Using Nuance Software with Microsoft Office 365 applications
Microsoft Office 365 offers either online versions of the Microsoft Office applications (such as Word, Outlook and Excel) through a web browser or enables you to download desktop versions of the Office applications (or both depending on the Microsoft Office product).
When using Office Online, the Office applications are not actually installed on the local computer, they are accessed as Web Apps.
The following Nuance Desktop products support dictation only when running Office 365 Online:
- Dragon Professional Individual
- Dragon Legal Individual
- Dragon Professional Group
- Dragon Legal Group
Note: Full Text Control and Natural Language Processing (NLP) are not supported when running Office 365 Online.
The following Nuance Desktop products are not supported when running Office 365 Online:
- Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 13 and earlier
- PDF Converter Professional
Note: Nuance Desktop products may have application add-ins (such as toolbar buttons) that are typically enabled in Microsoft Office desktop applications to improve the experience. When running Microsoft Office Online, these application add-ins will not be enabled. Additionally, using Dragon to dictate into Office Online applications may require the use of the Dragon Dictation Box.
To take advantage of all the features of Nuance Desktop products, we recommend using a local installation of Microsoft Office. Certain subscription plans to Microsoft Office 365 include the local desktop version of Microsoft Office. For more information on Microsoft Office 365, please click here.
