Upgrade Notations important dragon upgrade information

Speakeasy Solutions highly advises creating a new Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 user profile rather than using an upgraded/converted Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 user profile. This will yield best results with the software.

Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 1 users cannot upgrade their user profiles at all. Moreover, there is no upgrade path from Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 1 to Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 4. A full priced license must be purchased.

Particularly for Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 1 users, export your custom commands and custom word lists before installing Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4. Import these into a new Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 user profile.
