BURLINGTON, Mass. (Business Wire) -- Nuance Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that its intuitive voice capabilities power the HTC Car application on the new HTC One smartphone. Now, people can take command of their HTC One while minimizing distraction behind the wheel in more than 20 languages.

HTC Car integrates Nuance's powerful voice recognition capabilities to give people quick and direct access to people, local business information, navigation, music on the device, streaming content from TuneIn, and more. Further, hands-free command and control is available, including hands-free text messaging that lets people hear incoming text messages read aloud, and respond without having to manually or visually engage the device – keeping people connected behind the wheel in a safer, smarter way.

“HTC's global customers inspired the design and features of the new HTC One – they crave connectivity and access everywhere they are. HTC Car was designed to keep consumers connected to people, places and content in the most natural way we communicate – with our voice,” said Thomas Ho, director, product division, HTC.

“Mobile devices are an extension of ourselves, so it's imperative that they deliver the information and content we demand when we want it,” said Michael Thompson, executive vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. “HTC Car's voice capabilities eliminate the barriers to a more intelligent and intuitive mobile experience that's possible anywhere, any time.”
