Dragon Dictate is a professional dictation software specifically designed for Mac OS X. With Dragon Dictate, you can interact with your Mac using only your voice, allowing you to create reports, emails, articles, books, research notes, and online content without the need for a keyboard. The software claims to have 99% accuracy, although it may not always live up to that claim. However, overall, Dragon Dictate offers good reproduction and accuracy.
One of the key features of Dragon Dictate is its ability to command your Mac to carry out certain functions using voice commands. For example, you can use voice commands like "Reply To This Message" when using email, or "Open Microsoft Word" or "Search Google for software". You can also customize Dragon Dictate with personal vocabulary and voice commands for specific tasks related to your work.
Dragon Dictate works with most microphones, including the one provided by the developer when you purchase the full version. While it works well with the Mac microphone, it can be prone to instability from time to time. Despite this, Dragon Dictate has the potential to significantly increase your productivity and is worth a try.
