Transcribing with Dragon

On-the-go with the Dragon Recorder app

The best and brightest ideas are often lost when they’re not quickly captured in writing. For this reason, thousands of Dragon customers use digital voice recorders to capture their voice on-the-go — everything from a quick note to a memo. Then they transcribe the resulting audio file into text using Dragon speech recognition on their Mac or PC

  • Freedom and flexibility. Enjoy the freedom of dictating anytime, anywhere, capturing high-quality audio files using a device you already own, such as your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch (4th gen) as a handheld recorder.
  • Easy transcription. Play back, rewind and fast forward audio recordings. Then wirelessly transfer the audio files to your Mac or PC for quick and accurate transcription.
  • Compatible with PC and Mac. Use with Dragon NaturallySpeaking (Premium, Professional and Legal Editions) and Dragon Dictate for Mac (version 2, 3 and 4) and MacSpeech Scribe.
  • Note: Dragon is not designed for use with multiple speakers or to transcribe lectures. However, the software does support the voice writing transcription technique where the transcriptionist repeats or "parrots" audio from other speakers.

  • Ensure your PC or Mac and your Android device are connected to the same WiFi network. Note: If there are firewalls in your network, the app might not communicate successfully with Dragon.
  • To set up your profile, you need to enter the following information in the app settings. You will find this information when you create a profile on your PC in Dragon NaturallySpeaking or Dragon Dictate, when you select the option Dragon Recorder Application:
  • Current Dragon Profile Name
  • Computer Name
  • IP Address
  • Computer Port
  • The Dragon Recorder application will likely not work on certain WiFi networks, due to security restrictions. Some public networks, such as those in popular restaurant and coffee-house chains, restrict device to device networking for security and, as a result, Dragon Remote Microphone will not work. Also, in some office environments the IT Security setting may also be such that it inhibits the communication between your Dragon Remote Microphone and your computer running Dragon. If this is the case, please contact your IT department.
