Dragon Anywhere App Tips & Tricks

Dragon Anywhere Reviews


Great dictation... made cumbersome in awful app  sandimas  2 star

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.


Very good, could be great  npath  4 star

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  Kathy1970H  1 star

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  davidljung  3 star

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  Andyz151  1 star

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  CJDaniel  1 star

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  Jcer1234  1 star

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  Too.much.coffee  1 star

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  bearister2746  3 star

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  rblum55  5 star

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.

Sorry, but you're not going anywhere, Father. You and I can destroy the fell dragon by awakening the true power in our blood!

@Imaginedragons y'all just keep growing and getting better and better! I've been a dragon from the word 'go' and I'm not going anywhere !


This is the killer app  liblong  5 star

This is the one Ive been waiting to be created: You talk. It understands you and It types what you said. It understands most everything I say and what it doesn't it make it easy to correct with voice or dictionary of saved words and continues learning as I use it. The implementation of all this requires little study and is very intuitive. It's the first app that I've used that I don't have to wait around for: either correcting what went wrong or waiting for my voice to get processed into text. I still have to put in a little more effort and study the full offering of editing commands, after that I will have finally reached the holy keyboard-less Grail.

Can't stop building

Poor support, serious billing glitches  Can't stop building  1 star

Update(8/17/16). I will continue to give them a 1 star. Dragon gave me 3 months of usage free. But the program malfunctioned and I lost 5 hours of work, worth thousands of dollars. I found out that there is no back up to this system at all. What a waste of time! The automatic save feature will save the error over the original document, and there is no backup. Poor design and no protection for the customers. A piece of garbage that should have never been released. Update(6/7/16). I have used the product for another month and has been trying to extend the subscription by 3 months or 1 year. The billing department is now based in the U.S. The system would not let me renew my subscription. Even after I called the billing department, and gave them three different valid credit cards (Visa, Paypal, and Amex), and their system still can't make the charge go through. The payment system on Nuance for this product, hosted by Digital River, is pathetic at best. BTW, Digital Rivers blames glitches in the Nuance app for their billing problems. My billing history shows that I have done nothing but trying to give them money, which they won't take. Not a good start for a launch of an otherwise promising product. Finally, both the Digital River and the Nuance Dragon Anywhere team are more or less indifferent to the inconvenience of the users. There was not a scintilla of apology from any of the reps other than "we'll look into it." Original review: All of the support team is based somewhere in Asia, either India or the Philippines. While they are polite, they are also useless. There might as well be no customer support. No product support, no customer service, can't resolve billing issues. Despite the soft voice, the answers are typically a resounding "no" or "sorry we can't help you," or "sorry we can't do that." A total waste of time. I give the product a 4 star, it works well. But the support is very bad. I am continuing with the month to month to see if Nuance will improve or let the product die as a result of bad service.


Worked Well, No Formatting Control?  Phone1946  3 star

+ Great accuracy - No way to change how the text is formatted in emailed word documents - No way to put text in a header - No way to use a pre-typed form with fields - Works with Evernote (which now limits the basic plans excessively)


Great App, Well Done!  matt_fast1  5 star

I have really enjoyed using this app. It is quite accurate and recognizes most medical terms. I still love this app. Speech recognition is excellent. If you add an external mic the recognition improves even more.


Excellent for on the go  Mwalimu_B  5 star

This is an excellent addition to dragons voice recognition software, especially since it links to EVERNOTE which I happen to use and while I've only been using it a few days so far so good with the accuracy of the voice recognition.


Dragon anywhere-simply wonderful!  Oz:1  5 star

I have been using Dragon Anywhere fairly intensely for about one month. It is head and shoulders above any other dictation/transcription app that I have found. And I have been looking hard for about two years. It is much more effective than Siri. It's not perfect but it has greatly increased my productivity. One suggestion I would make is to have a keyboard pop up which had arrows to go back and forth during sentence correction. Also, it would be nice if you could print directly from the app. As it is you have to paste it somewhere else prior to printing. That would be helpful but overall the app is wonderful.


Amazing productivity tool  BostonTechExec  5 star

I have been using Dragon Anywhere for a couple months now and I continue to be amazed by the accuracy of the voice recognition. I use Dragon Anywhere on my iPad as a part of my daily workflow. I use GoodNotes for handwritten notes during meetings and then I use Dragon Anywhere after the meeting to quickly expand on my handwritten notes while the thoughts are fresh in my mind. I have found that it is allowed me to capture my notes in a much more detailed way. I also do some blogging and I've really enjoyed leaning back in my armchair and using my iPad with Dragon Anywhere to write articles. I also really like the new Evernote integration – I'm a big fan and regular user of Evernote, so this made my notetaking even more efficient. Some people have been complaining about the price of the service ($15 per month or $150 per year) – and at that price, it clearly isn't a generic consumer tool. For me, it is worth it for the dramatic improvements I've seen in my notes in the increased output of my writing. I'd love to see some kind of direct integration into email in a future version.

Test Dummy


NUANCE ..... ARE YOU LISTENING. I have tried repeatedly to login to technical support. I have the a Dragon Anywhere subscription and the desktop application for MacOS. The Dragon Anywhere app for iPhone is buggy. The potentially useful feature of AutoText and adding Vocabulary are defective. The Add field button is so close to the top of the screen that the app exits without saving. The ability to add a word to vocabulary simply doesn't work as advertised. What needs to be done is to select the word....COPY the word....then REACTIVATE the microphone.....then say ADD to VOCABULARY...then you are taken to a blank entry to paste the copied word. You then must return to the document page. This is SIX steps to add ONE WORD. How about press and hold and present the option? How hard would that be? Login is a nightmare. ? Tech support ???? Recognition is good. Please update the app with usability improvements. The ability to email to a default address is a major plus. Please incorporate time saving shortcuts as suggested above. Please don't make your subscribers use the App Store to voice complaints and suggestions.

Dragon Go  Scott L, CFP  5 star

I've been enjoying my mobile version of Dragon for the last few days. It's been incredibly easy to dictate, and then delegate to my team at the office. The interface works easily, with multiple forwarding features. Translating my voice is as close to perfect as I found in dictation software. I only wish that the settings would permit me to change the email font size greater than 9 points in the output.


Worst ever  ByChaib  1 star

When the update came out it locked up and have not been able to access since but still getting charged for it
