Nuance, the company that specializes in voice recognition applications, has recently announced that Korean television manufacturing company Samsung, is using its latest technology. The Korean company is one of the leading names in the world of consumer electronics.
Four months after it has officially pitched the Dragon TV “natural language understanding platform” Nuance has partnered up with the group. Rumor has it that this California based software company is the power behind the Apple iPhone assistant Siri. However, no one from either side has confirmed this story.
With the new voice recognition technology integrated unto a Samsung TV, owners would only have to say a simple voice command such as: “Hello, TV, on” to switch on the television. The same application can also be used to browse the Internet, which would allow consumers to connect with their families and loved ones via Skype.
Other partnerships include a deal with Panasonic for the same kind of software for their products, a voice to text transcription service for T-Mobile, plus a voice control and climate control system for the Ford Motor Company.
How long will it take for voice recognition to become standard on most televisions?
