Has anyone tested version 15?
Is it compatible with VC_14-82?
Are there any advantages to using version 15 over14?
Has anyone tested version 15?
DPI 15 works well but haven’t used it enough to say whether it’s worth the upgrade.
DPI 15 works just fine with VoiceComputer
I’ve done some pretty extensive accuracy measurements and for users with extensive and unusual custom vocabulary, DPI 15 “learns” more quickly than the previous versions of Dragon when using custom vocabularies and document analysis techniques.
if the user only dictates colloquial speech and is already getting 99% accuracy, that user will not see an improvement in accuracy. DPI 15 will also give better recognition rates with supercheap microphones.
What we don’t know yet is how well DPI 15 will “remember” corrections
At the same time the overall response DPI 15 is noticeably smoother than with DNS13 and I would say that the upgrade would be worth it even for users who only dictate continuous colloquial speech.
There are a number of minor issues that we are still working on, but VoiceComputer (i.e., your version) does work with DPI 15.
I’ve been working with DPI 15 now for about 2 1/2 weeks and I can say definitively that it both learns more quickly from corrections and learns the first time you correct something. In addition, it does seem to learn on the fly, which is what I would expect from the deep learning algorithm. That is, accuracy tends to improve over time, even if you don’t have to make any corrections, among a few other things that function better than DPI 14 did.
In short, it’s a keeper. The only thing that I’ve noticed with VoiceComputer is that if you have Dragon anywhere and you configure it via the Dragon Options dialog, subsequent to validation there are times when the user profile will not load automatically when launching VoiceComputer. This seems to be an issue with the way that Dragon anywhere and DPI 15 are configured to work together.
However, I’m still getting used to some of the new features and functions in DPI 15. We’ll all learn more as time goes on.
A new version of VoiceComputer is in the database, VoiceComputer 2017. We’re still testing but it seems to work just fine with Windows 10. We plan to announce the new version on Monday.
What dialogue are you referring to? I have dpi 15 installed on three different machines.
I don't see your problem because it doesn't happen for me. VoiceComputer shuts down just fine.Chucker2016-09-11 09:45:55
but Windows 10 IS very useful to Microsoft even though it is useless to the consumer. As of now, the consumer is not the customer of the big technology companies, the individual consumer has become the product for further monetization.
I’m sticking with Windows 7 for my high-power workstations
You are so right Phil.
Not much difference:
Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz Single Thread Rating: 2333
Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.40GHz Single Thread Rating: 2068
Intel Core i7-3960X @ overclocked 4.0GHz Single Thread Rating: 2250
This machine is subjectively "one blink of the eye slower"
Intel Core i7-4550U @ 1.50GHz Single Thread Rating: 1619
Thanks for the comparison numbers, indeed not a whole lot of difference.
A “blink of an eye” is nominally ~250 ms which is pretty much what you will casually detect.
Very fast dictation is a word uttered every ~300 ms
A-B comparisons and trained observers can detect visual differences of just under 100 ms differences.
The best is detecting A-B visual differences “was it different” in animation down to about ~20-30 ms.
Specialized tests, under optimal conditions have claimed 13ms as the lower limit but I am dubious.
Futzing DDR4 memory performance might get you ~10 ms per AnandTech
