Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 is Nuance's latest edition to the Dragon family of speech recognition products. As of July 27, 2014, Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium 13 is available via purchase and download direct from Nuance. It is unclear but Home Edition, which we seldom recommend, may be available from Nuance for download as well. We have no sightings of boxed products but expect boxes of Premium to appear early August. We are told to expect upgrades to Premium 13 approximately August 18.
Professional, and Legal 13 products are not yet available. They are scheduled for "later this year" so we are all left to guess. Perhaps late August, more likely in my opinion to actually be available in September, and if there are problems with Premium then it could be October. The Medical products are from a separate division, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 will likely be the primary product for practices of under 25 physicians for many months.
A review of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 will be posted early August.
Meanwhile dealers are trying to sell Release 12 stock so you may find unusually good prices on specific Release 12 products. All Release 12 products are either 12.5 DVD's or can be upgraded freely to 12.5.
Learn to use the advanced scripting capabilities of DNS 11, 12, and Dragon Medical Practice Edition. This is aimed at advanced users of the Medical, Professional and Legal products wishing to get the most from their product.
