Dragon Dictation

Dragon Dictation
The Dragon Dictation app (for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) strips away many of the navigational commands and advanced features of its full-fledged brethren, focusing instead on one, single service: translating dictation to text. Reviewers say Dragon Dictation does that thing well, providing extremely fast and accurate dictation translation. The app's simple interface also garners unanimous praise, but there a few downsides to the app. Users won't be able to use Dragon Dictation if they don't have a working Internet connection, which critics consider a potential major flaw. Long-winded users may also be disappointed that they can only dictate for about half a minute at a time before filling the app's buffer. Other voice control apps, such as Vlingo, are available, but none of them ranks as highly as Dragon Dictation does with critics and users alike.ProsHighly accurate, Speech recognition improves over time, Simple, easy-to-use interface ConsInternet connection required, 30-second buffer slows down dictation, No verbal corrections
