Now iPhone user can turn their device into wireless microphone by using Nuance’s Dragon Remote Microphone app, with Dragon Naturally Speaking speech recognition software which is currently support Windows-only. The Mac compatibility app version will be available in App store soon. The Nuance’s Dragon Remote Microphone app is free to download. All you need is connect your iPhone and computer with same Wi-Fi network.
In conjunction with the launch of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5, Nuance introduced the Dragon Remote Mic App, a free application on the Apple iOS app store which makes it possible to use an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad as a wireless microphone for Dragon via a Wi-Fi network connection. Many customers have requested to use their smartphones and other mobile devices with Dragon to have more flexibility with how and where they dictate with Dragon. The new Dragon Remote Mic App takes advantage of the nearly 200 million iOS devices in use today, and transforms the device into a wireless microphone that easily captures dictation and controls applications on your PC.
In internet plenty of rumors were floating about Apple possibly integrating Nuance technology into iOS 5 and some leaked screenshots which expose Nuance dictation to be integrated, which may enable speech-to-text input.
During WWDC Nuance’s absence was notable, Nuance voice recognition technology has also been found in the developer’s preview OS X Lion in the form of new text-to-speech voices and has been rumored, Apple may already be running Nuance’s translation software in the Apple North Carolina data centre. However this app is not part of that mix. This app allows user to use their iPhone as a microphone for the desktop apps.
