Nuance Swype Now Exclusive Keyboard for OPPO International Version

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that its popular living, learning Swype keyboard for Android smartphones and tablets is now the default keyboard for OPPO, one of the top smartphone brands in China. The agreement includes expanded languages for regions such as South East Asia and Latin America – all part of Swype’s Living Language platform with optional sign-up that grows, learns and personalizes the user experience. No download required.

Swype is the most personal, powerful and customizable four-in-one keyboard for Android, allowing people to quickly glide their finger from one letter to the next to input text – or simply tap, speak or handwrite letters, numbers and symbols. OPPO is passionate about exploring and integrating cutting-edge technology. Together with Swype’s adaptive platform, OPPO will offer smartphone users a language platform and input method that deploy a differentiated keyboard experience.

Swype’s Living Language platform uses crowdsourcing to analyze new words and phrases in real-time, continuously updating its language dictionaries. Swype features intuitive bilingual support for languages that allows users to enter text in two selected languages, quickly and easily. And, words suggested by Swype will automatically adjust to the bilingual user’s language preference. Swype’s bilingual keyboard capabilities support over 1,000 language combinations, including standards like English-Spanish, Thai-English, Vietnamese-French, Czech-Russian, and many more.

“Since entering the mobile market in 2008, we have been relentless in our pursuit of the latest technology, the highest quality and the most user-friendly products. We are confident that we will stay ahead and provide our customers differentiation with Swype’s intelligent and intuitive keyboard capabilities, while enhancing our global reach in the process. We are thrilled to share this contemporary take on text-input with our customers and partners for the emerging markets in the region,” said Sky Li, Director of Overseas Business, OPPO.

“Working with Nuance, OPPO is able to offer an adaptive and simplified way to engage with mobile devices in over 70 languages and especially in the fast-developing markets in South East Asia,” said Aaron Sheedy, vice president of mobile product, Mobile and Consumer Division, Nuance. “With an expanded presence in Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and India, OPPO platforms will integrate Nuance’s Swype for intuitive and customizable keyboard experiences.”
