Version: MacSpeech Dictate Medical 1.5
By Mac Canuck
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Nowhere near as good as Dragon Dication Medical for Windows. It utilizes only a fraction of the features that DDM has, and I find it clumsy at times. The recognition window is hard to navigate, and you must click on the selection you want to use instead of saying "choose 2", meaning you have to move between voice and mouse constantly.
It also freezes, with the rotating beach ball, at least once a day (and I have been using it every day!). I have a brand new iMac, so it is not my computer. I will be going back to using DDM on BootCamp, until this gets better.
It has a long way to go, and I was glad to hear Nuance had acquired it. Hopefully development will eventually make it worthy of using for professional purposes.
