Nuance FlexT9 Now Available for Android Tablets

Nuance Communications today announced that its multimodal FlexT9 app is now officially optimized for Android tablets, including the Samsung GalaxyTab, Dell Streak 7, and the Motorola Xoom.

FlexT9 maximizes the capabilities of touchscreen smartphones and tablets, and is now fully compatible with the latest Android Honeycomb release. FlexT9 also supports six languages: U.S. and U.K. English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish.

FlexT9’s four-in-one keypad combines Dragon Dictation, T9 Trace, T9 Write, and XT9, and lets consumers change among any of FlexT9’s input modalities with a simple tap.

  • Speak: Downloaded by millions around the world, Nuance’s Dragon Dictation app quickly turns talk into text via full Dictate Anywhere capabilities on Android, regardless of whether you’re searching the web, updating a blog post or sending an email.
  • Trace: Nuance’s T9 Trace lets Android tablet users enter text with amazing speed by simply gliding their finger from one letter to another on the virtual keypad - no spacing or punctuation required.
  • Write: With T9 Write, users can simply use their finger to draw words and phrases, numbers, symbols, accented characters and more on the touch screen, and instantly see results.
  • Tap: At the core of FlexT9 is Nuance’s pervasive XT9 predictive text input technology, featuring next word prediction, word completion, Sloppy-Type ™ word error correction, spell correction, and much more across the entire input experience, including T9 Write and T9 Trace.

“FlexT9 delivers a unique-yet-powerful combination of voice and touch input that makes the tablet virtually indispensable because it’s simply easier and faster to communicate,” said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. “FlexT9’s ease of use is driven by choice – allowing consumers to decide whether they dictate an email, trace a text message, handwrite an IM or simply tap text with the industry’s leading predictive input technology.”

FlexT9 is currently available for download in the Android Market for $4.99. It supports Android OS v2.1 and higher, including select Honeycomb devices.
