Voice User Interfaces are on the rise. Consumer products like Google Home and Amazon’s Alexa are proof that voice is a medium that will be important in our future. Knowing how to design well for this growing medium will be an integral part of the growth of products and applications that will shape the ways we communicate with our devices.

Many of you are already Content Strategists, User Experience Designers/Researchers, and Information Architects - your core design skills are incredibly important to the Voice User Interface design process, and in fact, make you well poised to enter this field as it grows. I’ll cover how designing for voice pulls on the same core skills as other types of UX and Interaction design, as well as key differences to consider and build skills in. After this talk, you can expect to leave with an understanding of what VUI design is, how your skills translate to it, how the VUI design process works, and what you can learn more about to enter the field and design VUIs yourself.
