Is there a Dragon Medical 12? What Edition do I upgrade to?

Nuance changed the name of the product with the previous version (Dragon® Medical Practice Edition). As a result, they have restarted the version number from 1 (although Dragon® Medical Practice Edition was never referred to as Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 1).

The Dragon® Medical Practice Edition products are based on the Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional core, with numerous additional medical related features such as vocabularies and functionality.

Please refer to the following chart to understand the sequence of release.

Please note that Nuance has a 2 version upgrade policy. Therefore if you currently possess Dragon® Medical 10, you are strongly encouraged to upgrade now, otherwise you will pay full price when Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 3 is released.
