Nuance Communications is marking the tenth anniversary of its speech recognition software Dragon NaturallySpeaking with celebrations planned around the world.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 1.0 was introduced in April 1997 as the first general-purpose continuous-speech recognition solution for the PC. The program is currently in its ninth incarnation.

“Speech recognition has come a long way in a relatively short period of time, and we are proud that Dragon NaturallySpeaking has led in accuracy and innovations every step of the way,” said Robert Weideman, senior vice president and general manager of productivity applications for Nuance.

“We honor all that have made this possible – from the dedicated and innovative development teams to the diligent and effective sales and marketing professionals. But most of all we thank the millions of loyal users and press professionals who are an instrumental part of making the Dragon family of products and technologies invaluable for everyone.”
