Nuance (News - Alert) Communications, Inc. recently announced their continuing efforts at European expansion into Portugal with their Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search apps. These applications for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad will support the European Portuguese language. The two applications have rapidly gathered worldwide acceptance with the number of downloads running into millions. They enable quick reading and speech input for SMS, emails, updates on social media as well as mobile Web searches.
Portugal is now the 22nd country where Nuance has made Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search available since the last year. It can now be had in 19 languages across the continents of North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. World over, users can easily switch between all languages thanks to the Apps’ multilingual abilities.
Dragon Dictation comes with iOS-4 compatibility. It has a pop-up toolbar with quick access icons for email, message, Facebook (News - Alert) or Twitter status bars etc. A convenient feature is the Auto-Save that will prevent any text being dictated from getting deleted when the user is interrupted by a phone call.
What this application enables the user to do is input a search query by voice and instantly find the information or answers he is looking for. The Dragon Search is the only application that has Nuance’s special and innovative Dragon Search Carousel. This gives the user search results in seconds across a range of channels. Dragon Search can get your results from Google or Yahoo!, Twitter (News - Alert), iTunes, Wikipedia as well as YouTube.
In a release Michael Thompson, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Nuance Mobile, says, “22 countries and 19 languages later, Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search continue their rapid global expansion with this latest launch in Portugal. What is even more exciting is the Apps’ continued success in each and every region they are introduced, consistently hitting the #1 and #2 spots in free business apps in nearly every App Store.”
Both these applications are currently available for free download at the Portuguese Apple (News - Alert) App Store. Nuance is a globally recognized name providing voice and language based solutions to consumers worldwide. Millions of individual consumers and businesses have benefitted from these applications.
