Dragon Professional 16We have all laughed at WhatsApp misinterpreting our spoken words, but when people need to dictate for business – especially if working in specialised areas like accounting, legal, medical or engineering – the time taken to correct that helps defeat the purpose of dictating in the first place. Speech recognition was once a very niche product – today, we use speech recognition daily in one way or another, whether on our mobile phone or an automated phone system. Nuance has now delivered its new Dragon Professional 16. It’s “One Dragon” to serve them all. Dragon has been delivering efficiency to customers for over 25 years. Version 16 delivers unparalleled speed, accuracy, and specialised vocabulary not available in built-in free tools to take your productivity to the next level. This new version is updated with an enhanced speech engine designed for the Windows 11 environment.

Time is one of our most valuable commodities. Dragon is a productivity tool that saves people time when creating documentation – we all talk faster than we can type. This is a great conversation to have with your customers to see if they have a need for greater efficiency in their business. Dragon is designed for people from solo practitioners to global organisations, aimed at professionals in document-intensive industries who want to create high-quality documentation as fast and efficiently as possible. It helps to reduce administrative overhead so they can focus on their client or business needs.

So how is Dragon Professional v16 raising the bar with a single solution that serves individuals and groups in every business sector? It’s designed to allow you to:

  • Achieve even better accuracy as Dragon continually adapts to your voice, so it gets more and more accurate;
  • Create custom words and commands to reflect your personal preferences;
  • Short-cut repetitive processes using simple voice commands.


Dragon Professional 16Fluent in the business of all sizes

One product for both individual and group deployments. Dragon is the professional speech recognition solution of choice for sectors such as financial services; law; health; education; and more.


Dragon Professional 16Superior speed and accuracy

Empower employees to dictate documents three times faster than typing with up to 99% recognition accuracy right from first use. Capturing information at the speed of thought allows busy professionals to free up time for other tasks.


Streamline repetitive or manual processes

Dragon makes it easy to automate tasks or repetitive short-cut steps. Use custom voice commands to insert standard boilerplate text or signatures into documents or create time-saving macros to automate multi-step workflows by voice. With the volume licenses, you can share these customisations across the organisation for efficiency gains.


Ready for where you’re headed

Built on a quarter-century of expertise, Dragon Professional v16 is optimised for Windows 11 and backwards-compatible with Windows 10. It is the premier speech recognition software for both front-end (live speech-to-text) and back-end (transcribed from pre-existing audio files) applications.


Nuance Deep Learning technology

With a next-generation speech engine powered by Nuance’s Deep Learning technology, Dragon achieves high recognition accuracy while dictating – even for users with accents or those working in open office or mobile environments, making it ideal for diverse workgroups and settings.


Less or no transcription time and costs

Reduce dependencies on outsourced transcription services or eliminate business transcription bottlenecks. With Dragon, transcribe audio files or voice files of another single speaker into text quickly and easily or use the Auto Transcribe Folder Agent (ATFA) to transcribe batch files of audio recordings.


Dragon Professional 16 is now available to order for individuals as an ESD (Electronic Software Download) or for organisations via network deployment in volume licensing. If you have customers already with volume agreements with current maintenance, they will already have access to the latest edition from their Nuance portal. Upgrades are available for existing customers of version 15, either for individuals or volume customers.
