Dragon Dictation for IPhone

PCWorld: Dragon Dictation for IPhone

Now hear this: Dragon Dictation is shaping up to be the essential voice app for the iPhone and iPod touch. You say the words and they appear as you said them with remarkable accuracy. Although the technology isn’t new, the application from Nuance Communications is novel and terrific. And for the moment, at least, you can take advantage of it for free.

Users who never found much utility in the Dragon Naturally Speaking desktop products–I was one of them–might find some use for Nuance Communication’s app on their handhelds. At its best, Dragon Dictation lets you easily update Twitter and Facebook or compose short e-mails or SMS messages by speaking rather than fumbling with the keyboard. The developer claims that speaking and seeing your words instantly transcribed is up to five times faster than tapping out the same message on your iPhone or iPod touch. You will have every reason to believe that’s true after just a few minutes experimenting with the app.
