Item Number: dragonprof12
Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Professional is the ideal solution for busy corporate professionals who want to work faster and smarter.

There’s no better way to boost productivity and reduce costs across the organization.
A Few New Features:
- Improved Accuracy : Dragon 12 delivers up to a 20% improvement in out-of-box accuracy compared to Dragon 11, which means you can get things done faster.
- Enhanced Experience with Gmail and Hotmail : Dragon 12 enhances the experience of using your voice with Gmail and Hotmail — offering Full Text Control and commands for the most frequent actions in Internet Explorer 9, Mozilla Firefox 12 or higher, and Google Chrome 16 or higher.
- Enhanced Bluetooth Support : Dragon 12 adds support for wideband Bluetooth wireless headset microphones. When it detects that the USB dongle of a certified microphone is plugged into the PC, Dragon 12 offers “Enhanced Bluetooth” as an audio source type and does not require a script reading to get started.
- Dragon Remote Microphone App for iOS and now Android : Dragon 12 lets you go wireless with an iOS or Android device and the free Dragon Remote Microphone App.
Time-Saving Voice Commands
- New Facebook and Twitter Commands: Users can easily update Facebook by saying “Post to Facebook”, “Post to Facebook [text],” or “Post that to Facebook.” Tweets are quickly captured by voice: a user selects dictated or typed text (via mouse or voice command), and says “Post that to Twitter.” Additional Twitter commands include “Tweet [text]” (English only) and “Post to Twitter [text].”
- New Text Formatting Commands: Formatting text is faster and easier with new commands and capabilities not found in versions 9 and 10.
- The new “Quote that” and “Bracket that” commands can be applied to the last utterance or current selection. In addition, the new “Empty Quotes” and “Empty Brackets” commands can be used if a customer knows ahead of time the next utterance should be quoted/bracketed.
- Microsoft Office 2010 commands: The French and German editions of Dragon 12 incorporate a broader variety of available commands.
Improved Correcting and Editing
- Handling Multiple Matches in Text: the ability to quickly and easily apply correcting, formatting and editing commands to one or all items when the command could apply to multiple instances of text. There is an “Undo all” command.
- More Usable Spelling Window: The Spelling Window (allowing users to type or spell out something Dragon was not able to transcribe) is now resizable horizontally and delivers more readable options for alternate words and phrases, making it easier for users to modify or correct text.
