Dictate Text Anytime & Anywhere with Dragon Recorder

Posted by Julie L. on Sat, Jan 28, 2012

When I arrived at his Finger Lakes Health office, Dr. Gomez already had the Dragon Recorder application loaded on his iPhone.  He did a few short dictations, plugged the phone into his laptop and watched as the .wav files automatically appeared in iTunes.  I then instructed him how utilize the Transcribe option within Dragon Medical and his voice profile.  Simple.  Speaking instead of typing is so easy!
