Nuance Communications' Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search apps for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad have made their debut in Hungary supporting the Hungarian language.

Hungary is the 26th country where Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search have been made available by Nuance in the last year.

Dragon Dictation is iOS-4-compatible and features a pop-up toolbar with app icons that enable users to access email, SMS, Facebook or Twitter status bars, or the clipboard. Dragon Dictation also includes an Auto Save function that retains dictated text when the user is interrupted by an incoming phone call.

Dragon Search for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, also now available on the App Store, allows users to simply speak any search query to find information and answers on the mobile Web. Dragon Search features Nuance's Dragon Search Carousel, which delivers search results within seconds across multiple channels all at once. Dragon Search includes results from Google, Yahoo!, Twitter, iTunes, Wikipedia, and YouTube.

"Hungary is the 16th European country where we've delivered the Dragon Apps, driven by consumer demand for the power of mobile speech on the iPhone," said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager of Nuance Mobile. "And 2012 will be a big year for even more European expansion, with the Apps hitting more territories in more languages."

Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search are also available in the Apple App Store in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Russia, Portugal, Poland, Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, and Australia. The Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search support U.S., U.K. and Australian English, German, European and Canadian French, Italian, Americas and European Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Taiwan Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Russian, Danish, Hungarian, Polish, and Brazilian and European Portuguese.
