Dragon Professional 16

Are you looking for speech recognition that is hosted on your own servers? Or maybe for assistive reasons?

Look no further than Dragon Professional 16.

Released in February 2023, this is Nuance’s newest addition to the Dragon fleet. It is a replacement and improved version of Dragon Professional Individual.

Keep reading to find out if Dragon Professional 16 is the right fit for you, the benefits, and how it differs from its predecessor.

Is Dragon Professional 16 Right For Me?

Speech recognition is a valuable tool for pretty much anyone who types a fair amount; it helps you to get words on the screen in a quicker and more efficient way.

However, with so many different Dragon versions around, it can be tricky to find which one is right for you.

We recommend Dragon Professional 16 for:

  • Organisations that prefer/require on-premise technology – This version is hosted on your own servers as opposed to the other cloud versions.
  • Single users – If you are the only person needing a license (i.e. no colleagues or teams of people) then we would recommend this version.
  • Assistive users – If you have had an Access To Work assessment, your assessor will recommend this version. It is a great tool for people with a disability or who need support. Common use cases include Dyslexia, repetitive strain injury or multiple sclerosis.

Does either of these uses relate to you? You are in the right place!

What’s new with this version?

As we mentioned above, Dragon Professional 16 is a direct replacement for Dragon Professional Individual which is no longer available to purchase.

But are there any differences between the two and what improvements have been made?

  • Central management – Manage your users, reassign licenses, share customisations and track the usage and analytics of your users. A really helpful feature for monitoring ROI.
