Nuance And ZTE To Collaborate On Portfolio Of Voice-Enabled Android Devices

Stocks in this article: NUAN

Nuance Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) and ZTE Corporation today announced a multi-year collaboration where Nuance’s voice capabilities will be integrated as part of a new portfolio of ZTE Android devices worldwide. The result will be a diverse set of mobile applications and devices that foster a more natural, human interaction between people and their ZTE phone – in more than 25 languages. Among those applications is ZTE’s new Car Mode application unveiled at CES 2013 in Las Vegas.

Car Mode integrates Nuance’s powerful voice capabilities to let users speak to stay connected to people and the content they love, without bringing additional manual-visual distractions into the car. Taking advantage of Nuance’s automotive-grade voice technology and expertise, ZTE’s Car Mode application is embedded within the device to provide people with reliable, always available hands-free, eyes-free access to the phone functions that are used the most while driving, such as making phone calls, reading text messages and accessing music – no network or data connection required and in noisy automotive environments.

People simply engage Car Mode with a hands-free wake-up word, and the app is at their command to dial contacts and numbers, launch navigation apps, get the local weather, and play music on the device. Further, Car Mode announces incoming callers and reads incoming text messages aloud with Nuance’s natural text to speech, and allows people to barge in with new voice commands or cancel incoming audio when needed. Car Mode also features a “Do not disturb” mode where drivers can further minimize distractions by blocking all incoming calls and text messages until they arrive at their destination – with notifications available of those calls and text messages missed.

“Mobile means being connected at any time, any place. By integrating Nuance’s voice technologies as a core part of our Android device lineup and mobile applications, our consumers can simply speak to elicit an intelligent response from their phone – no hands required,” said Mr. Kan Yulun, Corporate Vice President of ZTE Corporation and CTO of the ZTE Mobile Device Division.
