Alexa Skill Design & VUI Design

Voice-controlled systems such as Amazon Alexa are the key to successful and modern man-machine communication. The tonal, vocal and dialogical quality of voice apps leads to successful voice assistance - "eyes and hands free".

Definition: Voice Apps & Voice Assistance

Voice apps (or "skills") are voice-controlled capabilities that allow you to add new features to your smart speakers, enhance and personalise them. The device becomes a voice assistant with which users communicate purely by voice - "eyes and hands free".

 

Although the right sound design is indispensable as an orientation aid in such digital environments, an aesthetic and at the same time functional sound design is far too often ignored. For example, the familiar Amazon Alexa voice is usually used and there is a lack of sound staging.

Successful implementation

The comevis Alexa Skill

Experience an audibly different Skill design in the following video or with your own Alexa! The comevis Alexa-Skill includes a sound journey, information on sound ecology and the latest podcast,

 

It is characterised by an individually applicable, case-specific voice and optimised in terms of sound down to the finest detail through highly functional sound design.

The key elements of success: sound, voice & dialogue

The comevis Voice App design combines corporate voices, corporate sounds and user-friendly dialogue guidance, making brand identity a tangible experience. This opens up completely new dialogue possibilities that make the operation of the technical system more pleasant and intuitive.

 

This type of audio/voice app design generates maximum brand recall, offers an audible experience and takes the user by the hand - because without the visual coupling, such as with menus in a smartphone app, the necessary orientation is otherwise lacking.

 

In the context of voice shopping, the user can be led more quickly to the conclusion of a purchase by transforming the pain points of an acoustically unsystematically designed customer journey into sonorous gain points. The result: the generation of higher sales - simply through an acoustically optimised user guidance.
