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.

Voice User Interfaces (Voice UIs) were supposed to change all of this because they are fast, flexible, and enable complex inputs with nearly zero effort. 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.

What is the goal of a UI? Typically, it is to help the user fulfill their intent efficiently and consistently. However, it can be hard to put the right information and controls in front of every user to meet their exact need at a given moment with a standard visual interface. However, we now have the technology to move from Designer-Constrained experiences to User-Driven experiences by leveraging Voice UIs as a Feature of our experiences.
