Dragon Express Brings Siri-Like Speech-To-Text To Your Mac



Want Siri-like abilities on your Mac? Nuance has just launched their latest Dragon product onto the Mac App Store. Called Dragon Express, the $49 app brings Nuance speech recognition to your menu bar… the same powerful engine Siri uses to crunch your voice!

Dragon Express is a scaled back version of Dragon Dictate that sits in your Lion menubar. Just trigger a keyboard shortcut or mouse click to tell the app you’re ready to speak.

At that point, Dragon Express will begin to take dictation. Once you’re done, you’re able to email, Google, copy, Tweet, Facebook or send that text to an application. Pretty swank, although $49 may be a bit rich for my blood.
