Nuance Powers Voice Dictation for Snapguide App

Using voice dictation technology from Nuance, Snapguide users will now be able to dictate text for visual captions as they create guides.

Snapguide enables users to find, document, and share how-to guides on their devices, with visually rich content that can feature photos, videos, and step-by-step instructions that can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and email. By integrating Dragon voice recognition, Snapguide lets users speak the text accompanying the visual elements of their own how-to guides. Snapguide is currently available for free via the Apple App Store.

"The concept of Snapguide is deep rooted in the ability to create, show, and share simple step-by-step instructions for anything, be it cooking recipes or crafts. By integrating the Dragon voice recognition technology, people can create guides and share them in the simplest way possible, just by speaking," said Daniel Raffel, Snapguide founder, in a statement.

Snapguide is the latest app to integrate Nuance voice technology via the Dragon Mobile SDK and the NDEV Mobile Developer. Other apps using the technology include Price Check by Amazon, Kraft Foods iFood Assistant, Ask for iPhone, Merriam-Webster, Dictionary.com, Shopping List from Recipe.com, OnStar RemoteLink, iTranslate, Bon'App, and more.

"Consumers love the ability to speak to their phones and apps," said Matt Revis, vice president and general manager, handset business, Nuance Mobile. "NDEV Mobile empowers social app developers like Snapguide to deliver that experience to their users. And because it's powered by Dragon, people are amazed at the quality of the experience, be it sending an email, or sharing ideas with friends and family via Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest."
