Dragon Professional 11…yes, it’s been announced and we’ve been promised that it will begin shipping at the end of August. Over the next few weeks, the CHESS Team will keep posting updates on how it’s performing on our systems…and especially, how it’s performing compared to Dragon 10.
As a “heads up” for our serious Dragon users–if you want to make use of the Dragon SideBar, realistically, start watching prices on the wide screen monitors (21-22″ wide minimum) and prepare to purchase. If you know your commands really well, don’t have very many of your own custom commands and don’t plan to add any, then you may not need a larger/wider screen.
Take note Tablet PC, notebook and laptop users–Dragon 11 may inspire you to consider a dual screen monitor setup for longer dictation activities. Speaking practically–I find myself moving to the “big screen” more and more and now that I have the Dragon SideBar available, I’m finding that I use my custom commands more as well.
We’ll keep you posted and look forward to your comments too!
