Here's a productivity boost for Mac peeps: Dragon Dictate for Mac's latest version, v4, is out.
Dragon Dictate is the software that goes against everything you've been told about letting your fingers do the walking, instead sit back and use your voice to dictate text and control Mac apps like Gmail in Safari and Firefox.
This version also lets any one speaker transcribe from a pre-recorded audio file. That means you, writers, students, teachers, field workers, business execs and anyone who needs to access content from audio files like podcasts and single speaker formats.
If you're still not convinced, how about faster editing and better memory management capability than earlier versions?
Dragon Dictate for Mac v4, retails for $269 and is available at newzealand.nuance.com, Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi and Noel Leeming Group.
We have two copies of Dragon Dictate for Mac, v4, to give away. To be in to win, leave a comment and tell us about a time you publicly voiced your opinion (like responding to a petition, writing a letter to a publication, an organisation or an MP, participating in a protest or telling a company what you really think), and the important difference it made. Open to NZ residents only. Closes May 31.
