Nuance Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search Apps Now Available in UAE
Nuance announced that its Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search applications for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad are now available for free in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the Apple App Store, supporting the Standard Arabic language.
"Following an incredibly successful launch in Saudi Arabia, we are thrilled to make Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search available in the UAE as part of our growth strategy for the Middle East," said Anil Kumar, regional director, Nuance Middle East and Balkans, in a statement. "The UAE also marks the 30th country where the apps are available, further showcasing global demand for voice-enabled mobile interfaces."
Dragon Dictation is iOS-5 compatible and features a pop-up toolbar with app icons that enable users to send their dictated text to email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, 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 is also now available on the UAE App Store, allowing users to speak their search query in Standard Arabic to find information and answers on the mobile Web. Dragon Search features Nuance's Dragon Search Carousel, which delivers search results across multiple channels all at once including Google, Yahoo!, Twitter, iTunes, Wikipedia, and YouTube.
