Version 11 brings together the best Dragon NaturallySpeaking® text-to-speech
and speech recognition technology to create the most accurate, easiest-to-use,
powerful speech recognition software ever! In addition to assisting users
to operate a computer hands-free, the software contains many new features

More Accurate Than Ever Before

to 99% accurate and frequently more accurate than typing. The model now
