Nuance Communications (NASDAQ: NUAN), a leading provider of speech solutions, today unveiled a ground-breaking prototype for voice search capabilities shown on the Apple iPhone (NASDAQ: AAPL).
The newly designed application introduces a new, more compelling consumer and search experience. Through Nuance speech recognition servers, mobile consumers – with no training required – can simply speak requests into their phone like “Find the Apple store in Boston, Massachusetts,” “Score of the Boston Celtics game,” or “Play Hannah Montana Best of Both Worlds” to quickly and accurately search the mobile web or in the future dictate an IM, SMS or e-mail message. The prototype, code-named “OVS” for open voice search, will allow mobile operators to offer simple ‘say anything’ search capabilities and is search engine agnostic, able to link to any search engine of an operator’s choosing.
