Dragon Dictation

Dragon Dictation



Dragon Dictation is an easy-to-use voice recognition application powered by Dragon® NaturallySpeaking® that allows you to easily speak and instantly see your text or email messages. In fact, it’s up to five (5) times faster than typing on the keyboard.

With Dragon Dictation you can also dictate status updates directly to your Social Networking applications (Facebook and Twitter) or send notes and reminders to yourself….all using your voice.  So when you’re on-the-go, stop typing and start speaking – from short text messages to longer email messages, and anything in between.

Dragon Dictation supports a multitude of global languages. For a full list of currently supported languages visit www.dragonmobileapps.com.


Press Reviews:

David Pogue - The New York Times : “I’m finding Dragon to be a much faster, more efficient way to spit out e-mail messages, notes, text messages and Twitter updates. It’s really, really cool.”

Mel Martin - TUAW.com: “Put this into the ‘I didn’t think they could ever get this to work on an iPhone’ category. I’m talking about Dragon Dictation from Nuance, the developers of the very popular Dragon Naturally Speaking for the PC.”

Arik Hesseldahl – BusinessWeek: “For the last few days I’ve been trying two Nuance iPhone apps, Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search on my iPhone. And while they’re not the first voice search or dictation apps for the iPhone, I certainly like the results I’ve been getting.”

iTunes Reviews:

Miker55 – “It’s understood everything I’ve said. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been driving and wanted to text someone but couldn’t. This app is great!!!”

Twebs – “For me Dragon dictation is a game changing application. The accuracy is outstanding and it’s very easy to use. I immediately notified everyone I know with an iPhone to pick up this application while it’s still free.”

Redman042 – “I can’t believe my iPhone can do this. Accuracy is amazingly good and transcription is very fast. You can’t even tell that transcription is being done online. I’m very very impressed.”

Nice in concept and very accurate on my Touch 4th Gen. buuut,

It's not as useful as one might imagine. There are two significant limitations.

The first is one must have an active internet connection. On a Touch this means if you are out in the middle of nowhere then, well, you are out of luck because there is no offline mode. So it's only of use when within range of a wifi connection.

The second significant limitation is the 60-seconds at a whack limit. This means you can only dictate for 60-secs before it phones-home to the Dragon site which I assume is there the voice recognition magic happens. And again is you are on a Touch with wifi another issue can occur, if there is a communication problem with the Dragon site you can lose a full minute of dictation. This has happened to me several times already and I have only been using the app for a few days.

I find the need for an active web connection very disappointing. It means Nuance (the current owner of the Dragon family of dictation products) can't perform the needed processing on the device be it an iPhone, Touch or iPad. Only those people who have very stable web connections or can afford the 3G enabled devices (I suppose the iPhone is by it's nature the best option) will get the most from this app. I like working out of the office and often use a voice recorder or some so I was excited to find this app. Unfortunately it's not a genuinely useful app. Without a doubt it is nice for fast mindless commenting somewhere but as a dictation tool, really look for a more robust solution.

Also the editing commands are sparce to say the least. This would seem to be a function of the processing off-load to the Nuance cloud. No comands like SELECT ALL, SELECT FROM {word|beginning} or other commands we find on the desktop cousins or even the built-in voice app in Win7 (don't know the Apple analog but I am sure there is one in their desktop OS).

Oh, this app also seems to lose your current dictation content if you switch away to check something in another app whether that app is currently running or not. But, I have not checked to see if I did the switching wrong all I know is when I returned the previous dictated content was gone.

Still, it is a nice app and a nice introduction to the world of dictating your letters or what have you. And it's worth following to see how it develops over time. However I don't care if an app is free, because free or not it is supposed to e useful and good at what it does, otherwise why does Apple need to approve an app? I do recommend this with the caveat that it needs a LOT of refinement before it's a business or even home user grade app. In the mean time it's a novelty app.

4/5 stars


This app is great! It has some mistakes though. But you CAN train it. To train it, say something into the mic. If anything was wrong, press the keypad button and delete that word, then replace it with the real word it says. It will save that in it's database and it should be closer of exactly to the thing you say next time. Takes some time, but hey? What the heck? I just wish you didn't have to be connected to the internet.

5/5 stars


January 26, 2011. Review on Dragon Dictation. I'm glad to say the newest update, 1/26/11, has made voice-recognition far better. It used to be the Google voice-recognition picked up my voice fine, and translated it into print just fine. Dragon Dictation did not. This seems to have been sorted out with this last update. I now get Dragon Dictation a full five stars.
My only minor complaint is the "End of Speech Recognition" comes too quickly. I wish it was adjustable for time in seconds for those of us who pause while dictating, or maybe a pause button for gathering thoughts.
(It can be easily disabled by turning off the "End of Speech Recognition" setting.) Try to find someone to take dictation, like Dragon Dictation does, for free.
