Improved Accuracy: Dragon Home is the most intelligent speech recognition solution available.

This optimal accuracy is achieved even for speakers with accents and in slightly noisy environments. This means that Dragon understands you, and you get things done faster than ever. And when you do need to make a correction, Dragon learns, making it more accurate the more you use it.
