Nuance Voice Control Takes Over the New T-Mobile myTouch Slide
May 4, 2010 7:00 AM –
The T-Mobile myTouch Slide Android phone launches in June featuring a Genius Button to launch Nuance’s Voice Control. With one touch users will have voice access to control the phone and its features including many of the mobile applications they use most; making calls, sending emails and text messages, searching the Web, finding businesses and directions, and much more. For example, the embedded technology will allow you to say, “Send Text to John Smith. I’ve got tickets to the Dodgers game tonight, you in?”. Versus launching messaging app » typing John’s name » typing text message » hitting Send. Convenient!
The T-Mobile myTouch Slide will also have Dragon Dictation embedded which can be used in any text field in assumption as a replacement for Google’s native Voice-to-Text engine found on Android 2.1+ software. This will allow you to easily and quickly speak your text up to five times faster in any text field, regardless of whether it’s an email, text message, calendar, Twitter application or Web browser. Dragon Dictation has been proven for accuracy in voice-to-text on iPhones and will now be embedded on T-Mobile’s third release of the myTouch at no additional charge or recurring fee.
