Nuance Unveils New Personal Assistants And Keyboards For Wearable Devices At CES 2014

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that it continues to innovate intelligent systems for wearable devices with Dragon Mobile Assistant and Nuance’s Swype keyboard for smartwatches. Nuance will be demonstrating how device makers can bring Nuance’s leading personal assistant features and innovative predictive input keyboard capabilities to a broad array of emerging consumer electronics.

“Wearable technology marks an important evolution in the way people interact with devices,” said Michael Thompson, executive vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. “Leveraging our powerful Nuance Cloud Services, we are creating intelligent systems optimized for devices with smaller screens where buttons and menus are not practical, or perhaps even not possible. Wearables were made for voice, natural language understanding, and Swype.”

Working with Omate, Nuance is unveiling the vision for Dragon Mobile Assistant for wearable devices, which will be displayed on Omate’s TrueSmart Android smartwatch at CES 2014. Dragon Mobile Assistant brings an intelligent and customizable personal assistant to the smartwatch experience. People can simply speak to their watch to make calls, send emails or text messages, set reminders, manage their calendar, search the Web, and update social media. And, with a quick flick from the watch face, users can immediately access game scores from their favorite sports team, quotes for their most important stocks, restaurant recommendations, and the local weather.

“Dragon Mobile Assistant demonstrated on the Omate TrueSmart showcases how intelligent assistants are creating a new generation of wearable devices. The ability to simply speak to the device on your wrist to send emails, text messages, set reminders, and search the web is an incredibly compelling and rich experience that we at Omate are thrilled to work on with Nuance,” Laurent Le Pen, CEO, Omate.

Nuance will also be demonstrating new Dragon Mobile Assistant features that facilitate music discovery and home automation as part of the wearable device experience. Through the utilization of music recognition technology from Gracenote, Nuance is making it easier than ever to identify songs playing, discover hot new artists and connect to music services. Hear a song playing you like, just say “Hello Dragon, what song is this?” and using Gracenote technology and metadata, Dragon Mobile Assistant will identify the artist, album and track. From there, wearable device users can launch playlists from popular Cloud-music services.
