Nuance Communications, Inc recently made an announcement on its Finnish version of the Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search apps. These apps are for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and will now be available in the country and will support the Finnish language. This launch comes right after a successful launch in Hungary. These apps rate in the top two positions in both the Finnish as well as Hungarian App Stores. The two apps allow people globally, to speak text needed for SMSes, emails, social media updates, mobile Web searches etc. In fact, the speed of typing is claimed to be five times higher.



Internationally, Finland is the 27th country where Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search are now available. Both these apps have multilingual capabilities, so users anywhere in the world will be able to make the switch between the languages that are supported as and when they are made available.

Dragon Dictation is iOS-4 compatible and comes with a pop-up toolbar that has app icons. This allows a user to easily get into his Email, messaging system, Facebook (News - Alert) or Twitter status bars. It also gives you access to the clipboard. Also included is a very simple yet useful Auto Save function. This means that even if a call cuts through in the middle of a dictation, the partial message will be saved.

Dragon Search for iPhone (News - Alert), iPad and iPod touch is also being made available on the App Store. You can vocally input your search query and it will retrieve the information for you quickly. The Dragon Search Carousel is a feature that is found only on the Dragon Search app. It gives faster, more intelligent search results in a few seconds. These results span across multiple channels at one go. You will get results from Google, Yahoo!, Twitter, iTunes, Wikipedia and YouTube (News - Alert).

In a release, Michael Thompson (News - Alert), Senior Vice President and General Manager, Nuance Mobile said, "It's incredibly exciting that our Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search apps have launched in nearly 30 countries since December of 2009. It's crystal clear evidence that consumers all over the world love speech and want more of it. As we enter 2012, we'll continue to deliver the power of Dragon in even more languages and countries worldwide."

Both the Dragon Dictation and the Dragon Search can be downloaded for free from the Finnish Apple (News - Alert) App Store.
