Nuance (NUAN +4.5%) jumps after introducing Nina, a virtual assistant solution for iOS and Android customer support apps. Nina uses a combo of Nuance's voice recognition (VR), text-to-speech, and voice ID tech, and has already picked up financial services firm USAA as a customer. Nuance has been quickly fleshing out its mobile portfolio: other solutions include Swype, Vlingo, a developer program for its Dragon VR software, and the VR tech behind Apple's Siri.
