I use Dragon professional 15 on my home computer. I'm about to start an office job and would like to use my same Dragon profile on my office computer.

1. Can I install Dragon on my office computer without purchasing a new license? If so, how?

2. Can I use the same profile on my home and office computers?

a) Ideally, can I sync the two profiles so any training I do on one computer automatically trains my profile on the other computer? If so, how?

b) If not, can I at least make a copy of the profile I trained on my home computer so that my office profile will start from that baseline of training? How?

Thanks!

1. Dragon 15 includes 5 activations but Nuance only guarantees 2 of those activations so yes, you can install and activate Dragon on as many as 5 computers.

2.  Yes

     A. DPG 15.3 includes this feature which is referred to as a Roaming user profile but DPI 15.3 (which you are most likely using), does not include this feature. Fortunately you can use the poor man's Roaming user profile method which consists of moving your user profile to a flash drive and rather than copying your user profile from one computer to another, directly access your user profile, on both computers, from the same flash drive. You might even consider putting your flash drive on your key bring so that you don't accidentally leave it at the wrong address. We are speaking from personal experience.

     B. This is also possible but not as good.

Note that you will find these details/recommended outlined in our KnowBrainer Dragon Installation/Training Guide which is complementary to our customers. The previous training guide includes installation instructions, beginners, intermediate, & advanced training plus pictorial details avoiding 36 sand traps.

Thank you. How do I access the complementary version of the guide? When I followed the link you included and go to checkout, I can't find anywhere to put in my Knowbrainer serial number.

The KnowBrainer Dragon Installation/Training Guide is only complementary to our Dragon customers so if you're 1 of our Dragon customers, you already have a PDF copy which automatically updates itself. You might think of our complementary Virtual On-Site Support tech support and training guides as customer perks. We charge non-Dragon customers $20 to give potential customers a reason to come to us rather than Nuance or on Amazon box pushers who don't offer any real assistance.

Note that we could not find your name or email address, that you used to join this forum, in our records so we have no record of you obtaining KnowBrainer 2017 which includes its own KnowBrainer Manual which is free to everyone.

I know this is an old posting, but I'm wondering if anyone has come up with any new solutions.

My main computer is a Dell Inspiron 580 and my laptop is a Lenovo X1 carbon. I prefer to use the Dell because I have two monitors hooked up and that way I can dictate into a document on one monitor and research on the other.

I don't think either of these devices have USB 3; they might both have USB 2 (I bought the Dell in 2010, the laptop in 2013).

err... what exactly is your question? We are still on Dragon 15; nothing has changed since the original posts.

Hope that helps, Stephan
