Speech Recognition + Dictation: Nuance Dragon Anywhere, for mobile devices now available for Android and iOS in the UK
Nuance Communications just announced the UK availability of Dragon Anywhere for Android and iOS, bringing the productivity features of Dragon desktop speech recognition to mobile devices for the first time. Available in UK English for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets and powered by the cloud, Dragon Anywhere is the only mobile dictation solution that offers continuous dictation – with no time or length limits – robust voice formatting and editing, and customisation features that can be synchronized across devices.
Dragon Anywhere allows field workers, lawyers, social workers, public safety officers and other professionals to increase productivity by using their voice to create and edit complete reports and documents, capture detailed notes, and more, while on the go or in the field. Dragon Anywhere’s continuous dictation capabilities run in the cloud, allowing documents to be created without a time or length limit on dictation. Once a document is complete, it can be shared easily by email, via cloud-sharing tools like Dropbox, saved to note-taking apps like Evernote or shared with virtually any app via the clipboard.
Dragon Anywhere offers a seamless cross-device experience with PCs and Macs by integrating with the new Dragon Professional Individual and Dragon for Mac desktop products. Key customisation features like auto-texts and custom words that are created with Dragon Anywhere can be automatically synchronized with Dragon Professional Individual and Dragon for Mac, and vice versa, ensuring that professionals can maintain consistent workflows across their devices, share custom terminology, and remain productive. Like the Dragon desktop products, Dragon Anywhere improves on its initial high level of accuracy by growing more accurate over time as it learns a person’s unique voice. Because Dragon Anywhere is a cloud-based solution, it can be accessed from multiple mobile devices with a single subscription.
Dragon Anywhere is available as a subscription service in UK English on the Nuance online store, with multiple subscription options including a one-week free trial and subscriptions starting at £14.99 per month to £149.99 per year. Once Dragon Anywhere is purchased through the Nuance online store, the app can be downloaded in Google Play and in the Apple App Store. Dragon Anywhere requires iOS 8.1 or higher (iPad 3+, iPhone 5+, iPad Mini 1+) or Android 4.4+ phones and tablets.
