CES 2012: First Look at Dragon TV Nuance

0:58 /

Sharon Vaknin takes a peek at voice recognition software for TVs.

Hey guys. It's Sharon Vaknin for CNET.com. I'm here at Digital Experience for CES 2012, taking a first look at Dragon TV by Nuance. Now last year, TV's were all about 3D but this year we're seeing a lot of voice recognition. So what Nuance brings is voice command technology allowing you to do things like say a channel number, a movie name, a TV show or even the name of a channel. Also integrated is social networking like Twitter, Facebook and Skype. The technology uses natural speaking, so you can say something, what's on Bravo tonight at 9 p.m. or what time is Ellen on? The technology is available to be integrated into a variety of TV brands but Nuance isn't releasing any specific details just yet. For CNET.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin at CES 2012.
