So, on the verge of MacOS 10.11, Nuance finally offers an update to run on MacOS 10.9 and 10.10. For $500?!!! Really? We Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac users are really bent over on this. And I’ll bet, it’s still totally incompatible with Microsoft Word 2011. I should just retire early from Medicine. Between this and Obamacare mandates, early retirement sure looks better and better. Thanks Nuance for shuttering another doctor’s office.
Every single day at work, I have to put up with Dragon Dictate Medical, currently at v3.0.5, on MacOS 10.9.4.
Every day, I have to deal with crashing if I ever make the mistake of moving from their notepad ap to a Microsoft Word document to copy and paste without turning off recognition and then clicking on the desktop to go to Finder before then going to Word.
Every day, I have to put up with it’s refusal to recognize corrections of the exact terms and phrases that it gets wrong 100% of the time, despite multiple attempts to train those specific phrases.
Every day, I look for an update with bug fixes. Sadly, it never happens. It took nearly 3 years to get a version of Dragon Dictate that would run on MacOS 10.6, when Apple was shipping MacOS 10.9.
Does anyone at Nuance have any pride in their work? I would be ashamed to have my name associated with such shoddy work.
