Hi Lydia,

It isn't supported anymore. Nuance stopped support a couple of years ago.
Also, Nuance
was recently purchased by Microsoft
hopefully, some of their technology will become integrated into Windows in
the future.

Mac has built-in dictation and voice control features, which offer a lot of
the same functionality as Dragon. Also, Dragon Anywhere
<https://www.nuance.com/dragon/dragon-anywhere.html> can be used on
mobile devices.
