Customer Reviews

Very good under iOS 9.

Very good under iOS 9. But has real problems under iOS 10, and Nuance technical support is impossible to get hold of. I only want to call them to report the problem but they do not list a phone number or or an email address to report the problem.
The problem is that the application keeps crashing out and terminating. This is completely repeatable, and I have checked that there are no other applications running and the phone is fresh from a restart. You can reproduce the problem by dictating "testing 123" then selecting the keypad and using backspace to delete the "123". On the third backspace the program terminates.
Otherwise this is a fantastic dictation program but unusable under iOS 10.
I have upgraded to an iPhone 6 Plus with 16 GB and the problem has gone away. So I can say this is an excellent dictation program.

Great app but needs save doc feature

Pretty accurate but such a shame you can't dictate directly into a doc. This company has the best dictating software & it would be good to see them lead the way with iOS dictating apps even if it was paid for. A save doc feature , in app , or import doc feature would be great as many dragon users don't carry the PC/mac laptop anymore, with the ipad. It would be great on the move. & /Or the ability to save dictation which could be uploaded to the PC/mac version later could be useful.

A++ dictation app

Really good app. So simple to use. Adds punctuation and capitals and gives you the option to change words which are not correct. Very accurate even with different accents. Would like to see a feature where there us an option to put straight into a document but it's ok putting into an email and sending it to myself
