Winscribe today released the latest version of its iOS application, introducing a simplified and ergonomically improved user interface (UI) compatible with all iOS devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

The facelift, based on the 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 offers 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, for example, lawyers could use their iPhone to scan barcodes on case notes from hard copy 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 the 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 for immediate processing.

The iPhone app also supports Winscribe Dictation workflow technology, such as the pre-populating of document templates with client information.

"Mobile technology is a big part of most people's lives nowadays," says Greg Allan, CTO of Winscribe. "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."
