DotDr Streamlining voice and improving automated medical learning transcriptions

Hello DotDr community,

DotDr students using voice save time!

Happy anniversary! It's been a fantastic year of growth and learning with all of you. From March to November 2023, we have seen over 600 students using DotDr, and over 8,000 submissions were received. As we celebrate one year of voice, we're excited to share some significant updates to DotDr VOICE that we've been diligently working on based on your valuable feedback. From January 2024, we will be using the new DotDr App which offers some fantastic features for you to try!


1. โœ… Check-in only: When all you need to do is log your attendance, simply select the correct Rotation/ Session then click on the "Check-in only. Simple. 

2. ๐Ÿ“ Typing Option: We understand that sometimes it's more convenient to type than speak. That's why DotDr now offers a typing option. Check-in as normal (no need to record anything). Access your submission from Results and add details by editing any of the fields. 

3. ๐Ÿ“ Exact Location: DotDr will find and assign the correct location whether at uni or hospital/clinic, based on GPS coordinates. Your attendance record digital rotation logbook will reflect this.  

4. ๐Ÿ‘‹ Remain Signed-In: Tired of repeatedly signing in? DotDr values the security of your information! You no longer need to sign in to log attendance or drop a voicenote. However, email verification is required to access your Results. 

5. ๐Ÿ“„ Transcript: Want to view your voice note transcript to ensure all necessary information is included? Did you forget to mention something and need to add it later? DotDr has been testing the latest AI transcription services behind the scenes and is thrilled to share this feature with you! Simply go to and navigate to Results

6. โœ๏ธ Clinician signature: when you need a clinician to sign-off on an activity, tick the box and hand your phone to the clinician to sign directly in the app.

7. ๐Ÿ’ญSelf reflection: take a few seconds to add a self-reflection voicenote that will be transcribed and available for you to view and edit from Results. Simply select "I want to talk about something else". 

9. ๐Ÿ’ฏ WBA: do you need to perform a self assessment or ask someone else to assess you? Go to Menu and select WBA. Then choose the assessment type e.g. mini-CEX from the menu and follow the prompts.  

8. โฐ Reminders: Your suggestions for reminders have been heard! DotDr is exploring the options. 

We appreciate your ongoing support and suggestions. DotDr is committed to providing you with the best tools for your medical learning journey. Here's to another year of growth, learning, and success together!

Best regards,

The DotDr Team
