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,

pop-up toolbar with app icons for easy access to email, SMS, Facebook or
Twitter status bars, or the clipboard. Dragon Dictation also includes a

quickly and easily find information and answers on the mobile Web. Dragon
Search is the only app to feature Nuance’s unique and innovative Dragon Search
Carousel, which delivers faster, smarter 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 orYahoo!, 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, Nuance Mobile.
21 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,” Thompson added.
Nuance Communications recently announced an agreement
to acquire Loquendo, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Telecom Italia. The
combination of Nuance and Loquendo’s innovations will advance the proliferation
of voice-enabled solutions.
Acquisition will accelerate the development of new
capabilities that will deliver natural, conversational interactions between
consumers and the contact center, automobiles, mobile phones, and other
consumer devices in Europe and Latin America.
