Standing on the shoulders of previous generations brings about precarious and unpredictable challenges for emerging product platforms. You need to consider a spectrum of elements – a balance of continuity, innovation, brand affinity, reliability, and an ability to excite the user – to stay relevant and valuable in a constantly changing world.

In its latest iteration, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 stands tall and proud, emerging as the most accurate, fastest, and all-around best version of Dragon yet. While the central dogma of the use of Dragon remains the same, several new features have been added to make the Dragon experience even more engaging and productive.

For instance, for the first time, users are able to put down their headsets and engage with Dragon via built-in microphone, if so desired. Just think: you can cook dinner and edit your novel, write a report not sitting but standing, fold laundry and email your boss, all with the innate and inherent power of your own voice. Never before has Dragon been so natural, comfortable, or flexible.

In the age of computers, typing, desks and phone calls, we spend hours a day slouching in a desk chair, hunched over a keyboard. Working becomes not only mentally challenging, but physically taxing, as we contort our body into an unnatural hunch that our backs most certainly resent – not to mention our future selves. Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 enables us to break out of the literal work day slump and write emails, draft documents, and search the Web not with fingers moving on a keyboard and back slouching over a computer, but with voice.

Perhaps the most exciting thing about Dragon 13 is the complete experience it can offer you: voice command and control lets you interact with your computer in a comfortable, ergonomic way that enables you to work hands-free or to multitask. No longer bound by desk, chair, or keyboard, you are empowered to work how you want, where you want.

Dragon 13 also now comes with an enhanced, modern and intuitive user interface, mediating the ever-important relationship between human and technology and allowing you and Dragon to “get to know each other” with ease. Dragon 13 also features a new, contemporary user interface, faster profile setup, and significant improvements in web application support. The new Rich Internet Application support (RIA) leverages theW3C ARIA accessibility standard for the web and delivers more robust control of web applications Full Text Control in supported text fields for popular Internet applications like Gmail, Yahoo! Mail and Outlook.com. The new RIA support is compatible with, as well as the latest versions of the Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers.

The relationship between Dragon and user is entirely reciprocal: just as you learn Dragon, Dragon learns you. The Dragon experience is personalized, as it becomes more and more accurate by actually learning the words and phrases that you use the most. Adaptive intelligence is the best kind. And just as Dragon learns you, we’ve made it easy for you to learn Dragon: an intuitive design and step-by-step tutorial make Dragon easy to learn and easy to master.

The experience of using Dragon 13 is just as liberating as all other versions of the program, but new improvements make this version the best yet. Dragon is the fastest and most accurate way to interact with your computer, and it dramatically boosts your personal productivity. Running on a boundless expanse of programs and applications, Dragon 13 also gives you more freedom than ever: with Dragon, you can dictate text anywhere you would normally type. And for the first time, built-in mic support makes this dictation possible without the constraint of a headset.

More than just capable of performing these tasks, Dragon is able to perform them exceptionally well. Dragon delivers up to 99% speech recognition accuracy right out of the box, so you can start dictating with near-perfect accuracy the day you purchase it. Our most innovate and exciting Dragon yet, Dragon 13 will revolutionize the way you work and empower you to be your most productive self.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 has the right balance of continuity, innovation, brand affinity, and reliability to inspire a renewed sense of delight in both new users and veteran Dragon users alike, while it also maintain its relevance and value to the user. After reaching the highest peak of voice recognition technology, we are eager to keep building up.
