8 came out and this latest iteration is setting the bar high again with 99% accuracy claimed.

As it is, my typing speed is reasonably high and very accurate (particularly with automatic spelling corrections enabled!).
For Dragon to claim that it is about three times as fast as typing, which is certainly true, this only is of value if you don’t have to make too many corrections….
So how did we go?
