Nuance Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search Now Available in Canadian French
Due to popular demand in Canada, Nuance Communications, has released a version of Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search applications for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that supports Canadian French. Already experiencing great success in Canada supporting U.S. English, the Dragon apps now provide Canadian French speakers the ability to create email, text messages, status updates, and search the Web simply by using their voice.
Canadian French marks the 10th language supported by the Dragon apps, which have been experienced by millions around the world in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, and Japan. Canadian French is available to all users worldwide as a result of the Dragon Apps' multi-lingual capabilities, allowing consumers to toggle between all supported languages as they become available.
"The U.S. English versions of the Dragon apps have already received enormous praise in Canada. However, we wanted to ensure that even more Canadians were able to experience the power of mobile voice technology," said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager of Nuance Mobile. "This is just the latest release in our mission to bring the Dragon apps to more consumers in more places around the globe, answering the demand for intuitive and innovative voice-enabled mobile interfaces."
Dragon Dictation for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad gives people the ability to dictate content for email, text messages and social media updates, more than five times faster than typing. The latest version is iOS-4 compatible and features a pop-up toolbar with app icons for accessing and speaking content directly into email and text message apps, Facebook or Twitter status bars, or the clipboard.
Dragon Search for iPhone and iPod touch lets users speak any search query to find any content on the mobile Web across multiple channels all at once, including Google or Yahoo!, and Wikipedia, iTunes, YouTube, and Twitter.
