Apple acquires speech recognition company Novauris

Apple has acquired automatic speech recognition company Novauris Technologies, TechCrunch reports. The acquisition reportedly occurred in 2013, and the Novauris team was already working on Siri as of last fall. Last year, it was reported that a formerly unknown “small team of notable names in speech technology” was working on Siri.

The founders of Novauris were “key members” at Dragon Systems, the company known for voice recognition software including Dragon NaturallySpeaking and Dragon Dictation. Novauris was developing patented automatic speech recognition technology with a large vocabulary that could access information stored locally or remotely. The terms of the deal are unknown.
