Nuance confirms its voice technology is behind Apple's Siri - Page 2

And like I stated, the real issue of Siri's usability and performance is based on the intelligence of the digital personal assistant, not the speech-to-text engine, so if they do that I'd expect that to happen well after Siri is well out of Beta and considerably more robust and more flawless.

No. I only meant they have had sufficient time to capture speech samples on which to base speech recognition algorithms.

Coulda sworn we already knew this. Anyway, I assumed it: Siri has problems with the same words that Nuance's other products do, in my experience. Google Now has problems, too, but with different words.

Probably just a rumour before and now public confirmation:

Indeed, it is a legacy of work begun in the 70s.  And it's a sad history, too.... The inventors of the amazing technology, Mr. & Mrs. Baker, got swindled and lost control over their own IP.  Sadly, most recent court decisions have sided with the big Wall St. bankers.
