Voice user interfaces (VUI) have crawled from being simple interactive voice responses to being a new entity in our homes and everyday life. They have crossed over from assistive technologies for the visually impaired to a mainstream technology being used in homes and on our mobile devices. VUIs are not just commands anymore but are designed to empathetically respond to our queries and be engaged in a conversation with us. This presentation looks into the development, challenges, concerns and design of voice user interfaces and how they can be used in unison with other input/output mechanisms to be multimodal in nature.
