Nuance’s Dragon Mobile Assistant Debuts Voice Biometric Technology

Dragon Mobile Assistant Introduces Nuance Voiceprint, the Next Level of Personalization

Burlington, Mass. – April 1, 2014 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that its Dragon Mobile Assistant app, available free to consumers on Android, now features Nuance Voiceprint biometric technology as well as an enhanced web experience and full landscape support. The intelligent, hands-free experience of Dragon Mobile Assistant just got even smarter – and much more personal.

Dragon Mobile Assistant already offers a unique and comprehensive suite of proactive features that keep users organized, productive and connected. Now, with voice biometric technology, users can use their individual voiceprint so Dragon Mobile Assistant recognizes and responds to them – and only them – providing a truly personal experience. Further, mobile device users can use their voice to awaken their device and give it a command in one shot, even if Dragon Mobile Assistant is only in the background, or the phone is locked or asleep.

In addition, Dragon Mobile Assistant now supports landscape mode. Users can now dock their device in landscape mode and interact hands-free, enhancing the Driver Mode experience. Also, the new, in-app browser experience is faster and renders more content, more efficiently. Users can even share web results with others directly from the screen.
