Nuance’s Mobile Developer Program launches voice-enabled applications for iOS and Android. The most recent app launched by the Program is the Yellow Pages app from Avantar, EZ CM Connect and CapnTrans.

The Mobile Developer Program gives developers access to the Dragon Mobile software development kit that delivers speech recognition technology. With the SDK, developers can enable apps with voice, even if they have no experience in implementing speech technology before. Some of the latest releases are:

Yellow Pages app from Avantar. The app allows consumers to speak the search details of their their local business to search and access information on the go.
EZ CM Connect. This latest app from EZ Access is designed to let project team members review and share project documents created in Oracle's Primavera Contract Management.
CapnTrans: This translation app from Keystone Technology now delivers voice recognition to allows users to speak words and have them translated into English, French, German, Chinese, and Japanese.

“Integrating the power of Dragon into our Yellow Pages iPhone and iPad apps was an easy way for us to further differentiate our extremely popular and pioneering navigation local business search app.  The Yellow Pages app is free, easier to use than the printed book, and now our users can simply speak the name of the business name, person, or phone number they’re looking for, and it instantly appears with contact information, directions based on where you are located, turn-by-turn driving navigation, and much more. Use it once and you'll wonder how you ever got along without it,” said Adrian Ochoa, president of Avantar.
