Nuance Brings Voice Recognition to TeleNav
Nuance Communications today announced that TeleNav has selected Nuance Mobile to speech-enable its mobile device-based navigation service. Using the Nuance Mobile Speech Platform on select devices, TeleNav now provides the ability to enter destinations for driving directions and business category searches by voice, so that drivers no longer need to type a destination on their cell phones.

“We have worked with Nuance since the launch of the Nuance Mobile Speech Platform last year to determine the best application of speech technologies to improve the ease of use of our market leading navigation solutions,” said Hassan S. Wahla, senior director, business development, TeleNav.

“Nuance offers not only the industry’s leading technology, but also a proven history of delivering speech-enabled navigation services that improve the overall user experience. We believe the speech interface offers us a clear differentiation in the marketplace and will enhance our relationships with carriers as increased use of our service drives higher ARPU.”
