Cross-device Dragon speech recognition solutions harness the Cloud
Nuance Communications Australia has announced a new portfolio 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 are, for the first time, enabling seamless synchronisation of key Dragon features across PC, Mac, iOS, and Android through the cloud, ensuring that organisations and individual professionals can remain productive wherever work takes them, by accessing a consistent, customised dictation experience on any device.
Many companies, organisations and individual professionals across industries, including legal, public safety, social services and education, face critical, yet time-consuming documentation and reporting demands that too often lead to paperwork backlog, missed reporting deadlines or noncompliance. In addition, documentation inefficiencies can force professionals to focus too much time on typing and too little time on clients and core business activities that drive growth and profitability.  
The innovative solutions in the new Dragon portfolio empower professionals and organisations to work smarter and more productively – in the office and on the go—with fast, accurate dictation and transcription, advanced customisation, seamless integration across devices, and centralised management of multi-user and enterprise deployments. As a result, professionals can complete documentation tasks more efficiently from any location with 
a personalised speech recognition experience customised to how they work and what they say. 
“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.”
