Earlier this year, popular speech recognition company Nuance announced that it was launching a new iOS app with a plethora of new voice recognition. We covered the new app in detail in August, but now, Nuance’s Dragon Anywhere app is available on the App Store.
Dragon Anywhere on iOS offers incredibly accurate dictation, all based in the cloud. Nuance touts that the app allows for full documents to be composed on the go, all with your voice, and subsequently shared via services like Dropbox and Evernote.
With the required cloud-based subscriptions, your transcriptions are constantly syncing to the cloud and are always update to date on all of your devices. There’s no time limit on dictation and users can talk uninterrupted throughout the process.
One of the new features of the app is auto-text. This is essentially pre-set document formats. Nuance has demonstrated this with corporations especially. For instance, an insurance company could share a text setup of a claim form with all of their employees. Then, employees could seamlessly dictate the claim into the pre-developed form without having to take anytime to format the document itself.
Dragon Anywhere is available now on the App Store. There’s a one week free trial, after which you’ll need to register for a subscription. Subscriptions range from $15/month to $150/year. The app currently supports US English, although it will be updated “later this year” with UK English and German support.
Nuance Dragon Anywhere Now Available for iOS
iPhone and iPad Users Can Leverage Cloud-Based, Professional-Grade Dictation for Mobile Productivity
Burlington, Mass. – December 3, 2015 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced the availability of Dragon Anywhere for iOS mobile devices. Already available for Android devices, Dragon Anywhere offers continuous, cloud-based dictation – no time or length limits – robust voice formatting and editing, and synchronization of custom features with supported Dragon software for PCs and Macs.
Ideal for field workers, lawyers, social workers, public safety officers, and other professionals who often work outside of an office, Dragon Anywhere allows full documents to be composed, edited, formatted, and distributed via voice, directly from a mobile device. Completed or drafted documents can be shared via email, a cloud-sharing service like Dropbox, or as a note through Evernote, all by voice.
With nearly three-quarters of the total U.S. workforce driving towards mobility by 2020, as forecasted by IDC, maintaining consistent workflows across devices like PCs and Macs with smartphones and tablets will remain central to mobile workforce productivity. Dragon Anywhere offers individuals who need to document and report on-the-go simple ways to continue working, while synchronizing custom words and auto-text commands with desktop devices running Nuance’s Dragon software. Workers who often dictate specialized words, phrases, and customer and product names specific to their business will have the ability to add customized terminology on all of their supported devices, be it a PC, a Mac or an iOS or Android device.
“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,” said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager of Dragon.
