Transcribing with Dragon

It’s easy to transcribe your recorded speech into text using Dragon. Simply establish a user profile for a digital voice recorder, and then speak your notes or memos and have Dragon automatically transcribe your recorded voice when you connect to your PC or Mac.

With the all‑new Dragon Professional Individual, v15, Dragon Legal Individual, v15 you can even transcribe another single speaker’s voice from pre‑recorded audio files or from podcasts—without having the speaker present to read a passage for training. It’s fast, simple and accurate.

Dragon is not designed for use with multiple speakers or to transcribe lectures. The software does, however, support the voice writing transcription technique, where the transcriptionist repeats or "parrots" audio from other speakers.

Dragon transcription means business

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

  • Streamline transcription. Dragon’s Auto‑Transcribe Folder Agent (ATFA) manages the flow of transcribed text and synchronized audio of digital voice recordings to streamline third-party review and correction. Just drag and drop any recorded audio files into the ATFA and they’ll be automatically transcribed into text.
  • Gain efficiencies. Support staff can review a draft of a transcribed document instead of typing the whole document from scratch for faster, more efficient turnaround.
  • Increase productivity. Use a digital voice recorder to capture memos and notes away from your desk or out in the field for later transcription using Dragon.
