Nuance announced Dragon Dictate 3 today, which is the latest addition to its lineup of Dictation software from Mac (Nuance purchased MacSpeech a few years ago, after MacSpeech began using Nuance’s speech engine).
With Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 speech recognition software, you can use your voice to create and edit text or interact with your favorite Mac applications. Far more than just speech-to-text, Dragon Dictate lets you create and edit documents, manage email, surf the Web, update social networks, and more – quickly, easily and accurately, all by voice. Open and close or navigate between applications, or even create your own custom voice commands to execute multiple steps with a simple word or phrase. Use your iPhone or iPod as a wireless microphone, or capture your notes on-the-go using a digital voice recorder and Dragon Dictate 3 will transcribe them for you.
With Mountain Lion now incorporating its own Speech-to-text engine (which also uses Nuance on the backend), the market would seem a lot more niche. However, there are die-hard Dragon Dictate users who will tell you nothing replaces the original.
Downloads of the product will begin Sept. 13, and boxed copies will be available starting Sept. 24.
