Dragon Gets NDIS Approval

Nuance Communications has announced that its voice recognition software Dragon has been officially approved by the Federal Government's National Disability Insurance Scheme.

"Nuance has long been committed to helping those with disability improve their quality of life through the use of assistive technology," said Derek Austin, Dragon Business Manager, Asia Pacific, Nuance.

"‘The NDIS approval of Dragon reaffirms our continued commitment to providing assistive technology and allows us to leverage our existing work in this field to increase awareness of the benefits of the solution among people with disability."

Nuance say their registration as an approved NDIS supplier will provides Dragon with greater and direct visibility among people with disabilities.

"Ideally, the NDIS will bring greater diversity and competition to the sector, but most importantly, it will let people with disability exercise choice and control over the tools they wish to use to support their needs and hopefully, improve their lives," said Derek.

As part of its ongoing commitment to the sector, Nuance has also released a dedicated Dragon solution for the PC and Mac called Dragon Accessibility. 

"We are really pleased to be able to offer a tailored and high quality communication solution such as Dragon Accessibility because we know that Dragon can make a difference to the lives of people with disability," Derek says.  

Dragon Accessibility will be available from October through Nuance’s Dragon Partners and Accessibility Specialists.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
