Nuance’s Dragon dictation software is now available free in App World. Dragon for Email allows users to speak emails, regardless of whether they’re creating, replying or forwarding a message. Dragon for Email is integrated directly into your BlackBerry email, allowing you to switch between voice and text input interchangeably at any time to enter the contact name, subject line, or full message body.
This is a pretty awesome feature that doesn’t normally come free on BlackBerry. Most dictation software will cost you around $10, and Dragon for Email is only free for a limited time. Dragon for Email is now available for the BlackBerry Tour, Storm and Storm2 on Verizon; the Bold and Curve series on AT&T; and, the Curve and the BlackBerry Bold on T-Mobile.
