In August 2015, Nuance Communications announced it would bring a new Dragon title to the iOS App Store. In case you don’t know, Nuance is behind Dragon Dictation and Dragon Naturally Speaking. The new app, Dragon Anywhere, is feature-packed and allows for unlimited dictation without the boundaries of time or length limits.
Nuance touts Dragon Anywhere as having an accuracy rate of 99 percent, allowing for powerful voice editing and formatting options. The app provides a custom dictionary for technical words, along with auto-text across all devices. You should find the dictation to be quite fast, and the accuracy virtually unparalleled in the industry.
Synchronization options abound
Dragon Anywhere will allow synchronization of your custom features with supported Dragon software for PCs and Macs, and you can even import and export your documents to and from popular cloud storage options like Dropbox and note-taking apps such as Evernote. This allows Dragon Anywhere to be used for drafting a document or even completing a file by field workers like lawyers, social workers, public safety officers, and other professionals who often find themselves outside of the office, all while being able to keep their work available to them when they return to the workplace.
Helping the mobile workforce
Dragon Anywhere is already available for Android, and the addition of the iOS app makes it easy for mobile workers to stay more productive. Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager of Dragon, expressed his enthusiasm for the app’s arrival on iOS.
We are excited to expand the availability of Dragon Anywhere to iOS, further empowering the mobile workforce to more easily complete time-consuming documentation and achieve greater levels of productivity away from the office.
Getting Dragon Anywhere
Dragon Anywhere is available as a subscription service in the United States and Canada on the Nuance online store, with multiple subscription options available, including a one-week free trial. Subscriptions range from $15.00 per month to $150.00 per year. Once Dragon Anywhere is purchased through the Nuance online store, the software can be downloaded from the App Store.
