Following on from its launch in July on iOS Nuance has today launched the their new free Dragon Go! application for Google’s Android mobile OS. The new Dragon Go! app combines Nuance’s Dragon voice recognition and natural language understanding with artificial intelligence technology. Providing a voice recognition app for Android, that not only hears what you say, but actually understands what you mean.
Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile explains:
“Legacy search applications are fading in mobile. Consumers want immediate and direct access to content – not scrolling, hunting or pecking through search links or filtered content,”-“Dragon Go! gives people the freedom to speak freely, and magically get the content they want.
Dragon Go! features the largest direct-access content ecosystem in mobile today. Consumers can say virtually anything and immediately jump to relevant destinations.”
For example, here are a few phrases you can use to find information quickly:
“What’s the best Thai food near me,” and instantly be taken to the Yelp tab for local reviews, or flip over to the Phone tab to quickly call to find out about any specials on the menu that evening.
“Reservations for two at Slanted Door in San Francisco,” to be taken directly to OpenTable to book a table for dinner, or scroll over to the Maps tab to find out how to get there from where you are now.
Nuance’s new Dragon Go! app is now available for free on the Android Market.
