Nuance Communications (News - Alert) has launched a free application on the Apple iOS app store called as Dragon Recorder app.

This application enables Dragon customers to use an iPhone (News - Alert), iPad or iPod touch as a voice recorder to capture their own voice, and transcribe their recordings into any application on the Mac or PC with Dragon speech recognition.

Dragon users with an iOS device can now easily transcribe their recordings to quickly create notes, meeting minutes and more with Dragon speech recognition.

Digital voice recorders are already popular and several Dragon customers use these devices to capture their thoughts on the go, and then transcribe these dictations using Dragon speech recognition.

But a large number of Nuance's current Dragon customers also expressed their wish to use their smartphones for this purpose. The company has addressed this demand by introducing the new Dragon Recorder app.

Thanks to this release, consumers can use their existing iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to dictate high-quality recordings. These recordings can then be transferred via iTunes or a wireless network to their Mac or PC for an accurate transcription with Dragon speech recognition.

"We've really focused on delivering more flexibility in Dragon, so that our customers can use Dragon the way that they work and live," said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager, Dragon, Nuance.

"Most recently with the introduction of our Dragon Remote Mic app, we added the ability to use the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as a wireless mic with Dragon. Now, the Dragon Recorder app takes it a step further by allowing more of our customers to take advantage of remote on-the-go dictation with a device that they are already carrying so that they can capture their creative ideas and thoughts quickly and accurately, no matter where they are."
