TIME TO USE YOUR VOICE

Rapid advances in speech recognition and processing technologies, coupled with the advent of many new intelligent sensors and interfaces have helped voice interfaces gain acceptance in hundreds of millions of households worldwide.

With a Community of Practice, Reply is building a conduit to gather, concentrate and channel its UX and technical know-how, providing enterprise voice solutions to customers from various sectors.

YOU SAY WHAT?​

There is a huge gap between the human ability to speak, type, read and listen. While Anglophones can read an average of 238 words per minute (wpm), they are only about half as fast when listening. Therefore, caution is needed when writing speech dialogues.​

NO MORE MISUNDERSTANDINGS​

Voice-driven applications are only successful if:​

  • they have been designed according to best practices which are often radically different than those used in classical UX-Architecture;​

  • the use case for the application is relevant and adds value;​

  • they are properly placed within the customers‘ digital ecosystems, to enhance the entire spectrum of available touchpoints.​

LET’S TALK STRATEGY

How can the Reply Voice-First Strategy help your company take full advantage of the voice revolution?

First of all, what is the Voice-First Strategy?​


Whereas a “simple” digital assistant in the form of a chatbot or skill is an offering which is necessarily limited in scope and vision, the voice-first approach would allow for a holistic, top-down perspective of a customer’s entire digital landscape, embracing the next digital revolution, enhancing brand safety and dramatically boosting efficiency and customer satisfaction.​

What is Reply’s development approach?​


In an intensive workshop with a customer, Reply experts identify all possible enterprise touchpoints, applications, data pools and devices which play a role in their business processes. Then, coupled with the corporate tonality, we collaboratively visualize the entire voice-driven digital landscape.​

What is the advantage of having a Voice-First Strategy?​


In the future, many more business processes will be controlled with voice interfaces. Corporations which embrace this trend by implementing a global strategy – rather than a collection of single, unrelated solutions – will best profit from voice technologies.​

Is a Voice-First Strategy a purely technical approach?​


No, a Voice-First Strategy involves input from brand-driven design, marketing experts, conversational designers and programmers alike. To create an engaging voice experience, tonality is as important as sentiment analysis, for instance.​

LET’S TALK TECHNOLOGY

Smart Assistants, particularly VUIs and NLP, will be most relevant technologies for the next interface revolution as Voice Interface Recognition accuracy gets closer to Human levels.

Therefore, Reply leverages various technical approaches and methodologies to create comprehensive conversational experiences.

ASR​

Automatic Speech Recognition​

Automatic Speech Recognition is the interdisciplinary field of computational linguistics to develop methods for translating speech into machine language – in other words, breaking down the sound of our voices into binary language which can be digitally processed. ​

NLP​

Natural Language Processing​

Natural Language Processing is a field of computer science concerned with the interactions between computers and human languages, in particular how to program computers to process and analyze natural language data. NLP can refer to a range of tools, such as speech recognition, natural language recognition, and natural language generation.​

NLU / Sentiment Analysis​

Natural Language Understanding​

Natural Language Understanding is a subtopic of NLP that deals with comprehension. Furthermore, artificial intelligence and machine learning pattern recognition can be used for sentiment analysis to attempt to determine the tonality and meaning of spoken or written input. Natural language understanding can be applied to a lot of processes, such as categorizing text, gathering news, archiving individual pieces of text, and, on a larger scale, analyzing content.​
