Figures and Tables from this paper

Consumer Voice Interface Patterns
In the last years, a pattern language for designing voice applications and documenting the aforementioned design tensions and common practices was began, focusing on more complex issues such as authentication and consumer appliances interfaces.
Speech augmented multitouch interaction patterns
This paper introduces design patterns which support developers in exploiting the possibilities of combined voice and touch interaction for newly developed systems, so that interaction with these systems becomes more natural for the respective end users.
Context aware voice user interfaces for workflow support: voice based support for mobile workers
This thesis analyses the challenges of audio based interfaces with respect to the humans cognitive capabilities and shows a possible solution using audio design patterns.
Voice Portals Solution for Medical Consultations Appointment
This document describes the work done, develop a system of voice response, enabling patients to a particular health institution and on this specific case of Social Services Medical Assistance (SAMS), make appointments, using the phone (or mobile) or any application of Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP), through voice, or using the keyboard of these devices or applications.
I tell you something
A pattern language is introduced to design the system output in spoken dialog systems to ensure a good user experience in voice based systems.
A pattern language for error management in voice user interfaces
Successful error handling methods can make even applications with poor recognition accuracy more successful, and poorly constructed error handling may bring unwanted complexity to the system and cause new errors and annoyances.
What Can I Say?: Effects of Discoverability in VUIs on Task Performance and User Experience
While no significant differences were found between the strategies, a majority of the participants highlighted their preference for the 'What Can I Say?' strategy if they were to use the VUI more frequently, suggesting designers should consider the use of a discoverability strategy in the design of VUIs.
Voice enabling mobile applications with UIVoice
This paper presents UIVoice, through which voice assistants (that heavily utilize the cloud) to dynamically interact with mobile applications running in the edge, and presents a framework that can be used by third party developers to easily create Voice User Interfaces on top of existing applications.
On using Conversational Interfaces to Improve the Accessibility of a University Campus
Results show that conversational interfaces are highly appreciated by most of the participants and confirm that such interfaces might improve the daily experience of users within a university campus.
Talking to Linked Data: Comparing voice interfaces for general-purpose data
Results show that there is no difference in speed, error rate and usability between the two voice interfaces, which means it does not matter if normal web data or Linked Data is used, both voice interfaces are functioning efficiently.


Audio Navigation Patterns
A first set of patterns integrating many guidelines and solution approaches developed during the past 15 years of Voice User Interface (VUI) designs are introduced.
Curing the menu blues in touch-tone voice interfaces
Results obtained from thousands of live calls to a commercial customer service center show that callers route themselves more effectively using the long menu, which reduces the number of menu layers required, thus reducing the need to navigate through multiple menu layers, one of the most severe usability problems of existing touch-tone interfaces.
Voice User Interface Design
The voice user interface design is one book that the authors really recommend you to read, to get more solutions in solving this problem.
Robust Speech Recognition in Embedded Systems and PC Applications
This work discusses the development of Environment-Independent/Adaptive Speech Recognition from Cost Sensitive Embedded Applications to PC-Based Systems, and the future Outlook for Robust ASR.
Revenue Opportunities in the Voice Enabled Web
The BOSS model, (Business Opportunities in Speech Systems) is proposed, which combines the vcommerce infrastructure model presented with the various revenue models introduced, presenting a picture of where in the voice enabled web revenue opportunities exist.
A Pattern Language - Towns, Buildings, Construction
This book will enable a person to make a design for almost any kind of building, or any part of the built environment, which will replace existing ideas and practices entirely.
