Premier speech-recognition for Windows 11 and 10.

Designed for knowledge workers and field employees in the private and public sectors, Dragon Professional v16 empowers professionals – whether sole practitioners or part of an enterprise – to create high-quality documentation faster and more efficiently, while saving time and money.

Today’s professionals are challenged with creating outstanding documents

And if not completed correctly or efficiently, this can hamper report quality, employee productivity, and increase costs and compliance risks. Dragon Professional v16 empowers staff with a faster and more accurate way to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, or fill out form-based reports—in the office or on the road—all by voice. Use robust transcription tools to eliminate reliance on outsourced services. Or create and share powerful voice commands to shortcut repetitive, manual processes for additional productivity gains. With Deep Learning technology, Dragon learns a single speakers voice, achieving recognition accuracy unmatched by general-purpose speech recognition tools. This accuracy extends to users with accents or those working in open office or mobile environments. And for enterprise users, the Nuance Management Center easily deploys and centrally manages Dragon across the organization.
Put your words to work — faster and smarter with professional grade dictation and transcription

Speed and simplify document creation

Don’t let heavy documentation demands impact productivity, costs, or client service. Dictate documents 3 times faster than typing with 99% recognition accuracy, right from the first use. And since documents are created in a fraction of the time it would take by typing, less time is allocated to paperwork, and more time on profitable tasks.

Streamline repetitive or manual processes

Having to type repetitive content or perform multi-step tasks is a drain on productivity. With its powerful voice command capabilities, Dragon makes it easy to automate these tasks. For example, create custom voice commands to insert standard boilerplate text or signatures into documents. Or create time-saving macros to automate multi-step workflows by voice. Once created, they can be shared with other Dragon users within the enterprise or department.

Add custom words to meet your unique needs

While Dragon comes with an expansive built-in vocabulary, it can also be personalized to include the industry-specific terms or acronyms your employees use daily. Once custom words or word lists have been created and added, share them across the user community.

Eliminate or reduce transcription time and costs

Reduce dependencies on outsourced transcription services or eliminate transcription bottlenecks. Using Dragon, employees can transcribe recorded notes or voice files of another single speaker into text quickly and easily back to the PC. Dragon’s Auto Transcribe Folder Agent (ATFA) also makes it easy to transcribe batch files of audio recordings for additional time and cost savings.

Improve mobile documentation and reporting

Dragon synchronizes user customizations* (i.e., an Auto-Text) with other Dragon clients across PC, iOS, and Android devices. This means mobile or field professionals can keep up with creating documents by using their customizations from any location. Use Dragon on popular touchscreen PCs, or sync with Dragon Anywhere Mobile, Nuance’s cloud-based, professional-grade mobile dictation app, and complete work wherever business takes you.

Built with accessibility requirements in mind

Dragon extends Windows 11’s stellar accessibility experience to document creation and command & control functionality. Mouse grid on multiple monitors, “play that back” audio of dictated text in the user’s voice, and sophisticated macro commands are just a few capabilities professionals with physical or cognitive disabilities enjoy. Building on 25-years of expertise advancing speech-recognition technology, Dragon is globally recognized as a leader to help organizations of all sizes take full advantage of their workforce and help build an inclusive workplace.

Central user administration made easy – even in hybrid environments

For enterprise deployments, the Nuance Management Center makes it easy to track employee usage of Dragon, redistribute licenses based on usage, and manage or share customizations, including custom words, commands, and auto-texts, across multiple users. Where Nuance’s cloud-native Dragon Professional Anywhere is deployed in a hybrid deployment, these capabilities can be shared between cloud-native and locally installed instances of Dragon.

Next-Generation Speech Technology, for Optimal Productivity

Dragon v16 is first designed for Windows 11 and supports Office 2021. It includes numerous updates and enhancements surrounding support for Microsoft Office like “Modern Comments” when editing documents, support for commands in Microsoft Teams, accessibility updates, enhanced support of Dragon for common hardware configurations, PowerMic 4 compatibility and support for WordPerfect 2021 (still prevalent in the legal sector).
