Does anyone have experience with Nuance's OmniPage Professional 17, Stuffit and/or PaperPort 11? I've got an offer, as a "current customer" of their Dragon Dictate to get them as a bundle for $99.99. Price seems like a good deal, but don't know anybody who has used them.

I had dragon dictate ver. 1,
It worked great, after you too the time to read the sample books so it would learn your voice.

Tip: Make sure the environment you are in is the same all the time.
EX: If you have a fan running you must have a fan running for the program to recognize you voice when dictating later on.

Great program once you get the hang of it.

Thanks Rick. I'm really liking Dragon Dictate. The OmniPage issue turned into a real cluster ----. Turns out my printer and computer didn't have the right type of driver for OmniPage. I spent about three days figuring this out and what to do about it. Fortunately I hadn't bought the OmniPage. Then after Geek Squad techs tried to help (but didn't), a clerk at the same Best Buy store gave me the "crucial clue" by telling to use the scanner commands on the computer instead of the printer's scanner menu commands. When I did that, I found out that the printer had never been installed on the computer. Once I found the printer install disk, I found that the computer has it's own version similar to OmniPage and works like a charm.:D

Then on July 3rd, we had lightning fry the computer. Another BIG, BIG hassle. Wound up using our ISP and HP online help which involved $49.99 and four hours on the telephone talking to people all over the US and finally India. Then after seven days and a new DSL box, we were told we'd have to have it repaired which would be about $500. HP offered to sell me a SlimLine for $270. Sounded good vs $500 for a repair so I've got one on the way. Ten minutes after I ordered that, I learned our son has the part to fix this one (took him about 15 minutes to install an Internet Install card he had laying around).

Oh, well, I'd been wanting a better computer for my office anyway.
