Dragon Dictation is a speech recognition App for Apple's iOS platforms including iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The App provides automatic speech-to-text capabilities. It was developed by Nuance Communications, and released in December 2009 as a free App. Dragon Dictation speech recognition is based on Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition technology from Nuance Communications. It works as an online solution, requiring an Internet connection by the user. Other Apps which use the same speech recognition technology include Siri Personal Assistant. In July 2010, Nuance reported that there had been 3.7 million downloads of their iPhone Apps, and Dragon Dictation ranked as the number one business productivity app in Apple's iTunes App Store.
