The User Interface experience for the web and mobile has changed very little in the past decade. We are still clicking and typing, tapping and swiping. Users can only do what a designer decides to make available. And, they are forced into a specific sequence of steps to accomplish any task.

It has not happened to date because Voice Assistants were thrust upon us as the one and only Voice UI. It is not the right model for many websites and mobile apps. However, there is a better model for Voice UIs.
