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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
