Will this device work well with Dragon Speech 9.0 software or will I have to purchase the Mac version? I'd buy it if the speech libraries will sync.

    Does not. The pen records speech (and handwriting) but there's no easy way to turn the recorded speech to text, if that's what you're after.

  • I have not had great luck with it recognizing speech with any of the Dragon products (tested on:Dragon Naturally speaking v9-11.5 on windows7, MacSpeach, and Dragon Dictate v2 for Mac). mostly do to dragon not being trained to the voice on the recorder (ex. my professors voice) also dragon does not automatically add commas and periods and items such as these. I'm sure it could be use as a dicta-phone on either the mac or windows version of dragon if it is trained to the voice being recorded and the person says comma and period...when needed.
