Nuance have recently launched Dragon Dictate voice recognition software for Intel-based Macintosh's running Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. The Assistive Technology team can provide advice and support for users running Dragon Dictate. Please contact the Service Desk for assistance.
Alternatively, Dragon NaturallySpeaking can be successfully run on an Intel Mac with a minimum of 4Gb of memory. To achieve this you must use a virtualisation product, such as VM Ware or Parallels, which allows Microsoft Windows and Dragon NaturallySpeaking to be run, virtually, within the Macintosh environment.
