Nuance Communications, Inc. NUAN -1.71% today announced that its Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search applications for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad are now available for free in Egypt in the Apple App Store, supporting the Standard Arabic language. The launch in Egypt follows the availability of the apps in Saudi Arabia and UAE, providing iOS consumers with the ability to quickly and easily dictate SMS text messages, emails, social media updates, mobile Web searches and more, up to five times faster than typing.

"Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search have quickly expanded their availability across the Middle East, with launches in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and now Egypt in just the last month, providing Arabic speaking consumers with the ability to stay connected with the power of Dragon," said Anil Kumar, Regional Director, Nuance Middle East and Balkans. "And the success of each launch in over 30 countries clearly demonstrates the global demand for simpler and faster mobile interactions made possible with voice."

Dragon Dictation is iOS-5 compatible and features a pop-up toolbar with app icons that enable users to easily send their dictated text to email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, or the clipboard. Dragon Dictation also includes a convenient Auto Save function that retains dictated text when the user is interrupted by an incoming phone call.

Dragon Search is also now available in Egypt, allowing users to simply speak their search query in Standard Arabic to quickly and easily find information and answers on the mobile Web. Dragon Search features Nuance's unique and innovative Dragon Search Carousel, which delivers faster, smarter search results within seconds across multiple channels all at once including Google, Yahoo!, Twitter, iTunes, Wikipedia and YouTube.

Both Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search are available for free from the App Store in Egypt.
