Nuance gives Dragon more teeth

Nuance Communications has announced customisation and productivity enhancements for Dragon Professional Group and Dragon Legal Australian.

Dragon Professional Group and Dragon Legal Australian have been updated to include a next-generation speech engine leveraging Nuance’s Deep Learning technology to deliver high recognition accuracy with the ability to learn and adapt to a variety of accents and environments.

Mark Geremia, vice-president and general manager of Dragon, Nuance Communications, said, “Accurate and timely documentation is a critical component of many organisations across a wide range of industries – from financial institutions to social services and law firms. But if completed incorrectly and inefficiently, poor documentation can hamper report quality, employee productivity, and increase cost and compliance risks.”

“Dragon Professional Group and Dragon Legal Group Australian effectively address these pain points by enabling professionals to use advanced speech recognition and robust voice command capabilities to create outstanding documentation – all by voice. Dragon empowers professionals to work better, faster and smarter - whether they’re in the office or out in the field, saving individuals and organisations time and costs, and improving overall productivity,” he added.

Dragon Professional Group, version 15 and Dragon Legal Group Australian, version 15, as well as upgrades, are available through Nuance’s Dragon reseller partners.

Dragon Legal Group Australian, version 15 is designed specifically for the Australian legal industry with a specialised legal vocabulary developed using a corpus of Australian legal documents. 

According to the annual International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) technology survey, Dragon speech recognition technology was ranked number one in deployments among law firms and legal departments. Additionally, Dragon Legal Group led in the category of best voice-to-text technology with 46% of firms reporting their use of the solution.
