Do not ever give voice recognition software to a writer who's a keyboard junkie. Do not ever give Dragon Dictate to any one who saw how rubbish dictation software was in the 1980s, 1990s and probably 2000s but they didn't check. For a few minutes sitting in front of Dragon Dictate will destroy their worldview like a politician discovering that encryption makes monitoring computers hard. Dragon Dictate works and it works extremely, just extremely well. It also does more than dictation: this is powerful software for word processing by voice command.
This is about getting more from dictation in OS X, but really it's about getting anything from it at all: we're prepared to bet that you've never even switched the feature on. That might be because you're already addicted to Dragon Dictate, and if that is the case, you carry on. If it's that you just haven't looked, or if you don't believe you need it though, OS X Yosemite's dictation is far better and more genuinely useful than you mght expect.
RED's teased 6K resolution Dragon sensor is exceeding the company's expectations after internal testing, CEO Jim Jannard revealed on the official forums. He promises the sensor will be "the cleanest" ever seen and will be the resolution and dynamic range king. At ISO 2000, Jannard said, the images produced look better than the company's current MX sensor at ISO 800.
A new girl is aiming to steal some of Apple's Siri voice assistant fame and her name is Nina. Nuance, the company behind other speech recognition technologies such as Dragon TV and Dragon Drive, brought out Nina, though she will cater to a different user base than Siri and Samsung's S Voice or Google Now in Jelly Bean. It will be offered to companies who wish to automate mobile product support rather than allow setting appointments in their calendars or composing e-mails or text messages.
Nine days after its launch, SpaceX' Dragon capsule detached from the International Space Station and began its trip back to Earth. The capsule was docked with the ISS for five days, after delivering supplies to the ISS. It was loaded with about 1,400lbs of old space station equipment and science samples.
RED's Jim Jannard and Jarred Land gave two previews of two high-end technology upgrades. The Dragon will upgrade both the EPIC and Scarlet lines to a maximum 6K resolution. In the process, they also get 120FPS shooting even at 5K, and over 15 stops of dynamic range for better handling of highlights and shadows.
After unveiling the One smartphone lineup yesterday at Mobile World Congress, HTC has introduced another trio, the Dragon series, that will be headed to China. The brand includes three different models that are similar to the One V, each featuring entry-level hardware paired with Android 4.0.
Nuance Communications has unveiled Dragon TV, a voice and natural language understanding platform for TV, device and set-top box OEMs and digital service operators. Similar to Nuance's plain-language speech recognition encoded in Siri's Assistant feature, Dragon TV responds to voice commands in plain English. Viewers can find content by speaking channel numbers, station names, show and movie names. Searches by actor's name and genre are also possible.
A new Swype beta this week has given the Android keyboard add-on its first voice recognition. Nuance's Dragon Dictation now lets users speak what they want to say without having to either switch to Google's on-screen keyboard or live with its limitations. The interface comes through a simple keyboard shortcut and doesn't replace the signature Swype interface.
Nuance shook up the smartphone field Tuesday by acquiring Vlingo. The deal gives it a natural language voice command system available both after the fact and preloaded on phones like the
