As shown by Chatbots Magazine’s research, the vast majority of voice recognition improvements have been made since 2010. Nuance’s artificial intelligence-driven voice recognition achieved a 93% accuracy rate for the English language in version 12, increasing to 99% in the latest version 15 released in 2018. Further improvements and usability improvements are inevitable over the coming months and years, with Dragon voice recognition accuracy edging closer and closer to parity with humans.
