14:10 : announcing Dragon Professional Individual & Dragon Professional Group.

Pro features updated transcription tools. Both dragon products will connect to the cloud, allowing all custom shortcuts to synch across things.

HURRAH, Transcription has been massively improved. Will show you whats been transcribed at the same time as playing the audio. A feature that's been missing form DD4.

Demo going on of tabbing through form fields by speaking “next field” Made a mistake, will now support phonetic hints when you add a custom entry.

16:17 Dragon Professional Group. Connects to a Nuance user management center. This one’s for enterprise people. Corporate customers wanted a way to track to see how often people are using Dragon Dictate, Manage Licenses and Change things to adapt to enterprise.
