As an user of Dragon NaturallySpeaking for about the last 10 years, and as most Dragon NaturallySpeaking users were, I wanted to upgrade to version 13 as soon as possible. Nuance, historically, has come out with better versions each time Dragon NaturallySpeaking has been released; always adding some additional functionality to the program that made it even more robust than before.
Ten (10) days ago, I downloaded the latest version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking and installed it on my PC. As a bona fide fan and advocate of Dragon NaturallySpeaking I was greatly looking forward to having the latest version installed in trying to take advantage of whatever new functions the application could provide, but what I found was disappointing.
While Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 has some improvements, the problem is that it also took away features that easily made the favorite of anyone using was recognition software.
