Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 gets Australian release

Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice recognition software hits Australian shores

Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 voice recognition software has been released in Australia, with digital downloads available now and boxed versions of the application available from 28 August. NaturallySpeaking 12 is the first major new version of the core Dragon desktop software in two years following the launch of version 11 in July 2010.

Nuance says Dragon 12 is 20 per cent more accurate out-of-the-box than Dragon 11 (Dragon adapts to your vocabulary as you use the software), and the new software promises more than 100 new features.

Home users will appreciate Dragon 12’s improved Gmail and Hotmail support. Nuance says you can use Dragon to compose text as well as use the most frequent commands such as compose, write subject, and so on. The new Webmail feature requires Internet Explorer 9 or higher, Firefox 12 or higher, or Chrome 16 and up.

Dragon 12 also brings the remote Microphone app to Android devices, a version for iOS rolled out in 2011 alongside Dragon 11.5. The remote microphone app lets you give Dragon commands to your PC via your mobile handset when both devices are on the same Wi-Fi network.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 has an Australian RRP of $99.95 for the Home version; Premium, Professional and Legal versions are also available.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
