Nuance Communications has announced that its voice recognition software Dragon has been officially approved by the Federal Government's National Disability Insurance Scheme.

"Nuance has long been committed to helping those with disability improve their quality of life through the use of assistive technology," said Derek Austin, Dragon Business Manager, Asia Pacific, Nuance.

"‘The NDIS approval of Dragon reaffirms our continued commitment to providing assistive technology and allows us to leverage our existing work in this field to increase awareness of the benefits of the solution among people with disability."

Nuance say their registration as an approved NDIS supplier will provides Dragon with greater and direct visibility among people with disabilities.

"Ideally, the NDIS will bring greater diversity and competition to the sector, but most importantly, it will let people with disability exercise choice and control over the tools they wish to use to support their needs and hopefully, improve their lives," said Derek.

As part of its ongoing commitment to the sector, Nuance has also released a dedicated Dragon solution for the PC and Mac called Dragon Accessibility. 

"We are really pleased to be able to offer a tailored and high quality communication solution such as Dragon Accessibility because we know that Dragon can make a difference to the lives of people with disability," Derek says.  

Dragon Accessibility will be available from October through Nuance’s Dragon Partners and Accessibility Specialists.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
