You can dictate to nVoq.Voice in a different location, you would just need to be signed in to Voice with the same username and password that you used to sign in on the Wireless Microphone app. For example, you can run Voice on your computer at your office, then connect to it on the Wireless Mic app from home, and your dictation transcripts will appear on your office computer.
