Speak! and let IPHONE write it for you !

A few days back, I had to write a lengthy email while travelling. In routine use, I like to write short texts and emails with tapping on iphone screen but I found it to be boring and time taking to write long emails. I wished for an application which could help me with this mess and to my amaze Nuance Communications have made this wish a reality by releasing its application for iphone know as “Dragon Dictation”.


The software is very user friendly and extremely easy to use. Just open an application, hit record button and start speaking, Dragon Dictation will send your speech to software developer Nuance’s server, whose algorithm analyzes your speech and then the application shows you in written form what you spoke. Then, you will have an option to send the text via SMS or an email. You can also keep the text in the clipboard to paste it anywhere else.

The software is quite fast and accurate. As per Nuance Communications, the software is about 5 times faster as compared to typing on a computer.

Dragon Dictation is an easy-to-use voice recognition application powered by Dragon NaturallySpeaking that allows you to easily speak and instantly see your text or email messages. In fact, it’s up to five (5) times faster than typing on the keyboard.

One thing which I noticed is that it censors many words like it gives * for F word. Due to this feature, it has got a rating of 4+ on an application store. It is a free application but currently only available for US iTunes store.
