Nuance Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search Apps Now Available in Russia

Nuance Communications today announced that its Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search apps for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad have made their debut in Russia, supporting the Russian language.

Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search have experienced rapid adoption and expansion across Europe this last year, with global downloads in the tens of millions as they empower people to quickly and easily speak text for SMS messages, email, social media updates, mobile Web searches and more. Russia is the 21st country where Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search have been made available by Nuance in the last year, with both apps available in 18 languages across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. And because the Apps feature multilingual capabilities, people all over the world can switch between supported languages as they become available.

Dragon Dictation is iOS-4 compatible and features a pop-up toolbar with app icons for access to 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 speak any search query to find information and answers on the mobile Web. Dragon Search is the only app to feature Nuance's  Dragon Search Carousel, which delivers search results within seconds across multiple channels all at once. In fact, Dragon Search has been customized for Russian users to include results from Yandex, a popular local Russian search engine, along with Google or Yahoo!, iTunes, Wikipedia and YouTube.

"Nuance's mobile voice capabilities have long been experienced by Russian consumers via in-car and navigation systems, so we're very excited that they can now experience the power of Dragon from anywhere on their iOS device," said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager of Nuance Mobile. "Twenty-one countries and 18 languages--many of which have launched in just the last year--is an incredible milestone for the Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search apps. And, we'll continue to roll them out to other regions through the end of the year and into 2012."

Both Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search are available for free from the Russian Apple App Store.

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, and Russian. The applications  are available in the U.S., Canadian, Mexican, U.K., German, French, Italian, Australian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Taiwanese, Hong Kong, Korean, Swiss, Austrian, Dutch, Belgian, Norwegian, Swedish, and Russian App Stores.
