Event description

Description

Conversational interfaces are capturing huge mindshare yet there are nuances to creating a delightful experience. Trying to use the exact same style across different device styles like IoT, Smart Speakers, and Chatbots won't lead to an optimal experience.

Join us to learn how best to approach these different interaction modes and create your best user experience!

Talk vs. Text: Lessons learned on how designing for voice bots differs from chatbots

How do you decide whether your next bot should live on voice or text? Should you port an existing chatbot over to voice? What makes designing for voice different from chat? Pulling from experiences building voice and chat bots for brand partners, Dexter’s Angel Wong will discuss design considerations and best practices for crafting conversational experiences for each medium.

Bio: Angel Wong is a Technical Product Manager at Dexter (rundexter.com), a platform to easily create and manage conversational interactions. At Dexter, she has worked on experience design and custom bot development for brands, businesses, and agencies.
