And yet we still have to buy into the viability of voice as an interface.

The core advantage of voice as an interface isn’t speed. It’s familiarity.

Yes, tapping a few buttons is often faster than speaking a few words, waiting for the device to recognise them and respond correctly. However, you first need to figure out which buttons to press. There’s a learning curve.

Voice interfaces have little to no learning curve because communication through speech is natural and familiar to humans. That’s what makes it so exciting.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
