Any Dragon users over here?
I am mindful of maybe it just being my experience of things – but then again…
I’m running High Sierra, and the previous version of Dragon Dictate for Mac (v 5.0.5).
I might have upgraded, but then I started seeing quite negative feedback on their forums about the latest version, so decided to hold back, especially given the upgrade pricing…
Only for them to seemingly close the forum down, over at Nuance??
Granted, it was not a very positive place, given the negative views being shared regarding the product-line for the Mac, but it really left me in the dark.
And don’t get me started on how I struggled to confirm if V5 would work on Sierra, much less High Sierra - eventually, I gave up trying to reach them, and took the plunge…
When it works, it works well.
For a while. But then a Quit and Restart of it, generally fixes things.
But I have given up trying to do anything approaching complicated with it.
I cannot edit anything in the vocab anymore, with it crashing - but this is probably down to my not running the latest version…
I still find it better than the system dictation, which is not bad, but Dragon - hamstrung as my version is – still offers more features in terms of correcting words, spelling mode, capitalisation etc.
I basically only use it inside Scrivener, since trying it in Word was a mess.
Anyone else care to share some experiences?
I’m particularly interested in those running the new Dragon Professional Individual for Mac (essentially V6)?
Any major stability improvements i.r.o. Word, Outlook and Scrivener?
Was it worth the upgrade price?
