The installation works pretty much flawlessly. However, as a precaution I answer all installation questions in the negative to avoid giving the program extra work.
On first run the program crashes twice. Just re-open and go on.
What does not
Text recognition only runs with other programs running in wine. This is correct functionality, not a bug.
For best results use Notepad or the included DragonPad.
What was not tested
The program has some settings that are not essential to its core function. These were not tested.
The program is a 32-bit program with a 64-bit wrapper. For best results install in a 32-bit wine prefix. Use pulseaudio. set winecfg to Vista and pulseaudio input.

For those who can't get to the disable sidebar option before dragon crashes, you can manually edit the ini file before starting dragon so the sidebar is disabled.
