News : Nuance Brings Embedded Dictation Capabilities to the Car
Burlington, MA, USA, Oct 3, 2016 -- Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) announced that its Dragon Drive connected car framework now features embedded dictation for speaking text messages, notes and more in the car without a data or cloud connection.
"Over the past five years, our research team has set a high standard in automotive speech recognition by applying deep neural networks to optimize accuracy within noisy automotive environments. These advancements, combined with signal enhancement and in-car microphone beamforming results in a simple, intuitive interface designed specifically for the car that continues to set the industry standard for automotive speech recognition," said Vlad Sejnoha, Chief Technology Officer, Nuance.
"The cloud is an incredibly important element of the modern automotive experience, providing access to a range of services and content. However, signal drops and remote areas can turn the connected car into a disconnected experience," said Arnd Weil, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Automotive. "Dragon Drive’s embedded-connected framework gives automakers and consumers the best of both worlds – the ability to connect to content and services while having uninterrupted access to the in-car features that drive safer productivity behind the wheel."
