Special Needs App: Dragon Dictation

Special Needs App: Dragon Dictation

Dragon Dictation is a useful tool for people who have difficulty typing or translating their thoughts into written words. This voice recognition app is powered by Dragon Naturally Speaking and allows the user to speak the content of emails, text messages, notes or even status updates for social networking sites and immediately see the text appear on the screen. 

This is a handy app for children and adults who have difficulties with fine motor skills or learning disabilities like dyslexia or dysgraphia. It is not as successful for people who have difficulty speaking, stutter, or take long pauses in between words.

Dragon Dictation transcribes quickly and has remarkable accuracy. It is available for free for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
