Dragon NaturallySpeaking Preferred 10 is the exact same software as the above Dragon NaturallySpeaking Preferred Wireless 10 but the package includes a wired headset instead of the superior wireless headset that comes with the wireless edition. With the price difference so small we ranked the wireless edition which includes the wireless headset first as it allows you to move around a lot more when dictating. This wired edition still has a decent headset albeit not wireless so you will have to sit by your computer to use it.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking Standard 10 is the cheaper version of the preferred version with a few less functions but still delivers the core speech recognition functions. It is perfect for people that want speech recognition for a small price. It is ideal for casual users while frequent users might want to purchase the advanced preferred edition.
