(It would be nice if they had a complete feature set table... I suppose that's too much to ask what the product does... sigh...)

This shows the feature differences between the versions, but it certainly isn't a complete feature set table - but does any software ever really have that?

Have to go along with everyone else that DNS is the only serious game in town for this sort of software. Not that surprising since they bought their main competitors, I suppose, though they were always the best.

I'm getting a 404 from that link...

Is the Universe trying to tell me something? Is there a Law of Repulsion? tongue

Found this:

Includes option to save synchronized audio from
dictation done in DragonPad, Word, WordPerfect and
OpenOffice Writer (Dragon saves a .dra file along
with the transcribed text file); includes Auto-Transcribe
Folder Agent (monitors a specific directory to automatically
launch transcription; can provide a synchronized
audio file along with the transcript for deferred correction)
and Correction Only mode (correctionist can
turn on the Correction Only setting within the original
dictator’s profile)

Which is clear as mud...

Sigh... I suppose I'll just email support and ask...

Same here; now replaced it with a better working link to a different site.
I tried looking at original again and got these:-

I'm still not clear...

* Multiple dictation sources
* Mobile dictation
* Transcription tools

Does one of those cover it? I would *think* that the "mobile dictation" would cover it...

(I bailed on their contact form when I filled it in and there was no way to submit it... I'll check again later... Probably HTML funkiness...)

Hi

Sorry for the late reply, but yes, Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium will do what you need.
You can transcribe .WAV, .WMA, .MP3, .DSS or .DS2. files (copied from the help file).

The quality of the transription will depend on the device used to record the sound and ambient noise. A 50$ digital voice recorder will be a lot less accurate than an entry-level Olympus, say the DS-2400. a smarthphone should work fine, though.   

And I can only repeat that I suggest the KnowBrainer Forum as the best forum for speech recognition users, old and new.
