Can I share Dragon Go! on my device?
Dragon Go! adapts to your voice and builds a unique voice profile for you, which increases speech recognition accuracy over time. For best speech recognition results, it is best that you be the primary speaker for Dragon Go! requests to ensure your voice profile continues to improve and deliver faster and even more accurate results over time. Of course – sometimes we all have to share. So if someone will be borrowing your device or using Dragon Go! for a prolonged period of time –we recommend that you reset the voice profile so Dragon Go! can create a unique voice profile for them and deliver great results the more they use the app! You can do this from Settings → Reset Enrollment → ON. Please note, doing this will reset your voice profile.
We recommend that you do not use the Reset Enrollment feature if you are only sharing the app with someone for a few searches. After all, we know that once your friends see you use Dragon Go! they will want to give it a try!
Do I really have to press "Record" and "Done" Buttons?
No. Dragon Go! has the ability to detect when you’ve stopped speaking. However in noisy environments we recommend manually stopping the recording.
Does Dragon Go! adapt to my voice over time?
Yes! Dragon Go! adapts to your voice and creates a unique voice profile to provide better speech recognition accuracy.
How can I move the cursor?
Just double tap wherever you want to place the cursor.
I am getting lots of misrecognitions. What can I do?
Try to speak clearly and in a normal voice. Make sure not to speak too quietly. In very noisy environments the recognition accuracy will suffer. As a rule of thumb if it is too noisy to have a conversation over the phone then it is probably too noisy for speech recognition to work accurately.

Why am I getting timeouts, connection errors or slow response times?
Dragon Go! streams audio data to a network server infrastructure. As with anything on the mobile Web – for the best experience you want to have a good network or WiFi connection. So if you receive this message check to make sure you have more than the minimum signal strength on your iPhone™. If in doubt, download a website via the mobile phone's browser and monitor the download speed. If it is s-l-o-w to load your connection strength needs to be a bit stronger.
