Dragon transcription solutions

Powerful transcription that's ready for work

If you’re a mobile professional—or anyone on the go—who relies on a digital voice recorder or smartphone to capture notes and memos, use Dragon’s robust transcription features to turn your recordings into text quickly, easily and accurately. Dragon can even transcribe another single speaker’s voice from pre-recorded audio files or from podcasts to maximize flexibility and drive productivity.

Features and benefits

Dragon transcription means business

There’s no need to transcribe from scratch or rely on an outside service. Thousands of businesses use Dragon as a transcription solution to increase productivity and reduce transcription costs. Dragon’s powerful transcription capabilities turn single-speaker recorded audio files into transcribed documents—instantly and accurately.


Transcribing with Dragon

The fast, simple and accurate way to turn voice files into text using Dragon. Learn how.

Since Dragon is speaker-dependent software, it’s not designed for use with multiple speakers. Thousands of customers still successfully use Dragon to transcribe interviews or lectures using a basic technique called "voice writing" or "parroting."

  • Record a lecture using a digital recorder or mobile device and download the audio file to your PC or Mac.
  • Activate your Dragon microphone, listen to the recording through your Dragon headset and repeat the recorded text as you hear it.
  • Speaking the text aloud in your own voice enables Dragon to accurately transcribe the audio using the Dragon profile tuned to your voice.
  • Dragon turns your voice into text as quickly as you can speak the words, so there’s no need to constantly rewind the audio while you try to type out the corresponding text.
