I've just stumbled on this incredible resource! Apologies if I'm asking too many questions straight off the bat... I operated a wholly Microsoft environment many years ago. I switched to Mac for video editing and design et cetera. I discovered Dragon 6 for Mac, and it literally changed my life - I'm peek and poke typist - so I used to avoid any long typing sessions... Much to the detriment of the material I was outputting, emails and responses to clients et cetera. Because Dragon has discontinued its support for Mac 6, it's getting harder to get workarounds for relatively seamless dictation. These are my next steps. I would really appreciate it if anyone could confirm they are correct?

Install Parallels Desktop 17 for Mac on a Intel Mac Book Pro 2019 running the latest version of Big Sur 11.5.2.

Install Windows 10.

Install Dragon Home v15.

I assume I can use the Mac Pro microphone for dictation?

Use a notepad or Word to dictate into.

Copy and paste into Mac Mail, Mac Pages et cetera?

If this works... I'm going to try Windows 10 on ARM with a Mac mini M1 chip, running OS Monterey beta 12, at a later date...?

Thanking you in advance for any advice or help you can offer.

                    Welcome (See Mission Statement)

 

• The last time we checked, Parallels with Windows 10, utilizing the M1 chip, does not support DPI 15.61. You may have to consider a dedicated Windows PC or Mac without the M1 chip.

• The Dragon Home Edition is absolute trash that can only be purchased from Nuance and additionally means almost no support. We strongly recommend DPI 15.61 (includes complimentary installation/training manual) which we 30 day money back guarantee you will fall in love with. The Home Edition simply doesn't include enough features even for “just” dictation. When you think you are only going to dictate, you will be doing more than you think. Part of dictation includes the ability to add words/phrases to your vocabulary and using Select-&-Say commands for correcting/editing and much more. The Home Edition lacks many of these features.

• Notepad and Microsoft Word are both Dragon friendly environments but you should use Word for any real work. 

• You can copy text from Notepad to Mac Mail but there are also utilities like DragonCapture which will enable Direct Dictation into Mac Mail without having to copy and paste from another app. However, if you prefer this approach, you can uuse Dragon's built-in Dictation Box or SP Pro.

• Your Mac Pro microphone may work but is not ideally suited to speech recognition use. We recommend a proper USB Microphone

I can attest to the fact that 15.61 runs quite well under Windows 10 ARM and Parallels 17. There are a few issues in twaeking usb microphone settings, but I'd say perfrormance is very close to what I'd experienced in a "pure" Windows 10 environment.

My computer is an M1 Macbook Air with 16gb RAM and a 512gb internal SSD. Best machine I've ever owned.
