Rovi Corporation and Nuance Communications are collaborating to accelerate voice activated discovery and guidance products for cable service providers and consumer electronics manufacturers. Nuance has licensed and will integrate Rovi’s rich entertainment data with Dragon TV to enable TV manufacturers and providers of cable services to access Rovi-indexed content for TV shows, movies and cast and crew details by speaking.

Dragon TV is Nuance’s platform that delivers voice recognition capabilities for set-top boxes and connected TV devices.

Nuance and Rovi are additionally developing a new application combining Dragon TV with Rovi’s guide technology. As a result, users will be able to speak to change the channel, browse and search for content on live and On Demand TV programming. “Consumers love that today’s cable services and program guides offer so many options for shows, movies, content, information widgets and more. But without an easy way to access and discover that content, today’s digital living room experience is lost,” said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. “By integrating Rovi’s data as part of our Dragon TV platform, people will ultimately be able to lean back and speak to instantly find and discover the shows and content they want.”
