We are Certified Resellers and have the most Certified Trainers working for us in NZ, we have been providing Nuance Dragon solutions in NZ for over 13 years. Able to ship the entire Dragon range for both Windows and Mac machines with educational, government and volume pricing available. Voice Power NZ Ltd is also one of the few companies able to supply Volume License Agreements (VLAs) for Dragon Legal and Dragon Professional Group.

Volume License Agreements (VLAs)
The Nuance VLA is a convenient, easy to use volume purchasing program designed to enable end user customers to maximize their savings potential on their Nuance products and support purchased for internal use. A certificate based program, the VLA allows companies to license software for use, rather than purchase “boxed” products. This reduces manufacturing costs by eliminating the cost of media, documentation, packaging, warehousing, and shipping. These savings are then passed on to the customer in the form of a discount off the standard price. It is easy to qualify for the VLA with its low initial purchase requirement.


Dragon Medical Value Added Reseller, we are a recognised leading provider of Dragon Medical Practice Edition, the award winning speech recognition solution, and able to supply Dragon Medical Volume Licence Agreements (VLAs). Nuance has appointed a select number of Dragon Partners as Healthcare Solutions Partners in this region. Selected based on experience and proven ability to support and integrate installations in healthcare and enterprise environments, we supply Dragon Medical to both Private and Public Healthcare sectors.



As an Olympus Reseller, we have been working with their dictation solutions for over a decade and we are familiar with most workflow needs, from medical practitioners to Pathology cutup labs, single lawyers to large law firms. With the support and backup of the NZ Distributor and Olympus Professional Dictation international we can manage and support your entire dictation requirements.

Michael Clark
South Island & Disability

Michael has been involved in teaching and education for over 40 years and has seen again and again the need for assistive technology.
His interest in assistive and adaptive technology led to Dragon NaturallySpeaking and complimentary third party products. His work with dyslexic students drove an interest in the product TextHelp Read & Write Gold.

Seeing young people using assistive technology to remove barriers and becoming industry leaders reinforced Michael’s belief that the provision of effective technology and appropriate training could empower people with disabilities (whanau hauā). Michael is now responsible for supplying J-Say, Jaws and TextHelp Read & Write Gold in NZ.

Having worked with Dragon since 2000 he provides installation, training and call out support to the greater Canterbury region.
