Nuance Communications Australia has announced a new suite of Dragon speech recognition solutions, including 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 Center for group and corporate deployments. These new products enable seamless synchronisation of key Dragon features across PC, Mac, iOS and Android through the cloud.
The new, cloud-based Dragon Anywhere mobile app lets you dictate and voice-edit documents of any length directly on their iOS or Android device. Dragon Anywhere provides professional-grade dictation that lets users create and edit complete documents, reports, client forms and detailed notes – using customised vocabulary, voice shortcuts and frequently-used text (or auto-text) commands – to keep up with documentation demands in the field. Dragon Anywhere automatically synchronises custom words and auto-texts with Dragon for Mac or Dragon Professional Individual desktop editions to enable seamless productivity in the office or on the go. And Dragon Anywhere adapts to a user’s voice within the first few minutes of use, so there is no training required.
Dragon Anywhere for mobile employees is the Nuance User Management Center for centralised administration, usage tracking and licence management, and training and project management services.
The new Nuance User Management Centre enables enterprises to track employee usage of Dragon Professional Group, redistribute licences 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.
Dragon Professional Individual is a new version of Dragon for PC, enabling fast, easy and accurate dictation and transcription of documents, notes and reports with the ability to customise words, automate repetitive tasks, and create auto-texts to insert frequently-used text – all by voice.
The new Dragon for Mac brings powerful, professional-grade speech recognition to Mac users. Upgraded with the latest Nuance speech recognition technology, it delivers greater speed and higher accuracy than previous Mac versions. The redesigned user interface makes it easier to access key features, get vocabulary recommendations, and add custom words and commands.
The ability to synchronise Dragon for Mac with the new Dragon Anywhere mobile app lets professionals continue working on documents at the office or on the road to be more productive anywhere.
