Nuance adds Siri-like Nina voice interface feature

updated 01:41 pm EDT, Wed July 25, 2012

Nuance to offer Nina voice recognition assistant for mobile product support later this summer

A new girl is aiming to steal some of Apple's Siri voice assistant fame and her name is Nina. Nuance, the company behind other speech recognition technologies such as Dragon TV and Dragon Drive, brought out Nina, though she will cater to a different user base than Siri and Samsung's S Voice or Google Now in Jelly Bean. It will be offered to companies who wish to automate mobile product support rather than allow setting appointments in their calendars or composing e-mails or text messages.

The business-oriented feature should be cross-platform compatible, as the video demo below shows both Android and iOS devices. Nuance speech recognition is used by Apple for Siri, so the outfit has plenty of credit and experience going for it.

Nina is said to arrive sometime this summer, though more details aren't yet being revealed.

    Shoulda called her Nuala - nice Irish-Gaelic girl's name, and closer to Nuance...
