  • Ensure your PC or Mac and Android device are connected to the same WiFi network. Note: if there are firewalls in your network, the app might not communicate successfully with Dragon.
  • In the settings of the app, to set up the profile you will need the following (this information is presented to you when you create a profile selecting the Dragon Remote Microphone in Dragon NaturallySpeaking and Dragon Dictate):
  • Current Dragon Profile Name
  • Computer Name
  • IP Address
  • Computer Port
  • The Dragon Remote Microphone application will likely not work on certain WiFi networks, due to security restrictions. Some public networks such as those in popular restaurant and coffee house chains restrict device to device networking for security, and the Dragon Remote Microphone will not work there. Also, in some office environments, the IT Security setting may also be such that it inhibits the communication between your Dragon Remote Microphone and your computer running Dragon. You should contact your IT department if this is the case.
