BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that its Dragon voice and natural language understanding technologies power T-Mobile’s new Genius Search feature on the T-Mobile myTouch and myTouch Q. Accessed via T-Mobile’s popular voice-enabled Genius Button, Genius Search lets people simply speak to get instant, direct access to information and mobile content from over 200 content providers.

T-Mobile’s Genius Button already provides people with one-shot voice-enabled access to calls, text messaging, email, and navigation. With the addition of Genius Search, people now have an even more intelligent and intuitive way to find the content and information they want on the mobile web. Genius Search hears what you say and understands what you want, delivering results from the content providers consumers rely on the most, including AccuWeather, Ask.com, Bing, Dictionary.com, ESPN, Expedia, Facebook, Fandango, Last.fm, LiveNation, Milo.com, OpenTable, Pandora ® internet radio, Rotten Tomatoes, Spotify, Twitter, Wikipedia, Wolfram|Alpha, Yelp, YouTube, Yahoo! and many others.

“The Genius Button on T-Mobile’s myTouch smartphone lineup was among the first to show how powerful a deeply-integrated one-shot voice interface is for an easy to learn and easy to use mobile experience,” said Andrew Morrison, vice president of product management, T-Mobile USA. “With the addition of Genius Search, we’re further enhancing the ability for T-Mobile myTouch customers to quickly and easily access the mobile content they want – whenever they want it – just by using their voice.”
