This is from my MacBook Air post at:


 Don’t know if  the information from the Nuance rep is actually the case in the real world, or not.  Anyone successfully running Dragon for the Mac and/or PC on a MacBook Air ~ especially the entry level version?  Or a MacBook Pro?  Or a Mac Mini?  Any details and/or advice would be more than appreciated!

    Since Dragon is available for both Windows and OS X, I'm not sure what you are actually asking. Will it work on a new Mac model? Yes, it will. It works quite well on my 2006 Mac Pro and my 2011 13" i5 MacBook Pro.

    I've used Dictate for the Mac on systems with 4 GBs of RAM. In fact I've used earlier products from MacSpeech (before they shifted to Dictate) all of which worked well on even earlier Mac models. I don't think you need worry about whether you have adequate hardware.


    I don't use Dictate for personal reasons - not really necessary for me - but I have installed and tested it and all of the MacSpeech speech recognition products from when they were first starting up. They are helpful and reliable people to work with.
