Nuance Dragon Anywhere is launching on iOS and Android in autumn this year and will be offered as a subscription based service.
The app will be a cloud-based mobile application that will bring Dragon’s powerful voice dictation and documentation productivity capabilities to mobile devices for the first time.
Nuance said that using its Dragon Anywhere users will be able to create and edit complete reports and documents, capture detailed notes, and more, while on the move. One of the best things about the app, Nuance says, is its cloud-based model that empowers field workers, lawyers, social workers, insurance adjusters, public safety officers, and other professionals to keep up with documentation demands even when they are away from their desks.
Using Dragon Anywhere, professionals can finish a meeting, a site visit, an inspection, or other work in the field and begin documenting the interaction on their mobile device—while the information is still fresh in their mind – to produce more accurate and detailed reports.
Because dictation is captured immediately, they can review and correct on the spot, without having to transcribe a recording later or pay for costly transcription services, which often take days to come back.
Further, Dragon Anywhere creates a powerful cross-device experience, enabling Dragon users to quickly and easily access documents saved to a preferred cloud service from their desktop. Customized vocabularies and auto-texts are also shared across an entire Dragon experience with Dragon Anywhere’s ability to sync with the new Dragon Professional Individual and Dragon for Mac.
Some of the features of Dragon Anywhere are fast dictation and high recognition accuracy; continual learning of a person’s unique voice for improved accuracy; ability to speak for as long as possible so that all the information is captured in accurate manner; robust voice formatting and editing options, including the ability to select words and sentences for editing or deletion, navigate through fields of a report template, and apply common formatting like underline, bold and italics; support for auto-texts; and support for custom words.
You can even import and export files and notes from cloud document-sharing tools like Dropbox, Evernote, so work can be continued from a mobile device or on a desktop
Dragon Anywhere can also be deployed across an enterprise and managed through the Nuance User Management Center. Custom words and auto-texts can be easily managed by an IT administrator and deployed to employees using the app.
“For years, professionals across industries have relied on Dragon on their PCs and Macs for completing the documentation and paperwork requirements that are critical to their businesses, and we are excited to extend that experience to mobile devices with Dragon Anywhere,” said Peter Mahoney, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Dragon. “By leveraging the cloud, Dragon Anywhere provides sophisticated dictation, editing, and formatting capabilities not offered by any other mobile voice dictation application, ensuring that professionals can stay productive wherever their work takes them.”
Dragon Anywhere will be available in English in the US and UK via the App Store and Google Play in autumn 2015.
