Hurry – This Sale Ends On October 16th, 2010

Have you ever considered trying speech to text software? Now is your chance to try out Nuance Dragon Speaking software version 10 for only $5 after rebate. Also included is a speech to text headphone with microphone which along is worth the price of only $5. However, there are some limitations that you should be aware of before you order.

The first question you may have does the software work? I am dictating this post using the software. With the software you must train the software to recognize your speech patterns. You must also speak slowly and clearly in order for it to work. The tutorial and built-in help menus that come with the software are helpful in training you the user. I am currently using the software running Windows 7 ultimate along with service pack number one beta.

I purchased this software at the beginning of 2010 which at the time also included a $30 rebate bringing the price down to $20. I had no issues getting the $30 rebate from the software company. Included with the software is a headphone and microphone which are comfortable to wear. Once I trained the software I experienced minimal speech to text problems. is the software 100% perfect? No. I would estimate that using the software is about 95% accurate or higher. Does it save me time? Yes. Was it worth the price? Yes. I personally believe that after the rebate the headphone and microphone combination alone is worth the five dollars price tag.

But there is one thing you should be aware of. After I purchased the software and register the software online, I provided both e-mail and home telephone number during registration. After I did this I was bombarded with e-mails and phone calls wanting me to upgrade to a newer version of the software. I was able to express my displeasure and annoyance to the company and the e-mails and phone calls ceased.

With this in mind I still would recommend this software to anyone who spends any amount of time typing online or using a word processing program. Your mileage may vary.

Free shipping is included.
