Dragon NaturallySpeaking is a product of Nuance Communications, a multinational computer software technology company headquartered in Burlington, MA.  Nuance Communications is the world’s leading provider of speech and optical character recognition technologies.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking is their top performing product, the world’s first continuous voice recognition application based on speaker dependent speech and algorithm technology.  Dr. James Baker was the first to design this technology in 1975, then simply referred to as Dragon.  In 1982 he and his wife Dr. Janet Baker founded Dragon Systems, named after her love for Dragons.  Dragon, still in its infancy wasn’t considered continuous speech recognition until 1997 with the release of Dragon NaturallySpeaking v1.  Back then, Dragon NaturallySpeaking was for personal use and required a high powered PC to operate.  As we know, times have changed, thanks to the advancements in hardware and software technology, today; Dragon NaturallySpeaking is the most widely used speech recognition application in the world.
