  • I love Dragon!

    By ComesTheSandman
    I don’t understand why anyone would not rate this app 5 Stars. This app isn’t free; it requires a subscription service but you get what you pay for. I have tried other apps that pretend to do what Dragon does and for that reason Dragon has exceeded my expectations.
  • Love my Dragon...

    By Chri5topher
    Love this app and I use it all the time. Speech recognition is accurate! My biggest complaint is that it does not integrate with the Apple Watch!
  • There is no trial period i canceled after 5 days and got charged

    By appskeptical
    I never got around to trying the app, and knew I wouldn’t have time navigate the app. So I canceled after 5 days and got charged anyways. Also finding where and how to cancel isn’t within the app nor easy to find on the digit river website therefore I feel setup. If the application was functional and worked as promised digital river wouldn’t have such a shady way of entrapping payments .
  • More frustrating than helpful

    By Corvec
    I love the idea of being able to use dictation software on the go, but this is unfortunately completely unusable for that purpose. I attempted to use it to write prose. I used it every day for a full month to give it a chance to do any adjustments needed to provide a better experience and it didn't get perceptible better by the end. If the connection is at all shaky, it fails completely. You might say 50 words and get 8 of them picked up (and 3 of those would be incorrect). This is because the transcription is done entirely server side and the application is incapable of handling buffering for more than a couple of seconds. If it tries to send something to the server and the connection is bad, it just fails silently. I would rather have it fallback to an inferior on-device transcription and/or save the audio + output an in-line graphic indicating that there was a connection issue and that it will automatically retry later + allow me to click it to retry it now. Voice commands, at the least, should be able to be parsed on my device. If the connection is amazing - the same times that I would be able to use a full keyboard, generally - it stumbles over all but the simplest phrases, even when I've added them into its word list and pronounced them there. I am from Indianapolis, Indiana, and have about as weak of an accent as you can get - I can only imagine how much worse this would be for someone with a strong accent. The auto-off feature is annoying and not customizable. It turns off when I'm waiting for the previous phrase to parse. It turns off when I'm thinking. And there's no wake phrase to turn it back on without physically pressing the decide (like "Dragon Go" or something). There is no way to distinguish between identically pronounced words in this app, and it doesn't even try to figure it out based on context. It's vs it's, there / they're / their, John / Jon (even if you have Jon added as a word, it will use John). There is no way to correct a mis-transcribed word. You can attempt to select it - sometimes you would get a completely different instance of the same or a similarly pronounced word - and then repeat the word or phrase. But then you'll most often just get the same phrase again. And unless you manually leave your document and enter the correct word every time this happens, this will keep happening. Even if you do enter the phrase, sometimes it will keep happening; sometimes it won't. And I have no clue why. I would expect that, upon importing a document, words and phrases already in the document would be transcribed preferentially over similar-sounding alternatives. They are not; this software does not have this feature. There is no way to get the voice recognition recording that was used, so you have to review and perform corrections by hand while the memory of what you tried to type is fresh in your mind. Otherwise you'll find yourself staring at garbage text that bears no resemblance to what you wanted. Voice commands are inconsistent. Sometimes I would say a navigation phrase and get that phrase verbatim in my text, e.g., "scratch that." Sometimes nothing would happen at all. If this were a free perk of the desktop software, and if it included all the voice training performed there, then I'd be willing to give the pair a try. As is, I'm more efficient typing with one thumb.
  • Soft voice with headset works great!

    By Cjiver
    I had purchased a Dragon Naturally Speaking system for my computer years ago but the software really had a hard time understanding my soft voice so I put it aside. Obviously Nuance has made major improvements since then. Using the headset that came with that system and my IPhone 8 Dragon Anywhere works great! I’ve found if I purposefully speak up and speak a little bit slower than normal it works great. I’m giving it 4 stars because I think the price is a bit steep.
  • Ap great but lil rip-off happens

    By Ryae1
    So the ap is good - does what is promised. As many reviewers note, the customer service is wretched! If you do the trial and roll into the monthly subscription you cannot go back and easily change it to the $40/3 mos listed on website or the 150/year. As soon as I don’t need it I will be canceling. Too expensive and I feel really ripped-off
  • Can’t believe i didn’t buy this sooner!

    By Beth a gilmore girl fan
    I write novels. This saves so much time by typing for me I can focus in my creativity n my scenes are better because you are speaking outloud. I sent the docs via email, save in word n paste in scriver. Great way to save time and work from anywhere!
  • This company has always had the worst service assistance possible

    By deborahpib
    When it works it’s better then Siri.... however be warned... this company has one of the worst service departments of any for software. I have used dragon for years and each time it takes hours to fix software issues where it declares war with other software. So I was happy to see an application where I could finally stop using via computers and stop wasting hours trying to get their software to just work... but now I find the application has disappeared off my iPhone and surprise surprise it will not accept any login to acknowledge me now....and to get any help from nuance you have to PAY them to help you make their own app work... if I had not paid for the year, I could just re-install it under a new email and maybe it would actually work. But now I have to deal with trying to get it to work on a email it will not acknowledge.
  • Horrendous customer service

    By flcounsel
    I have been a Dragon Anywhere subscriber from day one. I have had nothing but problems with the subscription service. And good luck trying to get through to technical support. The product itself is pretty good. Today four calls got me absolutely nowhere except for unanswered music on the last call. About one hour completely wasted. They must be saving quite a bit of money by using people with limited English to field customer support questions. And poor quality VOIP telephone systems. But they must not factor in all the lost revenue from people who become frustrated with things that should be really easy made hard and frustrating. On the third call, I pointed out to the customer support representative that she was about to send me to the wrong department . I asked for her employee number, nicely, and she said she couldn’t give me that information. You’ve got to be kidding me. As it stands, it looks like I have been charged $150 for one year of service. But of course it’s not linking up with my phone. I’m about ready to give up forever. For those interested in a similar service, check out Just Press Record. You can dump those recordings right into your Dragon desktop software.
  • Dragon is the real deal!

    By visionxcl
    I almost never write reviews. But as someone who needs to use voice to text in my life I am extremely disappointed in Siri. I do frequently have to use technical terms but even when I don't it's scary to see the number of auto correct errors in makes. When I looked for an alternative voice to text program I can honestly say Dragon has turned out to be everything I dreamed it could. From the most technical jargon I use to the most basic speech has incredible capabilities and is easily trainable. You have both the option to indicate phonetically how it should sound and if that is not effective go into the vocabulary you've created special words hit the train button and I've yet to see it fail after one single pronunciation to train even complex words. This program is expensive relative to others but when you consider its incredible sophistication for me it is a game changer. While this review does not contain any real complicated language it was written by me on Dragon one attempt. I have no interest financially in this product and happen to be a physician and involved in pharmaceutical development.
