Nuance speech engine to power QNX CAR platform

Nuance and QNX have announced that Nuance Voice Control for Automotive is powering the connected speech capabilities of the QNX CAR application platform. Drivers will be able to speak text messages and emails, enter navigation commands, and access the Web for sports, news, traffic, and more, powered by Nuance’s connected speech capabilities working seamlessly with the QNX CAR platform.

Nuance Voice Control Automotive leverages the same speech technology found in the successful Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search Apps for iPhone to provide a safer connected car experience that allows drivers to say a variety of spoken commands. In fact, it’s the industry’s first solution to provide one-button, seamless access to all services leveraging Nuance’s advancements in natural language understanding and mobile speech applications.

The version of the QNX CAR application platform featuring Nuance Voice Control Automotive’s innovative speech capabilities is scheduled for release to auto manufacturers and suppliers in April 2010.
