Apple Likely To Announce Nuance Partnership At WWDC

Posted May 9, 2011

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is rumored to already be testing out Nuance’s voice-recognition technology through the North Carolina data center. The partnership is expected to be announced at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next month. By running Nuance’s technology in their own data servers, Apple will be able to integrate voice-recognition into iOS 5 and they will not need to work with third-party servers. Yesterday I reported about how Apple was in some form of discussion with Nuance about an acquisition or a partnership. [TechCrunch]
