Overview

Nuance is introducing software activation as a protection feature in all of our new products. Product activation helps prevent software piracy and ensure you receive a fully functional software product when purchasing any of our productivity solutions.

Product activation is an anonymous and secure process designed to promote only licensed use of our software. Today most software installed on new computer hardware requires activation. In some instances pre-installed software may be activated at the factory before delivery to the end user.

Activation is a straightforward process. It requires an internet connection but does not request or transfer any of your personal information.

The number of product activations allowed is determined by the software's End User License Agreement (EULA). Please review the EULA when installing the software to make sure you understand the terms of the agreement.

Online Activation

Online activation is a quick, one-time process. Activation occurs right after you enter your product serial number and machine fingerprint. More
