Some of their most popular programs are Dragon Naturally Speaking and Dragon Professional Individual, that allow users to communicate with their operating systems by means of voice commands.

Dictation app for iPhone
So, with the seal of quality of this company, we can now make use of Dragon Dictation that, as you've probably gathered from its name, it's an application that offers us the possibility to dictate text to our iPhone that can be later turned into a message to be shared on different apps.
From sending an email to updating your Facebook Status.
It's very useful because it helps us to spare using the keypad of our iPhone or iPad. You only have to press the button and talk into your device. Thanks to the app's advanced voice recognition system, we can carry out different actions such as updating our Facebook Status, tweeting, creating reminders or sending emails.
These are its main features:
- Speech to text conversion that can be shared with any application by means of the clipboard: SMS, WhatsApp, Facebook, Telegram, text notes...
- Editing functions with lists of suggested words.
- Voice commands to correct words.
The app can be downloaded for free but you'll need an Internet connection, either a 3G or 4G data network or a WiFi connection. It's available for iOS devices (including iPod touch) but there doesn't seem to be an APK for Android. However, these users can make use of other Nuance apps such as Dragon Remote Microphone, capable of communicating remotely with a PC or Mac.
