Dragon Dictation

Works with:  iPad, iPhone, iPod
Price:  $Free

Grades:  Junior (Gr. 4 - 6), Intermediate (Gr. 7-10), Senior (Gr. 11 - 12)
Description:  The Dragon Dictation app allows students access to Dragon's Voice to Text technology.  The technology seems to work fairly well "right out of the box" at least with students who can speak clearly.  Unlike Dragon Dictation running on a computer, students don't need to train the app, but this means that it may not be as accurate.  This app is a great piece of assistive technology for students who have difficulty with writing tasks.
Initial usefulness rating: 2
