voicebot interview with derrick fountain
I was recently interviewed by Voicebot.ai about the work that my team has been doing in launching Alexa skills and Google Assistant apps, one of which won the Actions on Google Developer Challenge in two categories. The apps all have high production quality with professional voice recordings and are multi-modal, supporting both voice and text.
In the interview, I offer insight into my start in audio publishing in 2004, the move to voice in 2007, and in 2017 my shift to voice assistants. I also share my global perspective on voice technology and how voice assistants are being used today in the Middle East.
