Dragon Medical One and PowerMic Mobile 2021.1

Nuance is pleased to announce the availability of Dragon Medical One 2021.1 and PowerMic Mobile 2021.1.


New minimum Microsoft .NET Runtime version
Starting with version 2021.1, machines running Dragon Medical One require Microsoft .NET version 4.7.2 or higher. Learn more about upgrading .NET Framework for Dragon Medical One.

Basic Text Control allows point-of-cursor dictation in all applications
By default, when users dictate in unrecognized text fields, DMO opens the Dictation Box. DMO 2021.1 offers users a more seamless experience by allowing them to choose to bypass the Dictation Box and use Basic Text Control to dictate at the cursor. The “Use Basic Text Control” setting is located in Options under the “Text Input” tab, which replaced the “Dictation Box” tab.

Android Bluetooth support for PowerMic Mobile
PowerMic Mobile 2021.1 introduces microphone support for Bluetooth headsets and earbuds on Android devices.

Miscellaneous technical enhancements
Dragon Medical One 2021.1 contains notable bug fixes that address application disruptions listed below.

  • Press and hold settings on a PowerMic are maintained after switching devices rather than reverting to the microphone on/off setting.
  • PowerMic hotkeys defined in the configuration file are now successfully reflected for users.
