Taking notes is now quick and easy.

Dragon Notes is the quick and fun notes app fully optimized for Microsoft Windows 8 devices that lets you capture, organize and share notes, lists and ideas - just by speaking. Whether you are a hyper-organized worker, want to stay on top of life's daily to-dos, or are a student looking to organize your thoughts, Dragon Notes gives you a simple way to capture notes and ideas in the office, at home or on-the-go - keeping all those sticky notes and paper lists at bay for a more organized digital lifestyle.

Dragon Notes takes full advantage of the Windows 8 touchscreen and tile interface, and is perfect for Windows 8 tablets. If you have a Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC, good news – you can use Dragon Notes on your PC too.

Dictate into Dragon Notes using your device's internal microphone. For optimal dictation accuracy, we highly recommend using an external USB microphone.

Product Details

Dictate a note (up to 30 seconds) then have your words automatically appear in a date/time stamped note in the app – auto-saved so you’ll never lose an important idea or thought. But that’s not all! You have several options once you have completed your note:

  • Post to Facebook: Dragon Notes wants you to stay connected. Using your voice, you can create a note, then say “Post to Facebook” and Dragon Notes will automatically update your status with the content of your note.


  • Share on Twitter: Sending a tweet is easy with Dragon Notes. Dictate your note then tell Dragon “Share on Twitter” or “Post to Twitter” and it will send your tweet immediately.


  • Send an email: Express important thoughts when they first come to mind. Create a new note, then say “Send an email” or “send via email” and your text will automatically appear in the message body of your default email program.


  • Search the Web: Use Dragon Notes for quick web searches. Dictate your search into a note and say “Search the Web” and Dragon Notes will launch your default web browser and search engine, returning results quickly and easily – and saving that search term as a note so you can keep track of what you’ve already researched.

Once created, you can edit your note with the keyboard at any time. If you don’t want to use voice commands, or you miss the 15-second window of time where Dragon Notes is waiting for your command after completing a note, no worries: your auto saved notes are able to be shared, emailed, or deleted, or you can search the web from Dragon Note’s in-app menu.

It's easy to use – just click the Dragon flame and speak. That’s all it takes to get started using Dragon Notes.


It's not a problem if you speak more than one language. Purchase the US English app and add on a language pack - available in French and Latin American Spanish - for half the price.
