Nuance mobile developer program brings voice to Yellow Pages app

Nuance Communications announced that its Nuance Mobile
Developer Program continues to launch voice-enabled apps for iOS and Android,
most recently the Yellow Pages app from Avantar, EZ CM Connect and CapnTrans.


The Nuance Mobile Developer Program has engaged more than 3,000 iOS and Android developers looking to voice-enable
their apps with the power of Dragon.


The Nuance Mobile Developer Program provides developers
with access to the capability-rich Dragon Mobile SDK that features the core

Dragon Mobile SDK, developers can fully voice-enable any app and rapidly bring
it to market, even if they have never implemented speech technology before. Among

Integrating the power of Dragon into our Yellow Pages
iPhone and iPad apps was an easy way for us to further differentiate our
extremely popular and pioneering navigation local business search app,” said
Adrian Ochoa, president, Avantar.  


The Yellow Pages app is free, easier to use than the
printed book, and now our users can simply speak the name of the business name,
person, or phone number they’re looking for, and it instantly appears with
contact information, directions based on where you are located, turn-by-turn
driving navigation, and much more. Use it once and you’ll wonder how you ever
got along without it,” Ochoa added.


It’s inspiring to see that more than 3,000 developers
have taken advantage of our self-service program to voice enable apps with the
Dragon Mobile SDK,” said Matt Revis, vice president of product management and
marketing, Nuance Mobile.


And the range of apps is incredible – business search,
shopping, translation and work order management – showcasing that the
possibilities of what voice can enable is truly endless,” Revis added.


The Dragon Mobile SDK powers the voice recognition and
text-to-speech capabilities of some of the most popular apps on the market,
including Siri, Price Check by Amazon, Ask for iPhone, Merriam-Webster,, SpeechTrans, Aisle411, AirYell, iTranslate, Taskmind and


Nuance’s mobile voice technology featured as part of the
Dragon Mobile SDK and renowned Dragon Mobile Apps family brings the power of
Dragon NaturallySpeaking to the iOS and Android platform across a variety of
applications and services – supporting a broad range of languages.


Nuance’s portfolio of speech and predictive text
solutions are trusted by the world’s leading manufacturers and mobile
operators, and are found in billions of phones and millions of automobiles and
consumer electronic devices – making them among the most pervasive mobile
