Derrick Fountain speaking to an audience in Istanbul, Turkey discussing the rise of voice apps.

In 2017, I gave a keynote at UX Istanbul, in which I shared insights and context on the future of the user interface and the birth of the spoken web. This topic looked beyond glass rectangles and explored interaction design for voice-based applications.

The Spoken Web is a topic that I have been researching and developing for over 10 years as a vision for the future of how people would interact with products and services through voice.

In this talk, I also shared insights and case studies from voice-based applications developed over the years and also explore how in my current professional role at TRT World, I'm build voice into its digital products.

Key Takeaways

  • An understanding of the “Spoken Web” and the evolution and role of voice in digital products.
  • Tools and techniques for designing voice-based interactions.
  • Case studies and real-world lessons learned from developing voice applications in the US, Africa, and Turkey.
