Solved Which Speech Recognition is best - Win 8.1 or Nuance Dragon

December 29, 2013 at 06:15:35
Specs: Windows 8.1
I recently purchased windows 8.1. Speech recognition is available free on this computer. Not knowing I had this, my husband bought me Nuance Dragon NaturallySpeaking premium edition speech recognition software. Is this a better program than what is standard on my system? Thanks for your time & expertise.

I've used neither but with some 64 bit OS's there's sometimes a problem with Dragon getting the audio set up:

Anyone know first hand before I send it back? If it's a higher quality I want to keep it before I spend anymore time learning it.Thanks for your reply.

✔ Best Answer
I don't know anyone who uses it.
Does it state as being Win8 compatible?

It'll be more sophisticated than Window's inbuilt software. Hence, a bit of a learning curve maybe.

A little outdated, but there's a review here, which may help give an overview of 'Dragon's' capabilities.
