SynKloud accuses Nuance of infringing U.S. Patent No. RE 44,248, directed towards enhanced voice recognition technologies. The ‘248 patent is a reissue of U.S. 7,689,416. SynKloud asserts that certain of Nuance’s Dragon products infringe through allowing users to transfer voice model files between computers, enhancing the speech recognition accuracy in the destination computer. SynKloud first notified Nuance of the ‘248 patent in April of 2015, but Nuance continued to sell the accused Dragon products. SynKloud specifically pleads that neither it nor any predecessors in interest have made, sold or licensed any products covered by the ‘248 patent and thus requiring marking. SynKloud claims direct, induced and contributory infringement. Judge Saris has the case.
