    Four months after introducing its Dragon TV voice recognition solution, Nuance (NUAN) says the software will be built into Samsung's high-end Smart TV line. The arrival of an Apple TV set would likely be a positive for Nuance, given expectations an Apple set will contain Siri, which is based on Nuance's technology.

    Nuance Communications (NUAN +1.7%) begins to claw back after shares swooned 13% Friday on missing FQ1 expectations. The voice-recognition software maker still reported growing sales and is an integral part of Apple's iPhone 4S killer app Siri; "it will be worth watching to see if investors have forgotten why they were interested in NUAN in the first place," David Penn writes.

    Nuance (NUAN -13.4%), whose shares had nearly doubled since August, is off sharply after its FQ1 report (I, II) raises fears that Apple's Siri may not be as profitable as hoped. Wedbush (Underperform) notes Nuance's top-line miss occurred in spite of the acquisition of Vlingo. Needham (Buy), however, is optimistic attempts by phone vendors to catch up to Siri will drive demand for Nuance's software. (transcript)
