Dragon Dictation App Breakdown
Ease of Use
The audio recording automatically stops after users stop speaking or after a minute. After the recording, a transcription of the spoken material appears in “Notes.”
From there, edits can be made. Once a transcription has been made, the user can make edits to the text by pressing on specific words and either typing the correct word or re-recording audio by pressing the record button at the top of the screen.
Users can continue to dictate new material to the same note, create a new note (using the “+” icon), delete the last dictation or the entire note (using the trashcan icon), and/or share their note via email, Facebook, or Twitter (using the arrow icon).
