- The overall interface and experience is very accessible with VoiceOver. Most elements are easy enough to instantly grasp of where they are, i.e. buttons, options, etc.
- One major drawback however is that the main display for the output/result of dictation is not readable with VoiceOver. There does not appear any way to access the content other than to copy and paste it into an email, note, or other textbox or window. Although it is more than likely you would be doing this anyway, being able to see the result of your speaking prior to copying and/or sending seems essential to me.
With the exception to the major accessibility flaw, the Dragon Dictation app is solid and dependable. I have already used it for composing emails instead of pecking away at the software keyboard.
