I purchased the Dragon Naturally Speaking v 10.0 and am using it with the corded headset that comes with the software. It's been working pretty well.
However, I would prefer a wireless headset. I noticed that Dragon has a version that comes with the Plantronics Calisto. I went to Staples. They didn't have the Calisto in stock but they have the Calisto PRO which includes a cordless phone (which I really don't need).
Will the Calisto PRO wireless headset that comes with this package work with Dragon? On the Nuance (Dragon) website, the Plantronics Calisto shows to be certified. However, there's nothing about the Calisto PRO?
The datasheet for that product shown here. Says on pg2:
"The included Plantronics® Calisto™ Headset with Bluetooth® USB adapter delivers a totally wireless solution."
See that this mentions a headset and a USB dongle, I have not tried it, but either a Voyager PRO UC or Savi Go headset (both of which also come with the USB dongle) should work with Dragon Naturally Speaking.
The Calisto Pro series comes with a dock for the handset and the head piece. This dock connects to the phone line through the telephone jack at the back as well as to the PC through a USB port also at the back. So you will not need a USB dongle. Once connected to the PC through a USB cable, I presume the Calisto Pro headset will work with the computer the same way as the Calisto Bluetooth mentioned by Nuance.
My question is this.. Out of SaviGo and Voyager Pro UC, which one is better for Dragon Naturally Speaking dictation? I am asking this in terms of voice quality and the accuracy of dictation that can be achieved.
Kindly assist me in making the decision between the two.
I have a brand new Voyager Pro UC WG 201/B with the dongle that came with the headset. Although the USB device registered to the PC, and headset appears to have paired with the dongle, there is no sound to the PC. Tested by opening MS Recorder - no sound on the file. Opened Control Panel->Sounds->Record, configure mic and the system reports that the PC could not hear a sound.
Windows 7 64bit, CD that came with headset has been run, and Plantronics software installed.
Thanks in advance for any information.
Not happy with the Calisto Pro headset. Very flimsy in construction. The plastic earpiece at its point to attachment to the headset breaks very easily at the hinge point. It broke several days after first using it. Received a replacement. That also broke within two days of use. They should have adopted a design similar to the CS-50 headset. I never had a problem that model's earpiece. For the record, I am a physician that has used headsets for voice dictation since the 1990's
Hi, and thanks to everyone for your contributions.
I'd like to know if ALL bluetooth headsets should work with Dragon?
Is there any importance either it comes with an USB dongle or if it is directly linked to my PC's integrated bluetooth?
About quality, I see 20 bluetooth headsets since USD20 to USD100$, do you have any advice on models?
Maybe other brands?
Subsidiary question, if I buy such device, can I link it OR to my PC or to my Phone, alternatively, without the need of relinking it each time readd the device?
Thanks again for all, waiting for your advice for buying!!
