[SOLVED] Which version of microsoft office to buy?


I plan to run Voicecomputer 14 with Dragon Professional Individual 14 under Windows 7.

I plan to buy Microsoft Office, in order to use Word and Outlook.

Does anyone have any advice on what version of Office to buy, to get the best voice control integration in Word and Outlook?

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely, Adam

Although Dragon Professional Individual 14 supports Microsoft Office up to 2016, I personally see no value in getting Microsoft Office 2016. Office 2016 is simply an attempt by Microsoft to incorporate the ability to use Microsoft Office in the cloud and is essentially equivalent to the current version of Office 365, which would be better anyway.

Regardless, my recommendation would be to go with Microsoft Office 2013. That version is stable and better suited for individual use vs. Microsoft Office 2016, particularly for use with Dragon Professional Individual 14 and VoiceComputer 14.

Chuck, thank you so much, that’s exactly what I needed to know.
