By Anthony Silva, WBZ NewsRadio 1030 New England Business Editor

BOSTON (CBS) – It’s called Dragon Drive. Nuance Executive Vice President Michael Thompson refers to it as an automotive-grade hybrid connected speech platform that top-tier car-makers design right into the vehicles’ electronics.

He says Dragon Drive allows drivers to text-message, without taking their hands off the wheel, or their eyes off the road. Dragon Drive is being offered to car makers who will design the features right into the vehicle.
