Voice User Interface (VUI) Design
WE SPECIALISE IN VUI/VUX
Crafting intuitive and frictionless voice experiences.
Our voice user interface designers aim to move from the simplistic realm of voice to one that is truly intelligent and conversational. In doing so, our team thinks about the entire conversation at hand and the relevant objectives of the application. Furthermore, our team conducts in-depth user research in order to understand the possible nuances of conversation while creating designs and writing up interactions between your technology and the user.
Our VUI team have a deep understanding of the technology and data at hand while making a conscious effort to avoid friction between the user and your business. Beyond voice assistants, our VUI designers are imperative to the creation and development of text chatbots in order to make the experience as seamless and intuitive as possible. Therefore, our designers are imperative from the conceptual stage of your project to its final execution.
What is VUI?
VUI is an acronym for voice user interface. These interfaces allow you to interact with an application or technology through speech without the need for typing or any other form of interaction. Developing an Alexa Skill Application without considering your VUI is like developing a mobile app without any design or UI experience.
Why is it important?
VUI designers play a critical role in the conception and development of your application. Our designers delve deep into the conversational design of your technology and know how to effectively leverage the nuances of conversation to achieve your business objectives. Furthermore, with more and more digital assistants utilising visual capabilities in tandem to voice, it is imperative to have a VUI designer on hand to harmonise the two mediums.
What does the process involve?
One of the best ways to begin the design process is to create a sample dialogue of how a specific user in a specific circumstance will interact with your technology in order to achieve an action or goal. However, relying on this alone creates an unnatural and limited experience. Therefore, the VUI process involves a client-agency strategy session, in-depth user research, sample dialogues, visual mock-ups of the flows of conversation, prototyping and intensive testing.
How long does it take?
Our design timeline depends on the size of your project, the nuances of the conversation at hand and the complexity of the tasks. It could take anywhere between 3-12 weeks to complete a VUI deliverable to a client.
How much does it cost?
The cost of a project depends on the size and complexity of your application. Our costs for designing an effective voice user interface ranges between £10,000 – £150,000 GBP.
