Dragon Professional Individual 15 is Nuance's latest addition to the Dragon family of speech recognition products. Dragon Professional Individual 15 is now available via download.

Upgrades to Dragon Legal Individual 15 are also available.

For larger enterprises, Dragon Professional Group 15 is available as of May 2017, along with Dragon Legal Group 15 and Dragon Law Enforcement 15. The information on this site pertaining to the Dragon Pro/Legal Individual products applies to the Group products as well. Group products have management capabilities and support for running on an RDP Server which a small number of individuals find useful.

The Medical products are from a separate division. Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 will likely be the primary Windows desktop product for practices of under 25 physicians for many months.
