: Check out the latest news section on Dragon's website (www.dragonsys.com) for a product announcement of new 3.0 version of their Naturally Speaking range.
: Some key enhancements:
: * Claimed improvement in accuracy of 25% over 2.0, but since that's already 95-98% I think they mean that errors are reduced by 25% (but what software company ever utters the 'e' word?)
: * active vocabulary enlarged to 62k words (not sure if this is all versions?)
: * better support for "natural language commands" eg. instead of "bold that" you can now say "make that bold" "bold the last paragraph" etc. Not entirely clear but looks like this might be restricted to MS Word97 and Corel WP8.
: * support for transcription from portable recording devices
: The product range has also been repackaged.
: Of most interest, the entry level product is now "Standard" not "Personal", AND it seems to contain most of the features in the old "Preferred", particularly the ability to dictate direct into applications.
: Ships end June or (for those like me stuck in UK) mid-July.
: I'd be very interested to hear feedback from early adopters on the other side of the pond...
