Voice interfaces like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are increasingly central to our information-seeking behaviors around critical topics like news, politics and health. Yet news and information delivered via voice assistants often fails to make use of the technology's unique capabilities, like two-way conversational interaction, non-verbal sounds, and branching narratives. Further, people using voice tech aren’t tethered to a screen, but interact with content while embedded in their homes, workplaces and environments. This workshop will focus on how to design voice experiences that go beyond the audio news flash and are truly voice first, conversational, and interactive: like an interactive audio graphic, or an immersive recipe, or a question and answer feature. This workshop will focus on two components: (1) a brainstorming/ideation process that focuses on the unique capabilities of voice interactions, (2) how to prototype voice interactions without programming using Voiceflow (a free tool). The format of the workshop will be a series individual design activities that participants will then share with each other in breakout groups in order to get peer feedback.
