#1: If you're planning on using the WNC-1500 with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12.5, you will need to create a new profile. You cannot use this microphone on an existing profile or as a new sound source because NaturallySpeaking will mistaken the wireless USB device as a Bluetooth dongle. Note that this is not an issue with earlier versions of Dragon.
#2: The WNC-1500 does not work with Mac OS X El Capitan
#3: In order to save power, the WNC-1500 automatically powers down after 5 minutes of non-use which, depending on your dictation style, may help or hinder.
