Dragon Dictation by Liam

Name of App:  Dragon Dictation

Cost: Free

Device/s used: iPhone

What was good about this tool?
You can speak in to this app and it will convert it into text. It has a great setting which can 'detect end-of-speech', this detects when I finish talking and then processes my speech into text. It also links with my contacts and recognise names. If they input the wrong word I can go back and change it using their suggestions or keyboard. 

I can send the text through SMS, email or copy to clipboard, in addition I can share via Facebook or Twitter.

It helps people who struggle with spellings and can help with writing assignments.

What was bad about this tool?

Some words with similar pronunciations the app may not convert the word you have asked for e.g. 'same' and 'sane'.


  1. Do you happen to know if it's available for Android?

  2. Hi Hana, I am afraid the full features are only available on Apple devices. There is a Dragon app for Android but you need to link up with a computer which has Dragon installed. I have looked to see if there are similar apps for Android, one which is similar is called 'Speech To Text', you can access it from the following link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=appinventor.ai_xenom_apps.SpeechToText

    It would be great to hear your feedback on this app.
