Back at this year’s eventful CES, Nuance announced it was launching a platform to bring voice recognition services to connected TVs, among other devices. Now, just a few months later, the communications outfit’s taking credit for the voice features packed inside Sammy’s 2012 Smart TVs. Essentially, this means those speaking commands used to control the Smart Hub, applications like Skype and even web surfing are all powered by Nuance’s Dragon technology. The move itself isn’t a surprising one, given Nuance’s credibility within the industry. So, now you know who’s making it all happen the next time you’re telling that ES8000 what to do.
