Nuance introduces a new cool features in Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5, available as a free upgrade for all Dragon v11 customers. If you registered your software after making a purchase, you will receive a notification when the free download is available.
The software now has an available iOS application for iPhones, iPads and iPod touches that turns the devices into a remote wireless mic (note: The app currently only works with the Windows version of the software). Additionally, the latest version makes social networking, such as Facebook and Twitter posts, simpler by including a social network tie-in.
Peter Mahoney, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Dragon at Nuance, says:
As mobile devices and social networks have become a more important part of our customers’ lives, they have asked us for more flexibility in how they can use Dragon. People who have never tried Dragon before will be genuinely impressed with all the ways it lets you interact with your digital world. Those who are already familiar with Dragon will see some exciting improvements that extend its use with social sharing, and add flexibility with microphones and recording devices.
The new Dragon Remote Microphone is different from Nuance’s previous app for iOS, Dragon Dictation, which lets users speak to send text messages, emails, and social media updates. The new app is only useful with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5 or higher. The Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium version adds playback of recorded speech command sequences, multiple dictation sources, and more.
