Dragon Professional v16

New Dragon Professional desktop software release

Dragon Professional v16

As of 28th February 2023, the long-awaited, new release in Nuance’s speech recognition range of desktop software is finally here.

Introducing Dragon Professional v16 Speech Recognition Software

Whilst Nuance – now a Microsoft company – has been focusing on the development of its powerful, cloud-based speech recognition solutions, such as Dragon Professional Anywhere and the industry-specific version; Dragon Legal Anywhere and Dragon Medical One - they have reaffirmed their commitment to continuing the desktop version of Dragon.

The desktop version of Dragon v16 is particularly useful for clients who require advanced accessibility functions and those who need more sophisticated tools to create voice commands and macros.

Version 16 now offers a more simplified product in the desktop software range.  Nuance has now discontinued Dragon Home and Dragon Professional Individual versions.  Dragon Professional v16 is now designed to be used by individuals, students and enterprises alike.
