Intel to enable touch and voice computer control
Voice recognition will play a big part in the way we interact with the Ultrabooks to be released this year.
To enable this experience Intel has partnered with Nuance Communications – creator of voice recognition software Dragon – so the user can launch applications, play media, check and update social media along with their email and calendar with their voice.
Intel and Dragon has already released a developer kit to help app developers create new Ultrabook experiences.
On the touchscreen side, Intel’s processors will power new touch concepts either through the screen or with touchpads bellows the keyboard or on the laptop’s lid.
The touch pad on the lid will allow users to still interact with the Ultrabook even when it’s closed.
At their press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show, Intel announced there are more than 75 Intel-powered Ultrabooks released in 2012.
