Some possible error messages:

  • Something went wrong. Try again later. - This may indicate that a connection cannot be made to the server. Make sure you are connecting to the Internet.
  • Looks like you don't have the right privileges for using our dictation service. - This indicates that the account does not have Client Access. You must have Client Access configured for your account to use this application.
  • Your account is temporarily locked. Please try again after 15 minutes or reset your password for immediate access. - Your account becomes locked when an incorrect password has been entered too many times. You can either wait 15 minutes to try to enter the correct password again, or you can tap the Forgot Password link on the sign in screen to change your password for immediate access. If you change your password be sure to sign out of ALL applications to which you sign in with an nVoq account (including Voice or your nVoq partner dictation client, Mobile Voice, and/or nVoq Administrator) and sign back in with your new password.

  1. If your account was configured to require a password reset the first time you sign in, you will automatically be taken to the change password screen. Enter your given (old) password, and then enter a new password twice, and then tap the Change Password button.


  • As you type into the New Password field, the outline of the field changes from red to green once you have entered a strong password. The words "Very weak", "Medium", or "Strong" also appear below the field to let you know if you're getting close to an acceptable password (which is Strong).
  • As you type into the Confirm New Password field, the outline of the field changes from red to green once you have entered a password matching the one you entered in the New Password field.
  • Regardless of the setting at your division level organization, when your password is changed in the app it MUST be "strong," meaning that it has to include each of the following: an uppercase letter, a lowercase letter, a number, and a symbol. If you want your password to conform to the setting at your division level organization (which may be less strict), log in to the dictation client first and THEN sign in to the Wireless Microphone.

  1. A message may appear letting you know that we are required to ask for your permission to track your usage in the Wireless Microphone app. Click the Continue button, then tap Allow to allow nVoq to track your usage activity so that we can provide you with better support.
    nVoq only tracks your usage for support and application improvement, so we recommend that you allow this. If you do not want to allow this you can tap Ask App Not to Track.
    You will NOT see this message if the "Allow Apps to Request to Track" setting is disabled under your device Settings > Privacy.

  3. Then the iOS operating system will ask you to confirm that the Wireless Mic should be allowed to access the microphone on your device. Tap OK.

  4. If you are NOT already logged in to a dictation client, a message at the bottom of the screen will say, "Please sign in to a voice client and then tap here". 
    If you haven't already done so, before you can sign in to an nVoq dictation client you will also need to configure the dictation client to use the wireless microphone as the recording device. See Setup in nVoq Voice

    • If you be using the Wireless Mic for dictation, log in to a voice client on your computer, and then tap the message.

  1. Once you are logged in to a dictation client, the app will show some tips to help you get started with dictation and voice shortcuts. Tap the screen to advance through the tips. You must be logged in to a voice client to see this. This will only appear when you log in the first time.
