One Response to Dragon for Mac 5 stability issues with Mac OS El Capitan

  1. It would be useful to have a separate downloadable file as I cannot open v5.0 in OS10.11 in order to update. So I updated the app on my laptop and copied to my imp with 10.11. Now Dragon opens, at least, but will not allow me to load a profile – and that only after starting the iMac in safe mode. Some more work needed I think – or at least a workaround.
