A major complaint of mine is that DNS STILL doesn't support 64bit Vista. If ever there was a program which should benefit from a 64bit instruction set & memory addressing, surely DNS is it? BTW, according to the Nuance website, the best wireless headset for DNS at the moment is the Sennheiser BW900 system, although it's expensive at about 𧵬.

I have been using this software for a long time. I use the Plantronics CS60 microphone which I find excellent.

On a number of locations I have tried to use the data collector to get a personalised vocabulary but the system never worked when it was supposed to transfer back the vocabulary for analysis. Having said that the dictation works very well. It has no difficulty with the words that your reviewer had.

I do not see any reason to up grade to NaturallySpeaking ten.

Dragon 10 is a very good product. The problem is the included normal microphone or the optional Bluetooth microphone do NOT work well and have poor accuracy.

The microphone I finally got is the Andrea NC181USB which is approved by nuance with a maximum accuracy rating of 6/6.

I got mine overnight from http://www.voicerecognition... and now dragon is super accurate and fast.

So forget the BT microphone get this NC181USB.
