: : I bought this program trying to cut down on my typing if anything it seems to make me type more to correct problems with my recognition. I have tried all the training sessions as well as adding as I go but it does not seem to get better. Is the umgrade going to help or what I also wanted to know if you are going to change the format so that it will be able to be use outside the forur that it is currently set in. Will I be able to use it to open other windows like the IBM voice recognition allows???
: Well, I had those problems too initially, but the key is to have a good sound card, which makes all the difference in the world. I put in the Soundblaster 64 AWE Gold (not the Value model)- think is was about $190- and the recognition jumped dramatically. When I run the sound training module of NS it now shows "above average quality" for sound whereas before it was average. Also, I use it on a notebook which gives the same above average sound rating and it makes a huge difference. Two other keys are; 1. a good microphone, and 2. to keep the mike very close to your mouth, but just off to the side, about one-half inch from the side of your mouth.
: The IBM product, in my opinion, is a big waste of money. I've tried it and could recommend it to no one.
Question to "George":
I'm not clear on what you upgraded from? A Soundblaster AWE 64 Value? I ask because I was told by Dragon phone support that the AWE 64 Value was on par with the Gold. Is this not so? (The Soundblaster AWE 64 Value soundcard is significantly cheaper).
