Hi,

I have Dragon preferred version 10.

at the present time, I do not think I need all the features of Knowbrainer, but I do think that I might have a use for univoice.

I sometimes record conferences or speakers and is my understanding that I potentially could transcribe multiple speakers by using univoice.

 It is not 100% clear if I need to purchase knowbrainer to use univoice.

thank you

You need to purchase everything on our website. Previous advertising struck out by forum moderator.

UniVoice Ver. 9 (for DNS 9) required the purchase of KnowBrainer but UniVoice 10 and KnowBrainer 2008 are now sold separately. However, we don't believe that UniVoice will work well for your purposes. One of the original intentions of UniVoice was to be able to record more than one voice in an interview situation. Unfortunately UniVoice never worked well for that purpose. Transcribing recordings of multiple users will also not work well in UniVoice. We only recommend UniVoice for nonprofessional use (non-specialty vocabulary usage) for multiple users who need to use the same user profile, such as a classroom situation and for end-users with verbal disabilities.

thanks.

 

When you say it does not work well, what level of accuracy are you talking about? even if it were, say, 70% accuracy for various speakers, it is possible it still could be helpful since it would eliminate the need to transcribe all the notes. Do you think it might be worth a try?

You would probably see at least 70% accuracy but note that UniVoice is guaranteed so if you are not happy; you can return it for a full refund and it’s downloadableso there is no ri$k.

i use dss sftware and olympus 5000 recorder with my dragon 10 pref on xp proL8 cache with 6ram

 this software cannot record more than one voice file at once.  I want to be able to record my classes at university and be able to transcribe them. should i be using univoice instead. if it has at least 70% accuracy this is better than what i have today andwould save me alot of time dictating into my recorder after my prof. speaks.

Toshiba 3.0ghz intel pent 4 with HT and 2 gb ddr sdram running xp pro media center sp3 and dragon preferred 10.1   Also.....
Macbook Pro osx10.5.8 with Parallels 4.0 xp pro sp3 and dragon Pro 10.1 Intel core 2 duo 9200 i think...both have built in sound cards, toshiba is realtek and not sure about mac....using a vxi talkpro 100 headset

I use dns 10 pro on macbook and dns 10 pref on toshiba

Thank you for all of your time and effort on my and others behalf

For beginners, you're probably going to have to record your lecturers in conference mode which means that you will not be able to directly transcribe the dictation into NaturallySpeaking. UniVoice is more ideally suited to multiple users but nothing can even begin to transcribe a lecture that is recorded in conference mode.

Your only option would be to resort to Echo Dictating (repeating everything you hear from the recording) unless you want to try live Echo Dictating with a court reporter type of microphone (surrounds the nose and mouth) which is rather difficult to get used to. For correction purposes, there would be some advantage to using KnowBrainer 2008 but as far as the raw transcription is concerned, there is no advantage in using KnowBrainer or UniVoice.
