Here you can check out a video demonstration of the Nuance powered voice software which will be on Ultrabooks in the very near future.
A very short time ago Intel revealed that they had partnered with Nuance to bring Siri-like voice search and voice control to Ultrabooks of the future. This feature is all set to appear in practically all 2013 Ultrabooks as well as in Q4 2012, and searching online, I have found a high quality video demonstration showing exactly what it can do for all of you eager readers out there.
The video was filmed at this years IDF conference, and the developer on stage asks the Dell XPS branded Ultrabook to perform a couple of tasks. Those tasks include playing music, searching Amazon for ‘sunglasses’ amongst other things, of which are genuinely carried out in real life. The system is activated by saying ‘Hello Dragon’ and from the video we have embedded below, I think you will agree that this voice recognition is very good indeed.
Nuance’s software currently powers Apple’s Siri, although not many people know that directly. The companies best known products are Dragon NaturallySpeaking for the PC and Dragon Dictation for the Mac. All in all, we think it is pretty cool that Ultrabooks will be the first machines to feature direct advanced voice search and control capabilities, especially at this level.
