Nuance Unveils Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 – Enabling More Accurate, Natural and Intuitive Interaction with the PC

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 – the fastest and most accurate speech recognition software available for the PC. Dragon transforms the PC experience by turning your voice into text and actionable commands much faster than most people can type. By making navigation and text-entry tasks dramatically faster and easier, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 allows you to reach your full potential by helping you get more done on your computer.

Dragon 13 offers a complete voice solution by touching on virtually every aspect of the PC experience – making it easy to navigate, command and control your PC by voice, and supporting fast, accurate dictation for both local applications, such as Microsoft Word, and web applications, including email and social media. And, by leveraging the latest advancements in Nuance speech recognition science and technology, Dragon 13 is faster and more accurate than ever before.

Dragon 13 has significantly enhanced out-of-the-box accuracy, and continues to get smarter as it automatically adapts to your personal writing style and preferences by learning the words and phrases that you use the most. Composing and editing documents, sending emails, searching the Web, updating popular social media sites like Facebook or Twitter – Dragon enables you to use your computer in a comfortable, ergonomic way so that you can use your voice to get more done faster than you would using a keyboard and mouse alone. With the help of Dragon, users are able to continue pushing the boundaries of productivity gains and ease of use with the PC.

Dragon 13 offers support for many microphone options, including, for the first time, microphones built-in to many of the latest laptops, offering greater freedom and flexibility – no headset required. Dragon 13 automatically detects which microphones are available to use, so you simply select your preference and start talking.

Dragon 13 now also supports voice commands and Full Text Control (using your voice to perform direct dictation, text selection or correction and cursor movement within text) in popular web applications such as Gmail, Outlook.com and Yahoo! Mail in Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. For example, simply tell your computer to “Open Internet Explorer,” and from there, use your voice to navigate to Facebook, scroll through your news feed and select photos and links. Or, use your voice to open Gmail, address and compose a message, insert a personal signature and send your note – no typing or clicking required.

Dragon 13 also features a contemporary, intuitive interface and helpful tutorials that make using Dragon easier than ever before. In just four simple steps, you can set up your Dragon profile to get started and experience the speed and accuracy of Dragon 13 right away. Boost your productivity even further by exploring advanced features with the easy-to-use Learning Center, which displays relevant help at your fingertips.

“Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 offers increased accuracy, improved design and flexibility, and a robust web experience – and that adds up to a more intuitive and productive experience for customers,” said Peter Mahoney, Nuance’s chief marketing officer and general manager for Dragon. “Dragon continues to serve as a complete voice solution for the PC, capable of impressive performance across programs, browsers and applications. Both new and longtime users of Dragon will find their interactions with the PC completely transformed, as they use their voice to get more things done in a faster and more natural way.”
