Nuance’s Dragon Go! available in Apple app store


Nuance Communications announced Dragon Go!, a free
application for iPhone and iPod touch that gives consumers immediate, direct
access to the mobile content they want.


Dragon Go! marks a leap in the mobile content experience
to pick up where search leaves off. It offers direct access to relevant results
from 180 of the most trusted and reliable content providers, including
AccuWeather, Bing, ESPN, Facebook, Fandango, iTunes,, LiveNation,, OpenTable, Pandora, internet radio, Rotten Tomatoes, Twitter,
Wikipedia, Yelp, YouTube, Yahoo! and many others with the list of content providers
growing each day.


With Dragon Go! people speak a query, and the app
automatically determines and then delivers the best content destinations via
the newly optimized Dragon Carousel. Gone are the days of endless scrolling.
Dragon Go! always puts the most relevant pages front and center, and additional
content from related providers is easily accessible on the Carousel with just a
simple flick of the finger.


Dynamic results are provided center and to the right,
with additional results from Google, Bing or Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Twitter and
YouTube available to the left.


Dragon Go! combines Nuance’s Dragon
voice recognition technology with natural language understanding, unique
analytical tools, and elements of artificial intelligence.


The result is an app that understands the intent of a
query, and what a person wants to do – be it getting restaurant reviews, buying
movie tickets, shopping, finding directions, listening to their favorite music,
and more.


Dragon Go! showcases Nuance’s advancements in Natural
Language Understanding, taking an open-ended spoken query and not only making
the input easier and faster, but also enhancing the way people consume mobile
web content and apps,” said Vlad Sejnoha, chief technical officer, Nuance.


By understanding the intended actions of the mobile
consumer, we can eliminate multiple intervening steps, and take people directly
to where they want to end up be it Pandora, Yelp, Fandango, LiveNation, and
many, many other apps and sites,” Sejnoha added.


Additionally, Dragon Go! lets people quickly and easily
share information with their social networks through a pop-up toolbar to share
links by email, text message, Facebook or Twitter. And when speaking to Dragon
Go! is not an option, people can easily pull up the keypad and type in text as


Dragon Go! delivers today’s mobile consumers a level of
instant gratification that has never been available with legacy search
providers,” said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager,
Nuance Mobile.


We intelligently transport users directly to their
destination – no scrolling, links, or tapping, just direct access to the
content providers people love and trust. And this is just the beginning
our range of partners is growing every day, with even more extensive app
integration planned over the next year,” Thompson added.
