We are planning on using the built-in dictation feature in the Mac OS.
The latest OS, Mojave, has the dictation settings under Keyboard – Input, and in the Accessibility settings.
The student would not have to setup a profile which will save time.
We have not had a lot of time to play around with the features and functionality but are hoping that it will be a suitable replacement for Dragon Dictate. Our fingers are crossed!

Subject: [Athen] Dragon for Mac

I just saw in another thread on here that Nuance is no longer supporting Dragon for Mac and that it does not work well with the newest MacOS version. We have many students who are eligible to use Dragon and who also use Macs, so this will create an issue for us eventually. What are folks planning on using in place of Dragon Dictate?
