Tips & Tricks
Are there any videos available that show Dragon Mobile Assistant in action?
Indeed. There are videos available on the Dragon Overview page on this site. Alternatively, you can view Dragon videos on the Nuance Mobile Channel on YouTube here: DragonMobileApps
Do I have to touch the microphone when I’m done speaking?
No. Dragon Mobile Assistant has the ability to detect when you’ve stopped speaking. However, in noisy environments we recommend manually stopping the recording
Does Dragon Mobile Assistant adapt to my voice over time?
Yes! Dragon Mobile Assistant adapts to your voice and creates a unique voice profile to provide better speech recognition accuracy.
I am getting lots of misrecognitions. What can I do?
Try to speak clearly and in a normal voice into the microphone (typically on the bottom of your phone). 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.
The system doesn't hear me correctly. What should I do?

Why am I getting timeouts, connection errors or slow response times?
Dragon Mobile Assistant 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 mobile-network or WiFi connection. So if you receive this message check to make sure you have more than the minimum signal strength on your phone. 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.
