SmartNav Voice Clicking versus Dragon NaturallySpeaking

Post by Franck Dernoncourt » Sat Jun 30, 2012 11:14 am

Is the SmartNav Voice Clicking add-on entirely useless if I have Dragon NaturallySpeaking?

(Don't get me wrong, I love SmartNAV and just want to make sure I haven't overlooked a feature of the SmartNAV voice clicking add-on)

The SmartNav voice clicking software can not run at the same time as Dragon, no. If you have dragon premium (not dragon home) you can set macros for voice clicking in dragon.

Is there any feature of the SmartNAV voice clicking software that is not present in Dragon NaturallySpeaking premium?

You have to create the macros, but otherwise it should be there.

thanks for the information Mike!

(Actually the mouse macros are provided by default with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 premium:

The IBM Viavoice software doesn't work well with other applications requiring the mic. It's a bit of a holdover from older sound processing technologies.

Out of curiosity, why can't the SmartNav voice clicking software run at the same time as Dragon NaturallySpeaking?

If you are interested, here is the "official" Dragon speech recognition feature matrix: http://www.nuance.com/ucmprod/groups/dr ... 004125.pdf (mirror: http://www.scribd.com/doc/100504717/Dra ... ure-Matrix ; btw it would be great if we could add attachments to posts in this forum). Here is an unofficial comparison matrix (which does not include the home edition): http://www.knowbrainer.com/newstore/pdf ... _Guide.pdf (mirror: http://www.scribd.com/doc/100504892/KB- ... ison-Guide).
