More than words: Designing and building voice interfaces
It takes more than words to design and build an effective voice interface. In this talk, Léonie will explore voice character and design, conversational user experience, APIs for generating synthetic speech in the browser (and in the cloud), techniques for manipulating voice output, and yes, the importance of choosing the right words – all with examples to bring it all to life!
