Nuance Communication popular for their voice recognition software recently ported its latest application for Android, the Dragon Go! This application provides the same voice-command capabilities that iPhone users have with the Dragon Go! application for the iPhone.

This application is made available for free and lets the users speak simple commands into their phones rather than type, tap and swipe to perform various kinds of Web searches. However the main exception to this application is that it connects to more than about 200 reputable websites for mobile content.

Now instead of using a search engine to answer a question for the user, the application will turn to a site that specially defines the users need. Such as the user is searching for a quality food at his nearby location so the application will provide him with a site that specifically knows about locations-based restaurant information.

Dragon Go! taps into a lot of sites like the ESPN, Facebook, Fandango, OpenTable, Rotten Tomatoes, Wikipedia, YouTube, and a lot others to return information that are more relevant than a list of Hyperlinked results.

This is only an input only application unlike the Apple’s Siri which is capable of speaking back to the users. Both these applications are quite the same however while using extensively the Dragon Go! feels like more accurate than the Siri.

The Siri is only available on the iPhone 4S and is built into the software rather than being a downloadable application which is not the case of the Dragon Go!

The Dragon Go! has been announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Nuance Communication also makes advanced voice-recognition software for desktops and laptop computers.
