Nuance Pinpoints Enterprise Voice Search
Nuance Communications has introduced the virtual assistant Nina that adds speech-based services to iOS and Android enterprise applications. About a dozen companies have integrated the technology into enterprise apps, which they mostly use for online customer service. Nuance provides speech recognition for Siri, but the company plans to leave consumer products to Apple. The techology offers developers a software developer kit (SDK) and a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) to integrate verbal conversational capabilities into apps.
