The Dragon Dictation- a useful iPhone App for a PR Professional

Dragon-Dictation
Dragon Dictation is an easy-to-use voice recognition application powered by Dragon®
This nifty little application allows you to easily speak into it and instantly see your text or email messages. It is much faster than typing out a long winded message or e mail.
You can train it to recognise your voice so that it avoids making silly mistakes. Use it to create a blog post and give your fingers a rest. It is also perfect for wording a complicated email when out of the office or during a long commute.
Other uses,
  • You could use the app at a conference instead of scribbling notes.
  • Press days- Interviewing
Make sure you check over the text for grammar and punctuation errors. You may also wish to add in capitalisation of letters.
I rewrote the first paragraph of this blog post below using the Dragon Dictation app.
Dragon dictation is an easy to use voice recognition application powered by Dragon. This nifty little application allows you to easily speak and instantly see your text or e-mail messages in fact it’s up to 5 times faster than typing on the keyboard
My first attempt at using this little device has resulted in a near enough word for word paragraph, except for the odd one, highlighted in red. It also doesn’t allow spaces, full stops or capitalisation – which would all need to be put in manually.
Still quite a handy addition to the  PR toolbox I would say!!

    I agree – absolutely brilliant App – and even better on the iPad (maybe that’s because I’m a bit older and it has a bigger screen!). But it’s a brilliant way to capture your thoughts for a press release or a pitch when you’re out on the road or even sat at your desk! I’ve found it works best using the headset/microphone and it’s far far better than the old PC based version.

    Every PR should have it on their iPhone or iPad!
