Nuance announced this week that that their PaperPort Notes app for the Apple iPad now has dictation capabilities powered by Nuance’s Dragon voice recognition – which means you can create notes on the iPad by speaking. This is a great app for busy moms who barely have time to type anything – but who can sneak in a few notes by speaking. While there are many ways now to interact with mobile devices using voice – I am happy to see established brands like Nuance adding new voice features to productivity apps. Until an Android version is available, those with Android mobile devices can try Dragon Go for general dictation (also available in iTunes) and Google applications like Voice Search.
While Siri has fascinated many with it’s voice features for the iPhone 4S, I am happy to see other alternatives available for the many other mobile devices.
