Giving voice to your voice designs (en)
– with Cheryl Platz

Cheryl Platz

A unique opportunity to learn some basics about designing for voice interaction.

Designing for voice interaction can be an intimidating concept for a generation of designers trained primarily in visual principles and patterns. But there’s a greater need for voice designers than there are folks experienced in voice design. 

How do you know whether a leap into this emerging specialty may be just the right thing for your career? Odds are, your existing skills and creativity can be reframed to adapt to this new technology with the addition of some domain specific guidelines and creative lenses.

Who is the workshop for?

The workshop with Cheryl Platz is for designers who wish to learn about the logics in the voice user interface.


A brief history of voice user interface technology.

SECTION 2: LANGUAGE BEHIND NATURAL LANGUAGE A glossary of voice user interface design, including detailed definitions of key concepts specific to VUI. We dive deeper into the various stages of audio processing that translate a customer's speech into a signal the designer can work with.

SECTION 3: SITUATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS We walk through a number of the constraints and design pivots commonly applied to voice designs, like the importance of acoustic uniqueness and the appropriate use of grammars vs. natural language systems.

SECTION 4: BASIC GUIDELINES FOR SUCCESSFUL VOICE DESIGN We walk through seven guidelines for voice design in detail: important considerations like reincorporation, brevity and earcons along with process guidelines like audio storyboarding.

SECTION 5: DELIVERING A VOICE DESIGN The end-to-end design process is transformed from a visually-focused process to an IA and contentfocused process. New deliverables are proposed as we walk through a sample skill and see the deliverables created step-by-step.

SECTION 6: INTRO TO SKILLS We deconstruct the information architecture of skills on Alexa, Google, and Cortana - so that designers that wish to build their solutions can translate the designs. (We do not cover coding in this workshop).
