  • Buggy but great when it works

    Pros: amazing speech recognition software. Great engineering achievement. Better than Siri with Notes IMHO Cons, Minor: requires entry of a password each time one uses it. Not a very user friendly UI if one just wants to write a quick note on the go. Cons, Major: huge bug (see multiple posts by others) that locks out the microphone once one has purchased the software! Took a month for them after recognition to roll out a fix. Dealing with tech support is like one of the old SNL skits. Hugely time consuming. The rep was very pleasant but low level, so I had to literally spend hours to get them to recognize and log the bug. Be careful if you buy this software and need to depend upon it and don’t have a lot of free time to troubleshoot.
  • It keeps glitching and freezing

    By Dana writes books
    When it works, it’s fine. Just like the Dragon naturally speaking that I had on my computer. However, I have never worked with such a glitchy, buggy, program in my life. It is incredibly unreliable and crashes all the time.
  • Poor tech support

    By mtwnsi
    The product started out great, but crashed shortly after loading. Unresponsive tech support. Very disappointing. Cannot recommend for iPhone use. mehta Updated review: A new App release solved the problem and the software is back working the way it should. I am once again pleased with the product. It would have been much better customer service if the developer and tech support had simply said “we have a problem and are working on a new release which should resolve the issue.” Tech updates, rather than frustrated customer calls, would have led to a much more satisfactory outcome.
  • Do NOT order from them!

    By 12cgh45
    They are a horrible, horrible and unethical company. I ordered a one year subscription with them through Apple Pay, and was charged $141. When I went to use the program, it said my subscription had expired, even though the App’s Settings said my subscription was good for the year. Two weeks and 9 phone calls later, I have only gotten the complete run around from rude and arrogant phone reps, and I am still locked out. No apologies, no solution to my problem, and no follow up. I wound up having to cancel my subscription through Apple Pay. Do not give your business to this most dishonest and uncaring organization.
  • One star until I can manage to login

    By Gian Carlo 111
    I’m giving this app one star until I can actually login. The system tells me that my password is incorrect. No problem, I’ll just reset my password. The issue, however, is that I am not receiving the email to reset my password. I am 100% sure it is the email I used to purchase the product. For $300 I feel like I’ve purchased a product that shouldn’t be in version 15 as products that are this deep into version numbers don’t have the deep issues the dragon speech comes with. So far I feel like a good value for this product is $150 not $300. This issue of not being able to log into dragon anywhere is just the cherry on the top
  • Free Trial Never Activated

    By Caribbean Jake
    I was excited to give this a week trial with my work related needs. Never happened. Could not get the account activated. Apple subscription was legit and everything on Apple’s side was good. Sent everything to Dragon. Went back and forth between user friendly apple support to cold and clunky Dragon support. They and their automated system “tried” to help, but did not make it happen before the week trial was up.
  • Messed up

    By lake4sure
    The free trial worked great- then I paid for it and it wouldnt release the microphone. Paid for justanswer to send me back to nuance. Day 2 with tech support. Lots of time lost.
  • Do not subscribe within the App!

    By semlohjen
    Do not subscribe within the app, do not run the trial at Nuance and then subscribe within the app—Naunce simply can not make the subscription run properly. Repeated issues with microphone access cut off as ‘Subscription expired’. Basic Nuance tech support appears to be working from a script and unable to handle anything that is not very basic. They left my subscription running while unable to provide an update—or ETA on an update— to fix the ‘subscription expired’ error. When it works the app is awesome, too bad I had to cancel due to the tech issues.
  • Annoyed

    By dict8rh8r
    Seemed like a good deal. Subscribed after initial test period, but it would no longer work saying that the subscription expired even though I am paying.
  • IPad Pro + Philips speechmike premium Dictaphone (via USB-C)

    By Ssb012
    Updated (May 23, 2020) – Bug: text defaults to an unacceptably small font size when copy-pasting dictated text into the Apple Mail app. This behavior persists despite changing the font size settings in Dragon. Same behavior observed on iPhone and iPad (using iOS 13.5). In contrast, font size is (near) normal when emailing dictated text (using the "email document" command) from within the Dragon app. Please explore/fix. Updated (May 15, 2020): (1) Still no keyboard shortcuts to active/toggle microphone or navigate to next/previous field; sorely needed for iPad user, especially those with Apple’s magic keyboard for iPad. This can’t be that hard to add and would increase productivity quite a bit. (2) Need to increase number of editing commands to create better parity with desktop app; in particular, ‘delete last X words’ where X= 2, 3, 4, 5. “Resume with” command does not consistently work (for me). (3) Adding support for a dictaphone would make this a productivity powerhouse when paired with the iPadPro. SpeechMike Pro in “keyboard” mode still works but clearly there is ample opportunity here for better integration and large jump in productivity, especially for long-form dictation. Given Nuance makes their own dictaphone they could either support that or better just add keyboard shortcuts that could then be easily mapped to something like the Philips device. (4) Please consider porting this to MacOS. I would like to resume work started in Anywhere on the Mac. It would also create more value for the $ for the user. *** 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!
