Nuance Dragon Notes for Windows 8 lets us speak our memos

Sometimes, the smallest and simplest apps make the most sense. Take Nuance's new Dragon Notes for Windows 8, for example. Unlike its NaturallySpeaking cousin, it's not a universal tool: instead, it's narrowly focused on the voice dictation of memos, email, social networking updates and web searches. That limited scope leads to a very simple interface, however, and slims down the price from $100 to a far more accessible $20. Fans of minimalism can grab Dragon Notes directly from Nuance on May 15th, although they'll need to spend $10 for every language they speak beyond English.

Burlington, Mass. – May 15, 2013 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced Dragon Notes, a new app for Windows 8 that lets people quickly speak notes, to-do lists, reminders, status updates, web searches and emails – or anything that comes to mind. Dragon Notes is optimized for Microsoft Windows 8 touchscreen tablets, including the Microsoft Surface Pro. Dragon Notes is also great for quickly capturing and organizing notes and ideas on Microsoft Windows 8 touchscreen PCs and Windows 7 PCs.

Dragon Notes is a quick and fun app that gives people a simple way to capture notes and ideas in the office, at home or on the go – keeping all those sticky notes and paper lists at bay for a more organized digital lifestyle. Dragon Notes takes full advantage of the Windows 8 touchscreen and tile interface – just tap the app and speak to save a note, share a post, send an email or search the web. Whip up a shopping list, share that great recipe via Facebook, or send an email of the action items coming out of a meeting – Dragon Notes even lets you search the Web.

"Dragon Notes is the perfect app for quickly creating notes, to-dos, lists and reminders while keeping you connected to the people and social networks that matter most – all by using your voice," said Matt Revis, vice president and general manager, Dragon Devices, Nuance Mobile.
