    Voice recognition dictation app: Speak and instantly see your words

    • Speak and see your words immediately
    • Quickly record and share small snippets of text
    • Many languages available
    • Being right in front of the mic is very important
    • 60 second limit on recording

    "Much better than an ancient Egyptian scribe"

    Dragon Dictation is for those moments you want to jot something down but your hands are tied, or you simply want to do it faster than typing by thumbs will let you. Tell the app what language you want to use, press the button, and speak: your words will appear in front of you on the screen, ready for tweeting, posting, emailing, whatever. It can record for up to 60 seconds, so it's great for short messages but perhaps less so for penning your next novel. Accuracy is pretty good, although it helps significantly if you're speaking clearly and directly into the mic of your mobile device.

    Press Reviews:

    David Pogue - The New York Times : “I’m finding Dragon to be a much faster, more efficient way to spit out e-mail messages, notes, text messages and Twitter updates. It’s really, really cool.”

    Mel Martin - “Put this into the ‘I didn’t think they could ever get this to work on an iPhone’ category. I’m talking about Dragon Dictation from Nuance, the developers of the very popular Dragon Naturally Speaking for the PC.”

    Arik Hesseldahl – BusinessWeek: “For the last few days I’ve been trying two Nuance iPhone apps, Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search on my iPhone. And while they’re not the first voice search or dictation apps for the iPhone, I certainly like the results I’ve been getting.”

    iTunes Reviews:

    Miker55 – “It’s understood everything I’ve said. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been driving and wanted to text someone but couldn’t. This app is great!!!”

    Twebs – “For me Dragon dictation is a game changing application. The accuracy is outstanding and it’s very easy to use. I immediately notified everyone I know with an iPhone to pick up this application while it’s still free.”

    Redman042 – “I can’t believe my iPhone can do this. Accuracy is amazingly good and transcription is very fast. You can’t even tell that transcription is being done online. I’m very very impressed.”
