Considering the DRAGON and was looking for any feedback from any users.

Is it worth the price (currently on a TV special)

I have tried those Virus cleaners and have no luck with them. Price is not that critical but just would like something to work....hate throwing money on worthless junk and the Dragon might just be another throwaway item.

The idea of a voice activating the Laptop has me thinking as my old fingers are a wee bit stiff when typing.

Welcome any feedback as to the worthiness be it good or bad......anyone?

The DRAGON is excellent and an extremely secure web browser. It's based on Chromium, the same thing Google Chrome is based on. However, it adds a great deal of extra security features. When used with the Comodo Antivirus, it provides additional security features.

The voice-activating features are pretty good.

Don't buy it from TV. It's a free download.

The OP is talking about Dragon Naturally Speaking, not a web browser.

Yes its worth it. Keep in mind that you will have to train it for your the way you speak. It should only take a few days of actually doing so. So keep in mind that it will make errors for those few days, but they will dissipate within about two weeks. Also the headphones that come with it (may not as I'm still using v10) are cheap and you'll want to upgrade to a better quality set.

Well reading the OP again, I thought it was the way you thought. But reading it again, maybe not.

I went with the ods. Comodo Dragon has never been sold on television, and I take the comment about virus cleaners to mean they for some reason purchased some of that security/tuneup crap that's advertised on TV (speed up my PC and so on).

Thanx for the quick responses.....actually was considering BOTH to be honest. If they both work then it's GREAT.

I used it a while ago, like over 15 years ago. So of course, things have changed. It was a bit of a novelty to me - you have to be willing and patient to sit down and learn its nuances and train it to your voice like Pruzhany said. But, I am guessing the process isn't as tedious as it was when I tried it.

FWIW, now that they are running TV ads for it again, I am willing to give it another shot.

Perhaps; it's not clear. Usually "Dragon" refers to Dragon made by Comodo. I've never heard someone call Dragon Naturally Speaking by Nuance just "Dragon.

I'm not sure the OP has cleared it up yet either.
