I had Dragon when it first hit the market. I decided to return to it again. It has gotten even better!
Is there a current problem with the server. Can't change password. App freezes up.
When it works, Dragon is a wonderful app. Often it doesn’t work, and it is IMPOSSIBLE to navigate their support website or contact their support department reliably. The app simply stopped functioning on my IPad Pro (microphone icon turns green and spins like it’s processing, but never actually transcribes text). I can’t figure out how to fix it, and I cannot reach anyone at Dragon to help. Get used to that experience if you purchase this app. Sky-high happy when it works; crushing frustration when it doesn’t.
Listed as a free app. Not free.
You have to be connected to the internet to use. It has a free trial but it is very hard to cancel your subscription.
Simple: doesn’t work. They killed the main product for Mac. Incredibly disappointing. Now I can only assume that interns are writing the iOS app. What happened Nuance? Why has thou forsaken thee decade long loyal paying customers?
For some reason Dragon Anywhere does not work with the 2018 iPad Pro unless you are using a Bluetooth connected microphone or headphone set. I wish l could use the built in microphone on the iPad. Also, it would be a time saver to be able to import batches of custom words from a text or a .doc file.
Lots of issues with the microphone and consistency. Simply misses and doesn’t recognize words. Unfortunately I will be canceling my subscription.
I tried a trial of this in 2016 and found it great. Now I’m trying it again and it’s all messed up. Every time I try to reset my password it crashes. I tried reinstalling but that didn’t work. I already had to call tech support to get initial access to it because it kept getting “cannot contact server” errors. What happened, Nuance?
This technology is so important for people today. Writers needed to put their thoughts onto paper without being too tedious. I’m so incredibly grateful that this technology exists. This app is extremely accurate I would say like 98% if you speak clearly and enunciate. The small minor mistakes are easily corrected, and you can go back and see what you meant to say because the mistake is so small. The only request that I would make about this new anywhere app is I wish they had a way to import MP3 files so those can be transcribed. Since we pay $150 a year for this app I think that we should have that feature because that’s the same amount we would be paying for the professional individual in two years time. Plus, not everyone wants to download software on their computer. I use exclusively my iPhone and iPad, so it’s imperative for me to have an app rather than software; I know that many are going this route. I really hope that Nuance gets on board with this and provides this transcribing feature. Being able to import the MP3 files that we could either email ourselves into our iPad, and save it to our Apple files or the iCloud, and then import it into the app through an import button that connects to our iCloud would be amazing. This could be a premium subscription for like $20 a month and I would totally pay it. Other than that everything else is wonderful. There are many ways to export my files; I wish though, that we were able to export them into Scrivener app. So many authors use that app. Overall though, this is the BEST APP THERE IS ON THE MARKET. Nuance seems committed to striving for perfection and future proofing its customers. Please add the transcribing feature to the app.
