Voice control of smartphones can be a useful way to interact with information and to make things happen when using the hands is not an option. I have been using Dragon Dictation on the iPhone and the iPad quite happily, and find them to be great tools. I am happy to report that the folks at Nuance, makers of Dragon Dictation, have shared that Dragon Dictation is now available for the BlackBerry.

Dragon Dictation for Email is the company’s solution providing easy email creation totally hands-free. Users can create and respond to emails by simply speaking what they wish to put in the email. The Nuance transcription is almost instantaneous, allowing quick verification that the speech was transcribed properly.

Dragon Dictation for Email is available free for a limited time in the BlackBerry App Market. The program is verified for use with the BlackBerry® Tour™, BlackBerry® Storm and BlackBerry® Storm2 on the Verizon network; the BlackBerry® Bold™ series and BlackBerry® Curve series on the AT&T network; and, the BlackBerry® Curve series and the BlackBerry® Bold on the T-Mobile network.
