3. Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12

A lot of people, especially those who are not professional typists, find it faster and easier to “speak” their reports into a computer than to type them in through a keyboard. The Windows-based Dragon NaturallySpeaking (DNS) software package does an outstanding job of converting those spoken words into text.

The software will also transcribe just about anything, classroom lectures, interviews, etc.  that’s been recorded with a digital voice recorder (DVR).

Besides, if you’re not use to either a keyboard or a mouse, this software program will enable you use voice commands for controlling your PC.

With autumn on the way, look for a new release of DNS.

4. Carbonite

Amazing software is Carbonite, it is the grim reality. PC hard drives may become faulty and fail sometimes, and laptops can get lost or stolen. Computers may be spoiled by floods and other natural disasters. Then what happens to all of those course materials and reports in progress?

But, with the use of cloud backup software such as Carbonite, you can make sure that you won’t lose valued computer-based information by storing a copy of it on a server in a data center.

If you couple Carbonite with Mirror Image, which is comprised in the subscriptions for the Home Plus and Home Premium editions — you can back up all of your software applications and system files, as well. You can find this software in Windows, versions XP through 8, and for Mac OS X.

5. Norton AntiVirus

Computer gets attacked by virus due to file we open and sites we visit, there is therefore every need to protect your computer against such attack and the best software to use is Norton Antivirus.

Norton AntiVirus is one of the most effective remedies out there, according to our team of expert reviewers. It runs on all versions of Windows, from XP through Windows 8 (although Windows 8 also includes some built-in protection through Windows Defender).

The 2013 version of NAV offers a slicker user interface, a better version of SONAR threat detection, and an enhanced update service.

6. FluidMath

FluidMath is yet amazing software for those who want the freedom to handwrite their math work, but on a PC. This software works by converting your handwriting into formulas and let you to graph solutions on the digital paper. Equally, it will convert equations to text.

It can also work in combination with assignments, so you can handwrite your solutions without needing to do them on paper. Use it to tackle a number of different forms of math.

FluidMath is free to try, then will cost $15 for the in-app upgrade.

7. Advanced System Optimizer

Like any PC, a student’s computer can become cluttered up with software “junk” in places like the Windows System Registry and Web browser cache.

As a result, the PC can start to slow down, freeze up, or even crash.

Advanced System Optimizer (ASO) is one of the most effective   Windows system management tools suites aimed at scanning the computer and at detecting and applying the right fixes.

8. Netflix

You know what they say, “All work without play make jack a dull boy” sometime a student just need to entertain himself by watching movie and the best software for this purpose is the Netflix, one of the biggest software that allow you to watch every movie you can ask think of. To watch movie on Netflix demands that you register with them before viewing movies

9. Spotify

Apart from movie, another that can keep you entertained is music and this is where spotify become important.  Additionally to its enormous database of over 15 million tracks for streaming music, Spotify supplies great tools for finding tunes, creating playlists, and sharing them on social networks.

Spotify provides downloadable apps for PCs, Macs, and mobile platforms like iOS and Android, along with a new Web player which works with major browsers.

Although a free streaming music service is available, subscriptions priced at $4.99 and $9.99 per month bring more features, such as a radio mode and — in the Premium edition — offline listening.

10. OneCalendar


When you head off to school for another year, you’re bound to be greeted with yet another online account. If you already have a Google, Microsoft, or iCloud account, you’ll find yourself having to keep tabs on multiple calendars.

OneCalendar is free software that adds a little more visual flair than the standard option that comes with Windows 10. There’s a $5 upgrade for extra features like modifying the color schemes and extra ways to tweak the interface.

The free version should get the job done for most, as it’ll allow you to add in all your different accounts and avoid the need to check multiple calendars.
