Dragon has long been well-known in the voice recognition game, and two of its iOS apps – Dragon Search (for iPhone) and Dragon Dictation (universal) – have been popular overseas since their release in December 2009. Unofortunately, they never quite made their way to Australia – until today. Nuance Communications has just released both apps on the Australian App Store.
Dragon Search lets you quickly search Google, YouTube, Twitter, iTunes or Wikipedia just by talking to your iPhone.
Dragon Dictation takes it a step further, allowing you to dictate text for just about anything. From within the app, you can copy the text or send it via SMS and email. You can also use it to update your Facebook status, or share it via Twitter.
“The continued popularity of the Dragon apps has been nothing short of amazing and we are pleased that we can now extend the power of mobile voice capabilities to our local fans,” said Nuance senior vice president of Asia Pacific, Jason Stirling. “Millions of people have downloaded Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search worldwide since we launched the apps in 2009 and we hope to continue that success here in Australia.”
Both apps are free for a limited time on the App Store.
