"Dragon Dicate for Mac is CRAP!!!!!!!!!!"

Dragon Dictate for Mac is horrible!!!!!!! It's so inaccurate and slow that it actually takes me longer to dictate copy than to just type it myself. You constantly have to go back to what it's written to check not only spelling but that it used the correct words for that sentence (e.g., write vs. right).

And to add insult to injury, when you think you've removed the application from your computer, the plug-ins are still there, popping up every time you click on a webpage, asking if you want to allow Dictate to work transcribe on that site. A real annoyance.

The so-called User Manual of course has no information on how to correctly remove the app and its plug-ins, and Nuance's website has no support link to go to for help.

This app was horrible when it first came out and it still is. The manufacturer's claims are mostly hyperbole and they know it, ergo there's no way to contact them for help or to complain about this overpriced product.

Avoid it!

Pros
  • Nothing
Cons
  • Instructions on how to completely remove the app including all plug-ins.
  • Accuracy and speed.
