Dragon Drive! makes it easier to pay attention to the road while also keeping up with text messages, emails, GPS and keeping a constant mix of music playing during the ride.

The amount of accidents caused from distracted driving, especially when people are looking at their cell phone rather than the road ahead, have increased with the abundance of digital devices that people carry around every day. While many cars offer Bluetooth integration to provide hands-free access to electronic devices, they do not allow for complete voice control over functions like messaging and GPS input.

Nuance's system, however, can read out messages, emails and news while also being able to send messages, change the song playing in the car or provide navigation -- all without requiring the driver to take their hands off the wheel.
