BURLINGTON, Mass. & LAS VEGAS -- January 7, 2013

Nuance Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced a further evolution
of intuitive and intelligent keyboards with the launch of Swype Living
Language. An evolution of the Hotwords technology announced in September,
Swype Living Language uses crowdsourcing to analyze new words and phrases in
real-time, continuously updating our language dictionaries.

The Swype keyboard has undergone a rapid transformation in the last year. In
addition to integrating the power of Dragon voice recognition, Swype has also
been augmented by integrating with personalized, intelligent dictionaries that
learn and adapt to the words and phrases that people use most. Now, Swype
Living Language allows people who opt-in to share and receive trending words
and phrases in real-time, creating an up-to-date, crowd-sourced language
model. The result is a predictive input experience that is incredibly simple
and fast, with relevant, trending words and phrases supported as you swype,
write, speak or tap.

Swype now also features Smart Editor, which analyzes an entire sentence,
flagging any potential errors for a quick fix and update, including suggesting
the most likely alternatives based on contextual analysis.

Swype has also expanded dictation capabilities and now supports Dragon
Dictation in a dozen new languages including Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Greek,
Hebrew, Malay, Romanian, Slovak, Turkish, Thai, Vietnamese, and Ukrainian.

“Swype continues to be the best keyboard in the industry, leading the way with
innovations that really work and that people really use – and Swype Living
Language is yet another example,” said Aaron Sheedy, vice president, text
input, Nuance Mobile. “By leveraging the cloud and crowd-sourcing input from
around the world, Swype provides users with a device that further humanizes
interactions through touch—and changes the way our increasingly dynamic
language is learned and used.”
