Voice User


Virtual assistants have become more popular in recent years since Siri, Cortana, Hey Google, Amazon Alexa, and Bixby became common products among consumers. Who is behind these virtual helpers? Not only developers, but also content and Voice User Interface designers (VUI) as well as UX writers created these audio technologies. 

Although some of these virtual assistants have become obsolete  from the market, they motivated new ways for storytelling, and now are used in different areas such as healthcare, traveling, browsing locations, weather forecast, and entertainment. Every search starts with a simple invoking word: weather, time, reminder, recipe, music, games, and so on. Later,tthe results will be delivered in the form of a “Polly voice (synthetic sound)”. 

As a content designer, I found  new ways to design interactive content using Text To Speech (TTS) technology as a tool for creating synthetic voices to be virtual assistants. Sometimes I mix polly voices and pre-recorded audio from real people to use in my audio apps, which Amazon Alexa calls, “Skills”.

The content I like to create targets the Hispanic culture through different areas with one common starting point: Go to iInteract,  have fun, and learn something.
