Option 2

(if Dragon NaturallySpeaking will not load)

  1. Navigate to the folder where Dragon is installed which is usually one of the following:
    • C:\Program Files\Nuance\NaturallySpeaking11
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Nuance\NaturallySpeaking11
      (Folder name will vary based on your version.)
  2. Open the Ereg folder.
  3. Open the ereg.ini file (it is a text file).
  4. Look for a line beginning with Ser_Num=
    The serial number will be written after it.

  1. i tried finding this location a bunch of different ways, but can’t find it.
    i need the serial # for when it asks me at the begining before i install it, so this might be a reason.
    any help?

  2. Nothing comes up when i copy and past the folder to find my serial number I have it installed and used it already it says i can use it two more times before I have to put in the serial number any suggestions

  3. Thanks it worked !

    This saved me from 2 -3 hours of frustration calling Dragon s***upport.

  4. Hello, Nice to be here. I just wanted to encourage you more in your work and wish you good writing all the time.

  5. I used to work at a relative’s computer store for a while, but didn’t know too much about computers but now I feel a slight urge in wanting to know more about new technology – Computer products, Mobile phones, Tablets, etc.

  6. Worked for me with version 12 too. Got a new computer and lost the serial number. Life saver!
