User Reviews

’I’m using Word 2011. It certainly performs flawlessly with this version. It stayed synchronized no matter what I tried on it. I used some formats that might be employed with templates. Perfect match, it stayed synchronized the entire time.” – Philip Blair

“Rave: wow, is this fast. Very impressive. I just came over from 2.0 .3. Now, it appears to be quite stable and incredibly fast. Re: Microsoft Word, flawless! I’ve been unable to make it crash or lose it synchrony. It seems to know right word is at all times. An extremely fast and navigation as well.” –Philip Blair

“It’s so accurate, it’s almost spooky. I think there is a little court reporter with a StenoGraph machine in there. I love the fact that I can mix voice commands and mouse clicks without my special tricks. Often, when I’m writing, I start typing then get on a roll where I can’t keep up, even with my 100+ WPM Dvorak typing skills. I just flip on my mic, and start talking. Amazing. Just when I think it can’t get more accurate, a new version surprises me. If you dried voice dictation in the Old Days (even 3 years ago) and found it lacking, you just have to give this a try.” – George Silverman
