Nuance Announces Enhancements to Dragon Professional Group to Help Enterprises Improve Document Efficiencies
Offers Simplified Distribution and Management of Speech Recognition across enterprises to boost documentation accuracy, productivity, improve workflows and costs

LONDON, UK. – May 3, 2017 – Nuance Communications, Inc. today announced the UK English language availability of the latest version of Dragon Professional Group, its enterprise-ready speech recognition solution for professionals across multiple industries. Empowering high-quality documentation faster and more efficiently by voice, while also saving businesses time and money, Dragon Professional Group enables fast, efficient and accurate dictation of documentation, as well as robust transcription and powerful customisation features. It helps organisations gain competitive advantage by unlocking the productivity and efficiency benefits that are inherent in Nuance document productivity solutions powered by speech recognition technology.

Dragon Professional Group can be deployed quickly and effectively to drive professional productivity across an organisation of any size, helping busy professionals reduce the time spent on administrative tasks and documentation, minimise or eliminate reliance on outsourced transcription services, while improving employee productivity to achieve significant time and cost savings across the business. By deploying Dragon Professional Group, enterprises can benefit from:


  • Fast and accurate dictation, which boosts employee productivity by being faster than manually typing
  • High recognition accuracy for more users with the ability to learn and adapt to a variety of accents and environments, as a result of next-generation speech engine powered by Nuance Deep Learning technology
  • Powerful transcription tools to eliminate transcription bottlenecks, cut reliance on outsourced services and reallocate support staff to more high-value, billable tasks
  • Custom voice commands to automate repetitive tasks and increase efficiencies across a workgroup or department
  • Ability to work quickly and accurately by voice within the latest business applications
  • Minimising post-editing with formatting and other recognition improvements to speed document turnaround

“Although accurate and timely documentation is a critical task for a number of organisations across a wide range of industries – from financial institutions to social services organisations, and more – it can be a major pain point, as it more than often decreases the amount of time that professionals have to focus on their main job responsibilities, and can have a ripple effect across workgroups and teams,” said Mark Geremia, Vice President, General Manager of Dragon, Nuance.  “Dragon Professional Group effectively addresses this pain point by allowing professionals to utilise advanced speech recognition and robust voice command capabilities to create detailed and accurate documentation – whether in or out of the office.”

Centralised administration is provided through the Nuance Management Center (NMC) for significant cost savings. NMC also enables enterprises to track employee usage of Dragon Professional Group, reassign licenses based on employee use, and manage or share customisations, including custom words, commands and auto-texts, across multiple Dragon users. Combined, Dragon Professional Group and Nuance Management Center provide a powerful productivity solution, enabling corporations to work smarter and more efficiently for bottom-line impact.

The introduction of Dragon Professional Group comes 20 years after the Dragon family was announced. Through a program of continuous investment and research, Dragon has consistently set the standard for excellence in desktop speech recognition solutions, bringing productivity and accessibility benefits to legions of users globally.
