Hi all,

Dragon Preferred (or Premium – may have changed the name of the middle of the three versions available: Student/Preferred or Premium/Professional) will work fine for the grad student. No need to spend $4-500 on the professional version.

Best way to customize the vocabulary is for the student to scan in or import vocabulary lists and have Dragon mine the student’s hard drive for new vocabulary. Student can then train pronunciation on the new vocabulary. Also, student can visit various websites, or browse articles online, copy & paste to their hard drive and then import the vocabulary.

If you have any specific questions or need additional assistance, please feel free to contact me off list.

Subject: [Athen] Dragon Naturally Speaking - professional and medical versions - question for biology grad student

Hello All. I received this question from a student and have need for input. Can you help?

"I wanted to get the dragon software for my computer to help me with writing. Which version do you think would work the best for a biology grad student? There is a standard version and then there is a professional and a medical version. In your experience do the basic programs work for graduate students that use a lot of technical terms in their reports?"


Thanks, Aura
