UX Design Resources | Tools for Voice & Conversation Design

Voice User Experience and Conversational Design are two of the fields I have found especially interesting while learning about UX Design. They have often been described as the next frontier in user experience design and leave ample space for experimentation. Before talking about tools and tricks, let’s talk about how these two areas are different.

Voice UI Design

Voice interface design uses speech recognition to allow users to engage with technology using voice commands. As the world becomes increasingly fast-paced and information-dense, voice technologies are challenging the dominance of the graphical user interface and can make the experience much smoother.

Conversation Design

Conversation Design is the process of designing a natural, two-way interaction between a user and a system, via voice or text, based on the principles of human to human conversation. (Definition via Voxgen)

From my research and talking to professionals working in this area, below are some of the tools and resources I have started compiling to help learn about this area myself.
