  • Great dictation... made cumbersome in awful app

    By sandimas
    Excellent dictation, but a fatal flaw. There is no Bluetooth support on iOS. The user manual for the software/service says that it supports Bluetooth on Android devices. So, if you plan to use this on your iPhone with an AirPod or some other Bluetooth headphone, you can forget it. Perhaps, Dragon should give iOS users 75% off on the $15 subscription until they can sort out how to enable Bluetooth. Overall, the software is so clunky. It's unfortunate that such amazing dictation is trapped in the body of such a subpar app. They figured out how to do the hard part and couldn't pull off the layup. --- updated June 26, 2017 After two months of trying Dragon Anywhere, I cancelled my Dragon subscription. It ultimately came down to the fact that it is a terrible piece of software that traps and shackles a wonderful power of dictation. The dictation knocks the pants off Siri. Unfortunately, without smooth ways to input and output content, it becomes a chore to use, and unworthy of a $15/month subscription. The following would begin to address concerns: 1) enable bluetooth input on iOS. Without wireless voice entry, the dream of dictation without tethering is lost. That bluetooth voice entry can be done on Android and not on iOS is inexcusable. 2) Better Dropbox and iCloud integration of dictated text. I won't spell out the details of what is lacking and how it can be fixed. It's sort of obvious, and if the developers can't figure it out on their own, then perhaps it is best that Dragon Anwhere remains in the fringe. 3) $15/month is darn steep. Dragon could make a lot more money by decreasing the monthly rate, which would increase the number of subscriptions. My guess is that they haven't done a very thorough analysis of their business model and are missing out on visibility and profit. 4) customer support is weird and awful. I navigated through their pages and submitted a question regarding bluetooth to Nuance. After a day or two, I got a reply and was told "...we would recommend calling Digital River ( 888-372-1908 option 3). This department handles Dragon Anywhere. They may be able to answer your inquiry about Bluetooth Headset Support." When I call Digital River, I learn they handle billing, customer service --- but, their not the technical brains behind the development of the software. Basically, I get the picture of a technically-stellar company (Nuance) that is awesome at their core expertise (Dictation) and has no clue about business models, user interface, and everything else that could transform their dictation platform into having broad and powerful impact. Too bad. Apple ought to buy the whole darn thing.... except the history of acquisitions is unkind to the core technology.

    Please give a medical dictionary option. Please add Box support. Please update more frequently. Please stop turning off the microphone, unless the the user requests so. Please add a more refined training option for incorrect words. Thank you. I will continue to pay and look forward to improvements.
  • Too many errors

    iOS built-in voice to text is much more accurate. After trying this product for several days there are numerous problems that make it not only not worth paying for but also irritatingly deficient. 1. Inability to remember corrected pronouns such as iOS does. 2. Suddenly stops working for no apparent reason during the middle of the paragraph. 3. After getting a paragraph or two correct suddenly seems to be confused and changes the words completely. Maybe this is because none of the processing is done on the phone but in the cloud. But the times I am referring to all had continuous Wi-Fi connectivity. I would not pay $1.99 per month let alone $15 per month for such ineptitude.
  • Beware it won't function without subscription

    By davidljung
    Note that this app won't even get past the first screen without signing up for a monthly subscription (1st week free, but auto-renewing). Their last app went abandoned for 4 years without an update...
  • Couldn't log and support was no help

    By Andyz151
    Most frustrating experience I've ever had. Couldn't login, kept saying email and password didn't match even though they were correct. Tried to change password- just in case - kept saying can't reach server. But I entered an incorrect password just to test it and it said password not in our system so it was able to connect. Call support but got less than no help from them. How's less than no help possible? They transferred me all around and I wasted two hours of my life on this product that won't work and no one really seemed interested in fixing it - though they'd been well trained to say they were sorry I was having a problem. Maybe it works for other people but I can't access it and it just left me incredibly annoyed and frustrated.
  • Great Idea, Terrible Product and Customer Service

    Product works most of the time, but when it doesn't, you have no way of knowing. You just lose all of your information. Been on the phone tree all day going in circles with this company. Have fun talking to third world countries about their billing practices and problems with their billing.
  • Does not work with Bluetooth

    By Jcer1234
    Does not work with Bluetooth microphone of any kind. This needs to be a staple for an app like this. Only reason I bought this app was because I expected this feature.
  • Can't get it to work

    By Too.much.coffee
    Ordered on line. They took the funds immediately and I have yet to get the program to work. I followed directions exactly and it will not accept my log in information. No amount of "retry" or "password reset" works. It keeps saying "server not available". It has been three days. Very frustrating.
  • Dragon anywhere is just about the same as Dragon naturally speaking

    By bearister2746
    I gave the app three stars instead of five because the Dragon anywhere program is just about as attentive to what you say to it as the online or on desktop program. Even if I follow the directions that come with the app the command still don't seem to work as they're supposed to. I wasted a lot of time today trying to get this thing to work properly. I think it's generally a good product, just not as good as Nuance tells us it is. Their support system is also pretty bad. Well her products are good customer support is very bad.
  • Near perfect recognition

    I have been using voice recognition over many years and I am thrilled that there is now a voice to text application on my iOS devices that is nearly perfect with easy uploads to Word,DropBox, and as an email. Recognizes conversation and technical words.
