Nuance launch exciting new Dragon Products

This week, Nuance held a live webinar to announce the launch of an exciting portfolio of Dragon speech recognition solutions. Dragon has been helping people with their work for over 15 years and the latest additions to their range will not disappoint. These new products enable seamless synchronization of key Dragon features across PC, Mac, iOS, and Android through the cloud.

“The time-consuming nature of documentation and paperwork can place considerable productivity constraints on organisations and individual professionals alike,” said Peter Mahoney, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Dragon. “By expanding our Dragon portfolio, we are extending the benefits of robust speech recognition and transcription across the workforce. Now, organisations can better manage their speech deployments, professionals can increase their productivity in the office, and field workers can complete their documentation in a more timely and convenient manner.”

Dragon Anywhere, which will be available this autumn on iOS and Android, is a new, cloud based mobile app that offers professional dictation to users. Create and edit documents, reports and more, using customised vocabulary, voice shortcuts and auto-text commands. The app automatically synchronises auto-text commands and custom words with Dragon for Mac or Dragon Professional Individual desktop editions for seamless productivity in the office or on the go. Dragon Anywhere will be available as a subscription based application from autumn 2015.


Dragon Professional Individual is a brand new version of Dragon for PC and now includes advanced capabilities to customise words, automate repetitive tasks, and create auto-text to insert frequently used text. It makes it easy to dictate, edit and format documents, emails, forms and more, and reduces the physical strain of typing. With the integration of the new Dragon Anywhere app, professionals are able to work anywhere with seamless productivity. Dragon Professional Individual will be available from September. It will also be available as an upgrade for users with Dragon Premium or Professional, versions 12 and higher (call us on 01223 420101 to find out more).

Assistive Technology Apps


This month, iansyst launched a brand new and exciting page on – a page dedicated to providing information about the latest assistive technology apps for iOS and Android phones and tablets! Assistive technology (AT) apps are becoming increasingly popular to help those with dyslexia, visual impairment, physical difficulties and many more disabilities. Whether they are being used on their own or to accompany a full desktop version, AT apps are a great tool to help make smartphones and tablets accessible. You can view the page here.

The page currently features a variety of app categories, including text-to-speech, concept mapping and notetaking support. Some of these you can even download for free on the App Store or Google Play. Our Apps page will continuously be updated to promote the ever growing range of apps on the market, so keep an eye out for future additions to the page.

The Apps page also features iansyst’s own apps that we have developed, including our popular literacy support app, AcceleRead AcceleWrite. AcceleRead AcceleWrite is a fun and easy to use, interactive certified remedial reading scheme designed for use on an iPad. The app provides ‘virtual’ cards, each with a series of sentences which the student will read one by one until they have memorised the sentence. They then tap on the screen to input the sentence exactly as it appeared to them. The integrated text-to-speech will enable them to listen to what they have typed to check for errors. This process is repeated until the sentence is correct and they can move onto the next level. There are eight levels of increasing difficulty and your progress is tracked in your results page, showing you how many attempts were made at each level and which levels have been completed.

iansyst are happy to provide support and advice about the ever growing range of apps and which could be beneficial to you. Please get in touch if you would like more information:
