Nuance Dragon Dictation App Now Available From App Store

Lets iPhone Users Speak E-mails, Text Messages and More to Stay Connected without Typing

Burlington, MA, December 8, 2009 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced the availability of its Dragon Dictation App on the App Store. The app allows iPhone users to speak emails and text messages instead of typing them, dramatically extending the way users stay connected to friends and family. Dragon Dictation also works with the iPhone clipboard, allowing users to speak naturally and easily paste it into their other apps, including Facebook and Twitter. The app is currently free for a limited time.

“Dragon Dictation takes the messaging experience on the revolutionary iPhone to a whole new level,” said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. “Dragon Dictation is also incredibly natural and intuitive. Users will soon find they’re speaking more than typing using the power of speech to communicate even faster, whatever they’re doing and wherever they are."

With the Dragon Dictation App, spoken words are instantly transcribed using the world-renowned power of Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition, giving anyone the power to simply “say anything” up to five times faster than typing. Dragon Dictation allows users to speak anything from a one-line text message or status update for Facebook, to a multi-paragraph e-mail. For instance, simply say, “We should meet at the restaurant at 7 and then go to the movies. I’ll pick up Scott in Cupertino after he gets off work. See you then.” Users can start and stop as needed or just speak free form to capture a quick brainstorm idea or reminder. It’s completely up to you.

The Dragon Dictation App is available for free for a limited time from the App Store on iPhone or at
