Dragon Professional v16

Please note Dragon Professional v16 is not compatible with Mac. If you require an alternative for Mac, please consider TalkType.



Nuance® Dragon® Professional expands the boundaries of speech recognition technology for documentation productivity on the PC. With dictation and transcription capabilities that are faster and more accurate than ever before, you’ll spend less time on paperwork and more time on activities that boost the bottom line. Dragon Professional should be a mandatory purchase for everyone that wants to increase their productivity and start speaking their thoughts, not typing them.

Dragon Professional 16 is highly accurate dictation software built for Windows and mobile devices. Dragon eliminates barriers to productivity and creativity by letting you interact with your computer by voice. It turns your spoken thoughts into text and your voice commands into action so you don’t have to worry about the mechanics of typing and spelling. Make edits and apply formatting using your voice to make easy work of document creation.


Included within purchase: 

  • Dragon Professional v16
  • Advanced custom commands for use with other pieces of Assistive Technology
  • Single or double ear headset (for headset versions)



Fluent in business of all sizes

Now serving the needs of both individual and group deployments, Dragon is the professional speech recognition solution of choice for sectors including financial services, law, law enforcement, health, education, and human services.


Ready for where you’re headed

Built on a quarter-century of expertise, Dragon Professional v16 is optimised for Windows 11 and backwards-compatible to Windows 10. It is the premier speech recognition software for both front-end (live speech-to-text) and back-end (transcribed from pre-existing audio files) applications.


Superior speed and accuracy

Empower employees to dictate documents 3 times faster than typing with up to 99% recognition accuracy, right from first use. Capturing information at the speed of thought allows busy professionals to reproduce details with specificity and immediacy while saving time they can spend on clients.


Nuance Deep Learning technology

With a next‑generation speech engine powered by Nuance Deep Learning technology, Dragon achieves high recognition accuracy while dictating—even for users with accents or those working in open office or mobile environments, making it ideal for diverse workgroups and settings.


Streamline repetitive or manual processes

Dragon makes it easy to automate tasks or shortcut repetitive steps. Use custom voice commands to insert standard boilerplate text or signatures into documents or create time‑saving macros to automate multi‑step workflows by voice. Share these customisations across the Dragon user community for efficiency gains.


Less or no transcription time and costs

Reduce dependencies on outsourced transcription services or eliminate business transcription bottlenecks. With Dragon, transcribe audio files or voice files of another single speaker into text quickly and easily or use the Auto Transcribe Folder Agent (ATFA) to transcribe batch files of audio recordings.
