    I had Dragon Dictate 11 on my PC and it worked good but then I got a iMac so I bought Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 it doesn't navigat I had Dragon Dictate 11 on my PC and it worked good but then I got a iMac so I bought Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 it doesn't navigate good at all horrible the dictate part works ok sometimes when I try to train my email address it puts a space in it sometimes other times instead of a @ it types at on my PC it would have a couple of different options for commands this one only has one for each command And the commands are all different than the one for PC this program is definitely not worth $200 and it definitely does not rate any stars I am a quadriplegic and I need a dictating program. Trying to use Dragon to dictate this review I have had numerous mistakes I am so disappointed in this program if you do not absolutely need a dictating program do not buy this. I am constantly having to use my nose to backspace and to retype and dragons support line has not been able to help me at all their excuses is that the Safari interface limits what Dragon can do all I got to say is this is a horrible program

    Am new to mac. Had Dragon Naturally Speaking 9.0 on my HP. While Dragon Dictate 3.0 does not have the functionality and accuracy o Am new to mac. Had Dragon Naturally Speaking 9.0 on my HP. While Dragon Dictate 3.0 does not have the functionality and accuracy of DNS 9.0, it is still light-years ahead of me typing entire documents from scratch. For me, it is easily worth the price because I still save countless hours by dictating, not typing. No matter what dictation software you use, you are going to have to proofread the document. A few more corrections is not a big deal to me. I'm hoping over time, they'll get it to the proficiency and functionality of DNS. In the meantime, I need DD 3.0.

    I use Dragon Dictate professionally. On the Microsoft Operating System, it is great to use. On the MAC, it is horrible. The cur I use Dragon Dictate professionally. On the Microsoft Operating System, it is great to use. On the MAC, it is horrible. The curser jumps around. The program inserts random letters and words. I took so long to correct the errors, that I went back to using in on my HP. Dragon is not ready for MAC. I think they should offer a money back guarantee for MAC users until they get it right. However, knowing Dragon, they will not do that. Instead they will offer you an update for another $200. I am a long time Dragon user, not a novice. They need to jerk it off the Mac market.

I switched to an iMac which which I love however Drag I have been using Dragon for the past 12 years on my PC without a problem. I switched to an iMac which which I love however Dragon does not work well within Microsoft Word or Outlook. When dictating the cursor moves around randomly jumbling your text, Inserting unwanted text, inserting punctuation in the wrong places and you wind up spending just as much time fixing it as you do dictating. Software support is no help as they give the same solutions of remove and reinstall but the same problems keep occurring. Several blog comments also describe the problem however there is no solution yet. Perhaps it will be a bug fix in the future but as of right now I would not recommend this product as it is very expensive and can be quite frustrating. If you don't use Word or Outlook, I would recommended this product.
