I dictate a few lines and the product works reasonably well.
I then decide to run a 'check microphone'. You can't find the microphone.
So I go back and dictate a few swear words. It works. Your 'check microphone' still cant find the microphone.
Some research on your own database indicates that the problem has been around since at least version 11
Instead of bringing out new versions, how about YOU FIX THE DAMN KNOWN BUGS FIRST.
I hate insane software like this. I don't care for IT tech explanations or excuses.
If your software developers cannot see how utterly STUPID this makes them look then they should be looking for a new job.
Your company execs should be ashamed of themselves.

Hey OP, just leaving you a sympathy post my man. I too have felt the wrath of Nuance software, and honestly I nearly gagged just by looking at your topic title. I've used their software once every 3-4 years since they came out with Naturally Speaking in the 90's, and honestly I haven't seen one version that worked very well. Also, whoever above me posted about it either picking up a few words for everyone, or a lot of words for one person were pretty much spot on. The only marginal (read: unacceptable level) success I've seen was when using the advanced trainer on ONE user (Dr. who used it for dictation), and even at that point it was more frustration than it was worth.
