Express Dictate is a voice recording app for iOS. You dictate directly on your device using the controls. When done, tap send and the dictation will be compressed and sent to your typist by email automatically. For ease of use, operation of the record and playback features is designed to closely mimic that of old style dictation recorders. You can also playback, rewind, insert or overwrite as required using the keys on the front. This dictation voice recorder is designed to have all the features you need as easy to use as possible and reliable for day-to-day operation. By installing Express Dictate you will quickly find it will replace your old dictaphone, and by using the internet to send dictations, will also improve the turnaround on typing. Express Dictate Features: - Record and playback dictation using the controls on the device. - Editing, inserting and overwriting. You can select between record overwrite, record insert and record end modes. - Optional voice activated recording. When selected Express Dictate only records while you are speaking. - Automatic compression of audio files to reduce upload times and storage requirements. - Sends recording in compressed wave (wav) or dictation (dct) file formats. - Files can be sent via FTP, email, and iTunes. All files sent by Express Dictate can be transcribed by the free foot pedal controlled transcriber software Express Scribe Transcription Player Software. *Please backup ALL dictations before upgrading from a previous version*



  • Worst app.

    By Kels15897439
    Waste of valuable work time trying to get this app to send an email. It's the worst app ever. Major bugs. Needs a lot of work. Hope there are better alternatives out there.
  • Do not update to this version if you have any stored recordings

    By Mikegr123
    This version has a major bug and will corrupt all stored recordings if you try to play them back. It appears to erase every recording made on previous versions if you try to play them back in your iOS devise. We lost multiple recordings with this upgrade. Tried to call the company, but unless you pay them extra money they will not talk to you. This is a major bug problem.
  • Needs update!!!

    By Chicago Consulting
    This app has been very glitchy since recent iOS update. App stops recording randomly on its own and has resulted in loss of dictations when the user is not aware that the app has suddenly stopped recording. This app needs to be updated asap or it is just not functional. I sent a bug report, and removed and reinstalled the app but the problem keeps happening. Help!
  • Needs update. Wasted money.

    By ThePro_PR
    I was using their Expess Delegate software and because of the description I thoughts I could send directly to it, but you can't. I really hope it gets updated with this feature soon. Also it needs to be update for newer devices (iPhone 6 Plus) and a more modern/clean look (it looks terrible on my iPhone 6 Plus).
  • "Ok" update from free original

    By djeeer
    Issues: 1) Please make the buttons bigger. I am getting used to the little buttons now though. 2) Please eliminate the 1-2 second pause after I push the record button (this is the most annoying thing and was not an issue with the original free version). Otherwise, this is a very good app and I use it every day. I am only critical because it is so valuable to me.
  • Cutting files

    By Nch user
    After updating from pocket dictate to the express dictate paid version I am having serious problems when sending dictations via FTP or email. When I send files they are cut, the received files are either missing the beginning or the end of the audio file. I have tried numerous different settings and I am not able to consistently receive dictations in their entirety. For example I have recorded files in the app that are 5 minutes long which I can play and hear the entire dictation, however after sending, the recipient will receive a shorter file with random parts missing. The frustrating part is it just seems to be random sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn't. The old app worked just fine, with no issues. If anyone knows how to resolve this please help, I have called and emailed NCH support numerous times, after spending thousands of dollars on their express delegate suite this is the customer service I get. The only reason I'm giving 1 star is because there is no option for 0! Stay away from this company.
  • Missing Necessary Feature

    By Adam D Hill
    The previous program had an auto numbering feature for consecutive dictations. Tapping new would advance the dictation name by 1 after the manner "Dictation 1, Dictation 2, Dictation 3..." Please bring this back as it is a vital feature.
