About this app

The most accurate professional-grade dictation service available on the market. Create templates, add custom words, and instantly dictate your documents – Dragon Anywhere will automatically adapt to how you speak. Download your one-week FREE TRIAL now! Trial converts to a monthly ($14.99) or annual ($149.99) subscription.

Paperwork doesn’t end when you’re away from your desk. Dragon Anywhere speech to text is the only mobile dictation app that enables continuous dictation of documents, with no length or time limits. This means, you can dictate documents of any length, edit, format, and share them directly from your mobile device to boost productivity anywhere—whether visiting clients, a job site or at your local coffee shop.

Mobile employees are often burdened with heavier documentation demands in the workplace—client intake forms, reports and more. Dragon Anywhere speech to text makes it easy to create detailed and accurate documents, fill out reports and forms, or complete other paperwork— all by voice, directly on your smartphone and tablet, and all on-the-go. And because you can also synchronize your personal customizations with Dragon Professional for the desktop, transcription work started in the field or out on the road can easily be completed back at your home or office.


• Fast & accurate dictation means you can dictate immediately with 99% speech recognition accuracy right out of the gate, with no training required.

• No time or length limits for our voice to text means you can dictate as long as you want to complete documents of any length – from a business report to an entire book!

• Need to fill out forms from the road? Easily create professional form-based templates using Dragon Anywhere’s auto-texts feature and create and fill out forms, such as client in-take forms, and even navigate field to field by voice commands.

• Powerful customizations, like the ability to add words specific to your industry, means even more accurate transcription as you dictate documents. Or create simple voice commands to short-cut repetitive steps, like inserting an email signature or standard clauses into documents.

• Robust voice formatting and editing in our speech to text solution lets you select words and sentences for editing, correction, and deletion, apply common formatting like underline and bold, or voice navigate through fields of a report template.

• Synchronize with supported Dragon desktop speech to text solutions, so transcription work started on the road or in the field can be completed back at the desktop for seamless document workflows.

Doesn't seem to allow dictation directly into other applications, and there is no "dictation pad" function as in desktop version. I use these features frequently on dragon desktop. Also, for mobile would be nice to be able to "start dictation" with voice command. The microphone turns off without warning after some period of time and requires tapping on the screen - not always convenient for a mobile app. As in the desktop version - the quality and accuracy of dictation is extraordinary. The user interface ... not so much.

This is a great app for transcription. A simple 3 minute video explains the bulk of voice commands. Transcription level is near flawless. The only reason I didn't give a higher rating is the record button turns itself off after a minute in silence. I have to keep turning it on to record. I'd like to be able to adjust settings on the timing of the record button. I plan to buy the desktop and get the year's free anywhere app, because it's a hefty monthly fee.

After 20 seconds of silence, the microphone turns off automatically to save battery life and to prevent inadvertent transcription. However, there is an option in Settings to alert you with a beep whenever the microphone is turned off. Please contact Dragon Anywhere Technical Support (free for subscribers) at 770-702-6014 for further inquiries.

I purchased Dragon Anywhere as soon as it was available. I found it a little clunky compared with Dragon Professional, which I have used for many years. In particular, I could not sync my phone with my Dragon Professional instance. Sometime during the pandemic my subscription came due and I chose not to renew. When the subscription ended, to my surprise, all of the notes that I had dictated became unavailable. More recently, I have better finances and wanted to renew the subscription -FAIL. Dragon support tells me that since my subscription was cancelled, I have to use a different email address to create an entirely new account. There is no way to restart a subscription.
