What's New in Dragon® Legal Individual?

New next-generation “Deep Learning” speech technology

With over 2,000 voice and language scientists dedicated to innovating and developing new features, Dragon introduces "Deep Learning" technology and adaptation techniques that continuously adjust to your voice even if you have an accent or if you're in an environment where there are slight background noises.

Advanced formatting and impressive recognition improvements

The latest release of Dragon delivers laser-sharp recognition results when dictating numbers, email addresses, and place names based on how we normally speak, resulting in effortless post-editing corrections. Examples include: “quarter of five” -> “4:45”.

Optimized for Windows 10 touchscreen PCs

Dragon is fully optimized for use with today's popular Windows 10 touchscreen laptops, tablets, and mobile devices with hybrid touch and keyboard interaction modes.

Advanced transcription capabilities

The transcription process features a fully streamlined setup for your own voice. Because acoustic and language model adaptation are automatically leveraged for the current user, no special training is required. You can also accurately transcribe another single speaker’s voice from pre-recorded audio files or from podcasts. No additional training is also needed to transcribe third-party speakers*, so you can complete transcription quickly and accurately.

*Transcription of third-party speakers may require an additional license for each unique speaker.
