Get more out of Dragon speech recognition using a device you already have. Use the free Dragon Recorder app with your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch (4th gen) to conveniently dictate complete memos, reports, or articles – anytime, anywhere. Play back, rewind and fast forward the audio recordings. Then wirelessly transfer the audio files to your Mac or PC for quick and accurate transcription with Dragon speech recognition.

What's New in Version 1.3
Now supports Italian and Spanish
I use this app to dictate notes at the hospital on my iPhone 4S and then upload them to my PC for transcription. It works surprisingly well even with the background noise of the nursing stations. Once you have your file transferred to your computer be sure to simply save it to your hard drive then open it directly with your dragon software. You will have to tap your phone screen during the file transfer as it corrupts if the phone goes into sleep mode during the transfer. You will have to increase the available file size on your computer of you end up with 45 min of dictation at the end of the day as I often do. What I miss and really must be added is the ability to at least back up your recording and then record -over- an error you've just made. Currently you can only back up and listen to your error--not helpful. My dream would be to have both the ability to record over a mistake and the ability to insert at a point in the recording.
No Speech Correction
The produce does a decent job of recording. I don't like the fact that you don't seem to be able to insert dictation other that at the end. When using Bonjour to transfer the audio file, it automatically inserts and "html" extension. You have to go into "info" after right clicking the file and delete the html extension. It does a decent job of transcription but the correction function is grayed out. If you use a microphone attached to the computer to edit the dictation, you can correct the dictation from the recorder, but it won't allow you to save changes to the user profile. So it basically won't learn from any dictation done on the recorder.
Recorded my voice clearly. Saved it well on the iPhone, and then transferred it effortlessly to my computer (over Wi-Fi) where I have Dragon already installed, and the conversion from voice to text was perfect. It took me 30 seconds to set this up and use it. I'm going to be using this regularly now to collect notes while I'm on the go. Then I'll periodically transfer them and transcribe them onto my computer.
