Hello all,

I am working with a student who is considering a Bluetooth mic for using with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13. We have it installed and running on a MS Surface Pro 3. As there is only one USB port on the Surface Pro 3, the student is seriously considering a wireless headset. Also, it is REALLY easy to pull the tablet off a desk by catching the headset cord.

While I checked out the Nuance website for recommended wireless Dragon headsets, a majority of these appear to be for telephony products and/or come with a base station or USB dongle that is designed to connect to a computer.

Has anyone used a Bluetooth headset for Dragon that was found to have good sound quality and functionality for speech recognition?

By the way - Dragon 13 on an MS Surface Pro 3 (Core i7, 8GB of RAM) is fantastic. Great option for a student with repetitive stress injuries as the tablet is light, easily responds to touch, and is very responsive with Dragon.

Take care,
