Nuance Communications has announced the availability of Dragon Anywhere for Android and iOS devices in Australia.
Powered by the cloud, Dragon Anywhere delivers the features of Dragon Desktop speech recognition to mobile devices.
“Dragon Anywhere is all about empowering the user. The app lets Australians who are on the go and out in the field maximise their document productivity. They can complete forms, take notes, and create and share documents in real- time, quickly and easily by voice, and regardless of whether they are using a smartphone or tablet,” said Derek Austin, Sales Director, Asia Pacific, Dragon Professional and Consumer Division.
“Dragon Anywhere delivers the capability, convenience and flexibility Australian professionals need to stay productive and efficient wherever their work takes them.”
There are no time or length constraints on the documents users choose to dictate, and once completed, documents can be shared by email, via cloud-sharing tools like Dropbox, saved to note-taking apps like Evernote or shared with almost any app via the clipboard.
Dragon Anywhere offers a cross-device experience with Windows and Mac OS by integrating with the Dragon Professional Individual for PC and Dragon Professional Individual for Mac desktop products.
Nuance also unveiled Dragon Anywhere Group, a secure, cloud-based professional-grade, mobile dictation solution for enterprise. With Dragon Anywhere Group, data is transmitted via the cloud through 256-bit encryption. It includes management tools with the Nuance Management Centre, a web or on-premise management environment that enables central administration at a user, group, site or organisation-wide level.
“As a rehabilitation counsellor, it is important that I efficiently and accurately capture my notes after meeting with individuals in our program,” said Mindy Collins, MAC, Rehabilitation Counsellor for Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services.
“My experience using Dragon Anywhere has been very positive – it was user-friendly and customisable for my specific work needs. Dragon Anywhere’s accuracy alone has helped me gain hours back to my workweek. It has been an incredible productivity tool for my profession.”
Dragon Anywhere for Australia is available as a subscription service and can be purchased through the Nuance online store. Subscriptions start at AUD $22 per month to AUD $220 per year, and a one-week free trial is also available.
