I know this. Several years ago my stepfather and I bought an Olympus
recorder and Dragon NS combo for my mother to record/transpose her life
story into Word. We spent time training Dragon to recognize her voice and
automatically apply corrections. The setup worked very well but regardless
of the approach, my mother was gadget-phobic. (We ended up with a
woefully-inadequate, typed story that didn't come close to sharing the
details we all wanted.)

I want to use Dragon for my own voice recordings (no SMEs), and am left
wondering if a file recorded through an Android app suffices as valid input
for Dragon.

If I understand Dragon, it will "type" your voice into Word, because it is
