Latest Swype Beta update features Nuance’s Dragon Dictation software

by George Heymann|@techeadlines

There are a lot of great keyboards for Android. I have been an especially fickle consumer regularly jumping between a number of excellent choices. If you haven’t had a chance to use Swype with Dragon Dictate you’re in for a treat, it’s a great keyboard with an easy-to-use and very accurate voice recognition app that allows you to speak your text and have it transcribed automatically.

The latest Swype keyboard beta integrates directly with Nuance’s latest Android app Dragon Go which utilizes advanced language modeling for an up to 40% increase in prediction accuracy. The application learns over time as you use it, building up a personal language profile for you.

The latest Swype Beta features includes:

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Support
  • Swype Add-ons with DragonGo
  • Downloadable languages for tablets
  • Accuracy improvements

The current version of Swype with Dragon Dictate supports English, French, Canadian, Italian, German and Spanish for voice-to-text. There are plans to expand the list of supported languages in 2012. If your language is not currently supported, Dragon Dictation will default to English regardless of your current keyboard layout.

In order to download the latest Swype Beta you must register at with an email address accessible via your mobile device. You will then receive a link to download the latest Swype beta. Please note if your phone came pre-installed with Swype don’t download this beta as it won’t work with your device.
