The Snapguide app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad now features voice dictation capabilities that are powered by Nuance. Snapguide integrates Nuance voice recognition technology via the Dragon Mobile SDK and the NDEV Mobile Developer program.
Snapguide enables people to find, document and share how-to guides on their device, with photos, videos and step-by-step instructions, which can be shared via email, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. With Dragon voice recognition, Snapguide allows users to speak the text that accompanies the visual elements of their own how-to guides. The app is now available on the Apple App Store for free.
“The concept of Snapguide is deep rooted in the ability to create, show and share simple step-by-step instructions for anything – be it cooking recipes or crafts. By integrating the Dragon voice recognition technology, people can create guides and share them in the simplest way possible – just by speaking,” said Daniel Raffel, founder, Snapguide.
Nuance’s Dragon Mobile SDK allows developers to build voice-enabled apps. The Dragon Mobile SDK powers the voice recognition capabilities of some of many apps, including Price Check by Amazon, Kraft Foods’ iFood Assistant, Ask for iPhone, Merriam-Webster, Dictionary.com, Shopping List from Recipe.com, OnStar RemoteLink, iTranslate, Bon’App, and more.
