During CES 2014, Nuance announced partnerships with many manufacturers of PCs and tablets to bring your Dragon Assistant technology for future devices, which may then rely on capabilities of continuous voice tracking. The software is designed to work with two personalities: American Female and British Butler. Initially, the intelligent voice assistant can navigate to Twitter and Facebook, tweets or post status updates, play music and do web searches and launch applications. The Dragon Assistant will require internet connection for almost all tasks and will provide users with a particular set of voice commands. In the future, the software can learn your preferences and frequently used commands.

The program will come built into Intel-based Atom and Core processors, including tablets, ultrabooks, laptops and all in one devices made by companies such as Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Asus and Toshiba devices.
