As research on speech interfaces continues to grow in the field of HCI, there is a need to develop design guidelines that help solve usability and learnability issues that exist in hands-free speech interfaces. While several sets of established guidelines for GUIs exist, an equivalent set of principles for speech interfaces does not exist. This is critical as speech interfaces are so widely used in a mobile context, which in itself evolved with respect to design guidelines as the field matured… Expand
Revolution or Evolution? Speech Interaction and HCI Design Guidelines
TLDR
It is proposed here that recent speech engineering advances present an opportunity to revolutionize the design of voice interactions, and that the path toward revolutionary new ubiquitous conversational voice interactions must be based on several evolutionary steps that build VUI heuristics off existing GUI design principles.

The State of Speech in HCI: Trends, Themes and Challenges
TLDR
Through a review of 99 research papers, this work maps the trends, themes, findings and methods of empirical research on speech interfaces in the field of speech interfaces through the years. Expand
Tools to Support Voice User Interface Design
TLDR
This paper describes the currently completed research and how it guides the primary research goal of developing tools and resources to aid usability experts and designers in filling these design knowledge gaps for Voice User Interfaces. Expand
Usability Questionnaires to Evaluate Voice User Interfaces
TLDR
Nine questionnaires were used to evaluate the usability of voice-only and voice-added VUIs: AttrakDiff, ICF-US, MOS-X, SUISQ-R, SUS, SASSI, UEQ, PARADISE and USE, where the SUS questionnaire is the most commonly used. Expand
Voice Interaction for Training: Opportunities, Challenges, and Recommendations from HCI Perspective
TLDR
Examples of voice technology applications in several domains are provided, along with a set of recommendations for successful design, evaluation and use of voice interaction in training applications. Expand
Finding a New Voice: Transitioning Designers from GUI to VUI Design
TLDR
It is suggested that the “path of least resistance” to transitioning designers from GUI to VUI may be the adaptation of familiar resources and concepts to the VUI design space, instead of the imposition of novel VUI-specific heuristics on GUI-trained designers. Expand
“You, Move There!”: Investigating the Impact of Feedback on Voice Control in Virtual Environments
TLDR
It is found that the type of feedback given by agents is critical to user experience, and specifically auditory mechanisms are preferred, allowing users to engage with other modalities seamlessly during interaction. Expand
Designers characterize naturalness in voice user interfaces : their goals, practices, and challenges
TLDR
These interviews with 20 VUI designers identified 12 ways that designers characterize and approach naturalness in VUIs, and categorized these characteristics into three groupings based on the types of conversational context that each characteristic contributes to: Social, Transactional, and Core. Expand

TLDR
These interviews with 20 VUI designers identified 12 ways that designers characterize and approach naturalness in VUIs, and categorized these characteristics into three groupings based on the types of conversational context that each characteristic contributes to: Social, Transactional, and Core.

Reading Between the Guidelines: How Commercial Voice Assistant Guidelines Hinder Accessibility for Blind Users
TLDR
A qualitative document review of VAPA design guidelines published by top commercial vendors Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Apple and Alibaba found that guidelines have many commonalities that surface an underlying assumption that V APA interfaces should be modeled after human-human conversation. Expand
