Voice User Interface (VUI) has more and more effect in our daily lives. VUI designers should create a voice user interface that can provide a better user experience.
Language is a communication method unique to human beings. We are now in the era of rapid development of artificial intelligence(AI) and will inevitably liberate our hands through the use of Voice User Interface (VUI). Voice User Interface is a major trend in 2018 and has become a part of our daily lives. VUI is used in smartphones, smarthomes, smart TVs, and a range of other products. All over the world, people are getting used to talking to Siri, Google Assistant, Cortana, or Bixby. With the rapid development in VUI, designers need to create a product that provides superior user experience. That is, if they want to get ahead of the competition.
“A voice-user interface (VUI) makes human interaction with computers possible through a voice/speech platform in order to initiate an automated service or process.” VUI design focuses on the process of interaction design for the user and the voice application system. VUI is a user-facing interface, so it is vital that it meets the needs of the user.
VUI will become your personal assistant. The development of new technologies will make it easier for designers and developers to provide tailored digital experiences. VUI will not only be your personal assistant, understand your current needs, but it will also predict your future needs. It involves all aspects of your life, even in areas you can’t imagine.
The content of the GUI is mainly graphics and text, while the content of the VUI is mainly text. People interact with the GUI through clicks and gestures, while people interact with the VUI through dialogues. The VUI must understand what people are saying, then give the correct response.
„The voice device must understand the user’s main needs accurately and provide answers quickly.“
Designing conversations is like designing an information architecture: ultimately we want to help people achieve an end task and find what they’re looking for.
