Hello Dragon Fans! Questions have been rolling in about whether you need to press the “Record” button before you start dictating and the “Done” button when you have stopped when using Dragon Dictation. So here’s the answer:

We’ve found that users get the best experience when they explicitly start and stop the recording. Often times it is simply a matter of giving yourself some time to get in the habit of executing the Record→Speak→Done sequence. But if you would prefer not to take this approach, you can also let Dragon Dictation sense the end of your speech. To enable this within the App, go into the Settings (the wheel icon on the bottom right corner of the Tap and Dictate screen) and turn on the “Detect End-of-speech” feature. This will help detect when you are done speaking.


If you have more questions or comments about any of our Dragon Apps, drop us a note here or on our NuanceMobileLife Facebook page  and let us know what you think—we look forward to hearing from you!

See you next week!
