Premier speech-recognition for Windows 11 and 10.

Dragon Professional v16 empowers staff with a faster and more accurate way to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, or fill out form-based reports—in the office or on the road—all by voice. Use robust transcription tools to eliminate reliance on outsourced services. Or create and share powerful voice commands to shortcut repetitive, manual processes for additional productivity gains.

With Deep Learning technology, Dragon learns a single speaker's voice, achieving recognition accuracy unmatched by general-purpose speech recognition tools. This accuracy extends to users with accents or those working in open office or mobile environments. And for enterprise users, the Nuance Management Center easily deploys and centrally manages Dragon across the organization.

Built with accessibility requirements in mind

Dragon extends Windows 11’s stellar accessibility experience to document creation and command & control functionality. Mouse grid on multiple monitors, “play that back” audio of dictated text in the user’s voice, and sophisticated macro commands are just a few capabilities professionals with physical or cognitive disabilities enjoy.

Building on 25 years of expertise advancing speech-recognition technology, Dragon is globally recognized as a leader to help organizations of all sizes take full advantage of their workforce and help build an inclusive workplace.

Optimised for Windows 11

While fully Windows 10 compatible, Dragon Professional 16 has undergone a colossal, year-long rearchitecting and reengineering of its code to ensure optimization for the new Windows 11 operating system. A decided benefit to Nuance having been acquired by Microsoft in March of 2022 is the unprecedented access to Microsoft development assets it afforded the Dragon engineering team. The result is a Dragon that is ideally engineered for today and future-proofed for tomorrow by being supported on, certified, and optimized for Windows 11.
• Supports both Windows 11 and 10 operating systems
• Successfully leverages advancements made in Windows 11
• Aligns with the global migration of Windows PC infrastructure to Window 11

Best-in-class accessibility

Long known for its state-of-the-art adaptations for those with physical and cognitive disabilities, Dragon's latest upgrade furthers its commitment to the disability inclusion movement with new features like the ability to use Mouse Grid on multiple monitors. And built with accessibility requirements in mind, Dragon can be easily adapted as needed to meet the most stringent compliance requirements for accessibility or industry reporting. The new Dragon Professional 16 is perfect for helping organizations of all sizes take full advantage of their workforce and for building an inclusive workplace.
• Mouse Grid on multiple monitors is critical in increasing the efficiency for those with physical disabilities working with large amount of information

Support for the latest applications
