For legal professionals, nothing beats Dragon Naturally Speaking Professional and Dragon Naturally Speaking Legal.
For the majority of legal uses, Dragon Professional is $200 less and performs just as well, unless you need the additional features offered by the Legal version ( which has the addition of Latin vocabulary and case citation formatting - typically used in litigation work).
Both editions are totally integrated with the top of the line Olympus and Philips digital recorders, as well as with the Olympus, and Philips professional transcription systems.
Using these recorders couldn't be easier: just dictate, place the recorder in its cradle, and the dictation will be automatically typed into a Microsoft Word compatible document with no human intervention.
The attorney can be in the office, at home, or sitting in Starbucks with a laptop, and the voice dictations will be transferred to the secretary's computer equipped with Dragon in a few minutes over the Internet. This legal transcription software can also be loaded directly on the attorney's PC or laptop so that when the recorder is connected, a Microsoft Word-compatible document pops out in a couple of minutes.
An assistant or secretary can perform a quality check and proofread the document. When looking at the document, you can focus the cursor on any sentence or word, and each word will be highlighted "karaoke style", as the author's voice pronounces each word. All keyboard corrections go back into the author's user profile, and Dragon continues to learn and get even better.
