Hardware & Internet Requirements for Dragon Medical One
Dragon Medical One does not have the stringent requirements of Dragon Medical Practice Edition. That said, there are some important Internet requirements that need to be attended to for DMO to run smoothly.
The following specifications apply to PCs. For macOS where Parallels or Boot Camp are deployed, the Windows component must meet the below specifications (not the Mac).

Internet Access Requirements
Dragon Medical One is a cloud-based speech recognition solution. A company will frequently have firewall rules and / or content filters which limit internet access. In order to install and properly operate this solution, you must be able to access the following Internet domains and ports.
|80||Software distribution and installation, training videos.|
|443||Secure channel for speech recognition service.|
Smartphone & Microphone
With Dragon Medical One, use your Android or iPhone as a microphone. Remote in to your office computer and use DMO as if you were physically there.
Mix and match between Smartphone and microphone depending on your workflow and environment.
Handheld vs Headset
If the physician dictates numerous short bursts of dictation throughout the day without the need for being hands-free, then a hand-held microphone is very useful.
If, on the other hand, the physician dictates only a couple of times per day or needs to work hands-free (i.e. physically handling charts and notes), then a microphone headset would be more appropriate.
Both a wired and wireless solution are available for headset and handheld microphones.
Install Dragon Medical One on as many PC computers as required.
Each user of DMO may have their subscription implemented on the same computer without compromising one another’s DMO user profile (only use your subscription account of DMO; never any one else’s).
As the DMO user profile is in the cloud, learning and refinements are updated in the cloud and available to you no matter which computer you use.
