This past Monday, Nuance’s Dragon Drive! was chosen as a Consumer Electronics Association Innovation Award Honoree! Dragon Drive! is Nuance’s automotive-grade natural-language voice platform for the connected car, enabling auto OEMs and suppliers to deliver eyes – and hands – free message dictation and direct access to content, music, and navigation services.

The CEA recognized that more than ever, voice is a core aspect of the user interface for many devices – mobile phones, mobile personal assistant apps, TVs, as well as connected cars – because it provides users with a quick and intuitive way to directly access whatever they want.

Dragon Drive! will be honored at the Innovation Design and Engineering Awards Showcase at the 2013 International CES.  If you’ll be there, be sure to check it out!
