OS X Mavericks' built-in Dictation feature got you down? The makers of Dragon Dictate have just released a big update to their Mac version, and this one even comes with the ability to transcribe text from any existing audio file as well.
Nuance today announced the release of Dragon Dictate for Mac 4, a significant update to the company's voice recognition software which also incorporates the transcription features from its discontinued MacSpeech Scribe application.
Dragon Dictate for Mac 4 promises faster and more accurate voice recognition powered by the latest speech technology Nuance has to offer. 64-bit support also allows the latest version to perform better and use memory more efficiently compared to earlier versions.
And it's not just about dictation: Dragon Dictate for Mac 4 now incorporates the powerful transcription features once offered by the company's MacSpeech Scribe, allowing single-speaker prerecorded audio from MP3, MP4, WAV and other formats to be quickly and accurately converted into editable text.
“We’ve invested even more in the latest version of Dragon Dictate for Mac to make it the fastest and most accurate voice recognition experience for Mac yet -- including customization and personalization capabilities that adapt to any customer’s unique way of working,” said Peter Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Nuance. “Combined with powerful transcription features, Dragon Dictate now offers the most complete voice experience on the Mac today.”
The English version of Dragon Dictate for Mac 4 is now available for $199.99 as a digital download from the Nuance website, with special upgrade pricing for current users of Dragon Dictate for Mac as well as registered MacSpeech Scribe users. Boxed copies of the software begin shipping on March 18.
