      The Best Microphone for Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac

      This microphone is the clearly the best for voice transcription/voice recognition utilizing Dragon Dictate for Mac. I recently was using the Tablemike 9 in 1 mi This microphone is the clearly the best for voice transcription/voice recognition utilizing Dragon Dictate for Mac. I recently was using the Tablemike 9 in 1 microphone, and when that item became inoperable, I tried the Apogee product. I have an old mini DAC from Apogee and love their products. While the Tablemike product is good, the Apogee microphone is far superior in my use, resulting in a noticeable improvement in accuracy. This has saved me a great amount of time and clearly justifies the price of the product. The Apogee microphone also is far better, in terms of accuracy, when compared to the internal microphone in my MacBook Pro Retina model that I have been using with the Nuance voice recognition software. The Apogee MiC Digital Microphone is very highly recommended in this particular utilization.

      No Longer Works With IOS 10.3.x GarageBand 2.2.1

      Good mic. But it no longer works correctly with GarageBand 2.2.1 iOS 10.3.x. Worked before th 10.3 update. I used it for about a month before the 10.3 update an Good mic. But it no longer works correctly with GarageBand 2.2.1 iOS 10.3.x. Worked before th 10.3 update. I used it for about a month before the 10.3 update and have been waiting for a fix since. Wish I would have returned it to the Apple store and just bought it again when and if apple fixes the issue. It still shows compatible with my devices iPhone and mac on apple store. Not totally true if you plan to use it with Garageband. The problem is delay introduced with the 10.3 iOS update. It still works fine on Mac Sierra 10.12.5.
