Winscribe’s Digital Dictation for iPhone App Gains New User Interface and Barcode Technology

The worldwide market leader in digital dictation solutions, Winscribe, has released the latest version of its iOS application today which introduces Winscribe’s simplified and ergonomically improved user interface (UI) philosophy to all iOS devices including the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.


The facelift, which is based on the highly popular Winscribe for Android application, has been developed based on extensive user testing. The new UI has been found to minimize user fatigue, while expediting the dictation process and resulting in higher user acceptance and uptake.

Winscribe Digital Dictation for iPhone streamlines and simplifies the dictation process and speeds up work turnaround with full recording capabilities, secure voice and data transmission, speech recognition integration and online/offline functionality.

The new iPhone application also supports barcode scanning functionality to accelerate workflow automation. In a law firm, this means that lawyers may use their iPhone to scan barcodes on case notes from hardcopy files or on their computer screen, to associate a dictation with a specific case or client. In a medical environment, a doctor may do the same from a patient’s wristband, a screen in their hospital information system, or from a patient file. Both can create recordings with a single tap on their iPhone’s touchscreen and send recordings to a transcriptionist or transcriptionist pool for immediate processing.

The iPhone app also supports Winscribe Dictation workflow technology such as the pre-populating of document templates with client information as well as further automation with the help of speech recognition technology. Barcode Technology can also be used to setup the device with one click.

Greg Allen, CTO of Winscribe, explains:

“Mobile technology is a big part of most people’s lives nowadays. Professionals are increasingly becoming used to working remotely and demand solutions that will allow them access to all their relevant information and enable them to stay productive while moving around, both within their workplace as well as offsite. Winscribe Dictation for iPhone provides this freedom, and at the same time has been developed to make use of the advanced workflow components of Winscribe Dictation which ensures Winscribe users will get their work done faster, and their organization will receive better efficiencies in the process.”

Both Winscribe iOS applications, Winscribe for iPhone and medical specific Winscribe MD, continue to experience rapid growth in major markets, including the US, UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, amongst others. A free trial version of both applications is available from the app store.
