CES 2014: Intel, Nuance bring speech commands to PCs

Intel and Nuance Communications have teamed up to ensure that Nuance's Dragon Assistant speech command technology is included in the latest PCs from Acer, Dell, Lenovo and HP.
The technology allows computer users to tweet, play music, write documents and more using voice commands.

PCs and tablets running on Intel Core and Atom processors will have the software included. Dragon Assistant will be constantly running in the background, adds Nuance.

"Our objective working with Intel was to bring the PC into the era that tablets have been enjoying with the launch of [Apple's] Siri over the past few years," Matt Revis, the vice president and general manager of Dragon Devices for Nuance Communications said.

The latest Dragon Assistant is available starting now on Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo 2-in-1s, tablets, Ultrabooks, notebooks, and AIO devices and it will reach Asus and Toshiba in the coming months.
