I’ve used Dragon NaturallySpeaking to dictate blog posts on this site for more than a year. Overall, I get around a 97% to 98% word recognition rate – in other words, Dragon NaturallySpeaking gets 2 to 3 words wrong for every 100 words that I say.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking rarely goes on sale.
- On Black Friday, when most online retailers are slashing their prices, you could save $50 off of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5 Premium for one day only. (Of course, the link doesn’t work any more now.)
- On Cyber Monday, you could save $50 off of Dragon Dictate 2.5 – the coupon was only valid on one day.

If you’re not a teacher / student and you don’t qualify for academic pricing, this is the next best thing.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking has a 30 day complete refund policy so you can try the software risk free.
- The 30-Day Return Policy shows up when you’re entering your billing information in the check out cart: “Try it without risk for one full month. If you’re not completely satisfied simply return it within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll refund the complete purchase price.”

- Please confirm that this policy is still in effect. You can ask Nuance customer support when the pop-up window shows up on their webpage.
