  • Inconsistent dictation accuracy

    By ccjernigan
    I have been using Dragon products since 2005. I also was the system architect at a large tech company for an AI speech system around 2014-2016. So I have a a bit of familiarity with speech recognition technology. On my iPhone XS, the dictation vastly exceeds Apple’s built-in dictation and I really appreciate the ability to edit dictation by voice. If this quality carried over to my iPad, I would rate the app five stars. On my 11 inch iPad Pro, however, this app is basically nonfunctional. It seems like the voice activity detection isn’t working correctly, as it cuts off the beginning and end of speech, while also having accuracy issues in the middle of the utterance. If I hold my iPad perpendicular to my mouth so that I’m speaking into the top of the device, (where two of the microphones are), that seems to help a little bit. Since Nuance seems to have no reasonable way to contact them for support (their website says they charge users $19.95 to report bugs by phone), I am writing this one star review. I hope this review gets someone’s attention, so that this bug can be addressed.
  • Please fix the glitches

    Ever since the new iOS update, the context screen with “Select, copy, paste” appears and floats on the screen, obscuring the text. It will not go away unless I close the app.
  • Requires a paid subscription

    By Henry Anderson
    After a short 7-day trial period, you must pay to use the app.
  • Needs a DragonAnywhere Keyboard

    By ianmccl
    The core of this product is the best dictation software available on the market. But I am amazed that they have not yet found a way to integrate the app into the keyboard to allow dictation in the Mail app, for instance. That is the only drawback in my opinion, but it is a BIG one.

    Beware Dragon Amywhere no longer works with I-pad once with the new operating system. I tried it on 2 separate I-pads with no luck! It still works on I-Phone running the latest IOS but not I-Pad.
  • IPad Pro + Philips speechmike premium Dictaphone (via USB-C)

    By Ssb012
    I have been pleasantly surprised with how this application works on the iPad Pro (2018). I have been able to plug in a Phillips SpeechMike (LF H3500) using an adapter into the USB port. Pressing the in app icon to activate dictation activates the Phillips microphone. This greatly improves the accuracy and ease of dictation on the iPad. I have been able to program some of the buttons on the microphone to do some simple keyboard shortcuts such as selecting recently dictated text. Unfortunately, there are no keyboard shortcuts built into the app. I would encourage the developers to strongly consider adding keyboard shortcuts, including the ability to toggle the microphone by keyboard, as this would allow for these commands to be mapped to a microphone plugged into the USB port. This would be a huge productivity booster. I have not extensively evaluated the Phillips Speech Mike, but have found it to be reasonably reliable. I programmed keyboard shortcuts using the Phillips application and by setting the microphone into the "keyboard mode." Dictation accuracy has been superb in my limited testing. Great potential!
  • Paid for subscription. Says subscription expired.

    By Brad Isaac
    Bought a three month subscription today. For error reported my subscription had expired. Tried logging out and back in, but their login system is broken. I have reset my password no less than five times today and still it gives a login error every time. Very frustrating app done the wrong way.
  • Used it before, but not working well now

    By Crisses
    I've used Dragon since 1994 on and off. I had Dragon Anywhere last year and it was working well. I just reupped for a month and immediately am having problems where I speak and it stops mid-sentence, it doesn't parse “period” and it is not keeping up with my steady pace of speaking that Dragon has worked with for over 2 decades. I’m pretty sure it's not me. Native New Yorker using the apple headset on both iPad Pro and iPhone S.E. something is up with the software. If I have to keep repeating myself, I may as well get my money back.
  • Love this App except...

    By Boesh
    I love this app in so many ways. It is easy to use, carries all of the powerful ability that much of the desktop version does, and yet there is one thing that really hurts it in my opinion...the price. I hate that this is a subscription rather than an upfront and outright purchase. I would probably be ok with it if the cost was $5/mo but $15/mo is crazy high. Do you get what you pay for with this app? I think so. If your company or business will cover the subscription, don’t think twice and get it. If you’re an everyday Joe looking for the ability to dictate on your phone without bells and whistles...definitely better options out there.
