Nuance Communications Australiahas launched a new portfolio of Dragon speech recognition solutions for businesses on the move.

The portfolio includes the new Dragon Anywhere mobile app for iOS and Android, the new Dragon Professional Individual and Dragon for Mac desktop solutions, and Dragon Professional Group with the Nuance User Management Centre for group and corporate deployments.

And for the first time these new products are enabling seamless synchronisation of key Dragon features across PC, Mac, iOS, and Android through the cloud.

This ensures that organisations and individual professionals can remain productive while travelling.

Users can access customised dictation software on any device.

Nuance’s speech recognition software is ideal for exporters across a broad range of industries – especially those that spend too much time on typing and too little time on clients and core business activities that drive growth and profitability.

Professionals can complete documentation tasks more efficiently from any location.

“The time-consuming nature of documentation and paperwork can place considerable productivity constraints on organisations and individual professionals alike,” said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager of Dragon. “By expanding our Dragon portfolio, we are extending the benefits of robust speech recognition and transcription across the workforce. Now, organisations can better manage their speech deployments, professionals can increase their productivity in the office, and field workers can complete their documentation in a more timely and convenient manner.”

The new, cloud-based Dragon Anywhere mobile app enables professionals to dictate and voice-edit documents of any length directly on their iOS or Android device.

No training required

Users can create and edit complete documents, reports, client forms, and detailed notes — using customised vocabulary, voice shortcuts and frequently-used text (or auto-text) commands — while on the move.

Dragon Anywhere adapts to a user’s voice within the first few minutes of use, so no training is required.

The new Nuance User Management Centre enables enterprises to track employee usage of Dragon Professional Group, redistribute licenses based on employee use, and manage or share customisations, including custom words, commands and auto-texts, across multiple Dragon users.

Dragon Professional Group also supports Citrix virtualised environments for published applications.

For added flexibility, Dragon Anywhere can be deployed and managed across an organisation as part of a corporate license, enabling enterprise customers to empower employees with professional-grade mobile dictation for significant productivity gains in the office or on the road.

Dragon Professional Individual is an all-new version of Dragon for PC, enabling fast, easy and accurate dictation and transcription of documents, notes and reports.

Greater speed and higher accuracy

With Dragon Professional Individual it is easy to dictate, edit and format documents, spreadsheets, presentations or emails, fill out forms or simply reduce the physical stress of typing.

Integration with the new Dragon Anywhere mobile app lets professionals continue documentation work — using all of their custom words and commands — on their desktop or mobile device for seamless productivity from any location.

The new Dragon for Mac has been upgraded with the latest Nuance speech recognition technology to deliver greater speed and higher accuracy.

A redesigned user interface makes it easier to access key features, get vocabulary recommendations, and add custom words and commands.

Dragon Professional Individual will be available for download in Australia later this month, while Dragon for Mac will be 


available for download in Australia early next month.

Dragon Professional Group plus Dragon Anywhere for iOS and Android will be available in Australia later in the year.
