Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary iPhone App Gains Speech Search Powered by Nuance Dragon Mobile

You probably know that the free Merriam-Webster Dictionary iPhone app can pronounce a word for you by pressing the speaker icon in the red button. But, did you know that you can say a word for it to search for too? You can now by pressing the microphone in the blue button next to the search text box. This activates a speech search powered by Nuance’ Dragon speech platform.
