(NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that its Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search applications for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad are now available for free in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the Apple App Store, supporting the Standard Arabic language. Already downloaded by tens of millions worldwide, Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search allow people to quickly and easily dictate SMS text messages, emails, social media updates, mobile Web searches and more, up to five times faster than typing.
“We are very excited to now bring the power of voice to the UAE, after having launched the Apps in Saudi Arabia two weeks ago.

Dragon Dictation is iOS-5 compatible and features a pop-up toolbar with app icons that enable users to easily send their dictated text to email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, or the clipboard. Dragon Dictation also includes a convenient Auto Save function that retains dictated text when the user is interrupted by an incoming phone call.
