Voice as a mode of human-computer interaction has been the next big thing for decades. In the meantime we’ve seen GUIs, and touch screens both come to prominence.
But just as voice seemed an evolutionary dead end, along came Alexa (and Google Assistant, and Siri, and Cortana).
In this presentation from Design ’18, Darla Sharpe, a voice designer on Google Assistant, and formerly at Alexa, talked about talk about the ins and outs of designing for an eyes-free experience. What is voice design? What does it look like? Why is it important? What happens when you do it well? And what happens when it’s not designed at all.
