The recent haircut makes this call easier. In the near future, computing is going mobil. But the weakness of mobil is the weakness in the keyboard/mouse solution. Touch screens go only so far, but what better method than to just talk to our devices? This is accentuated by trends in the on-line interactive area where natural language recognition is becoming more important. Further development in the image processing area is being driven by robotics, where scene evaluation is in its infancy. NUAN has a lot of work ahead.

I agree with your thoughts. I have pasted my reply to another post in the forum.

"Speech or VR is simply another tool for communicative interaction, i.e. the pencil, the smoke signal, Morse code, signal flags, type writers, rotary phones, the mail, etc. etc. as such, it has it's limits. The quickest and possibly most accurate form of communication is line of sight ( As a I type these words I can see, check accuracy, edit and so on, in milliseconds) VR is no faster or accurate to the common person than line of sight.

The company, NUAN, has to continue to be vigilant and ready to purchase other innovators patents just to protect their future and their relevancy. This ' Speech technology', your words, takes a back seat to the accuracy of visual conformation.

If Nuance can become the next Java, Ms-DOS, Dolby, ink versus graphite technology that is innocuous to the user, then the innovators will create the value of VR, otherwise the innovators are the competition and Nuance will have to acquire every side street off the the road to the future. They do not have a lock on VR. "
