Mac Disc Edition: I have been using Nuance dictation products for over 10 years. I think that Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 for Windows is excellent, despite some clunky user interface design.
But Dragon Dictate for Mac is in a class of its own for software bugs. The software does a pretty good job of following my voice and putting words on the screen. The problem starts any time the user wants to make a change. For example, if a user wants to add a couple of words in the middle of a sentence in a previous paragraph, placing the cursor there and then dictating might get correct words but incorrect placement or punctuation. If I put in a carriage return by hand and put the cursor on a new line, Dragon will insert two spaces before the first character on the line.
Also, sometimes it will not capitalize the first word of that sentence. Oddly, if a previous line in a list ends in a period then it will capitalize the first word of the next line. And so it goes. This becomes irritating very quickly because when the user makes corrections each correction requires further correction. You might find that this process is still faster than typing if you are a slow typist like me. Some readers may think that they will get used to these idiosyncrasies.
This item is not eligible for international shipping. I have extensive experience with several versions of Naturally Speaking for Windows.

Unfortunately the idiosyncrasies are different for each particular Mac program and are a problem even in Dragon's own built-in text editor. You might wonder how Dragon could release a product with such obvious programming errors. It is easy to say that this software is not yet ready for sale and that the bugs need to be worked out. However, this is Dragon's fourth release since BTW, Nuance no longer does reduced pricing for upgrades. Buyers should note that Dragon 4.

Mac Download Edition: Standard Verified Purchase. I have been using Dragon products for about 10 years. I have extensive experience with several versions of Naturally Speaking for Windows. So I'm not a newbie. I was aware that the Mac version was supposed to be "less mature" than the Windows version, but was not prepared for my experience with the product which is that its not "less mature", its totally unusable.
After installing and training it, it worked well for a couple of hours. The next day, and on all subsequent days, its accuracy was much less than it had been on the first day, and much lower than the accuracy of the Windows version with the same type of training.
Even worse, it hangs, so that the microphone goes off and can't be restarted without restarting the program. This happens regularly, about every 15 minutes. This is on a fast Macbook running Yosemite. In my opinion, this product verges on the fraudulent. Don't buy it.
