Nuance Communications' Dragon Dictation voice technology enables the voice recognition capabilities behind the new LG Voice-to-Text application for its LG Optimus Windows Phone 7 devices. Users can speak text for emails, SMS text messages, status updates for Twitter and Facebook, memos, and more, and it is currently available for free on the Microsoft Windows Phone Marketplace.

“Consumers worldwide are continuing to demand voice as a primary interface for their mobile devices. It’s simply the most natural and intuitive way to engage the applications and services we use most,” said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager of Nuance Mobile. “And because our voice capabilities are completely flexible and customizable, we can enable developers to create unique applications for any platform on any device, including the new innovative Windows Phone 7.”

The application is currently available for download for free on the Microsoft Windows Phone Marketplace for the AT&T LG Optimus 7 in U.S. English and U.S. Spanish, and for the LG Optimus 7Q shipping in Europe in U.K. English, French, Italian, German, and European Spanish.
