This week, Catherine and our UX community discussed the following subjects, which you can read through on the Twitter Moment below.

  1. Are there good or bad practices in the design of Voice UIs? How are they different from the design of standard interfaces?
  2. As communication changes from one language to another but also from one culture to another, is it really possible to create universal voice systems? (ex: Alexa, Google Home)
  3. Do you believe that VUIs are relevant to all businesses or only for the technology sector?



Every week, we have a new guest host, sharing their knowledge and experience about a particular UX topic. If you want to guest host (or know anyone who’d love to) give us a shout out on Twitter @betterUX_
