If you’re planning to overhaul your website in 2019 there are a number of things you need to consider beyond the design of your site, although this is, of course, important.
One of them is how your site will work with voice interfaces. A recent article by DesignModo named this as one of the top web design trends of the coming year and when you stop to think about it, it makes perfect sense.
More and more people are embracing smart devices, and these provide a voice interface. That means that any website you have for your business not only has to be discover-able for people browsing the internet, but also machines that will provide responses through smart devices.
“You’ll need to start thinking about the ways your designs interact with these devices and how to create user experiences that fit the way people want to use websites,” the news provider stated.
Depending on the kind of business you have and the products or services you offer, you may want to employ bespoke software in Leeds to help enhance your site.
One of the most important things when it comes to voice interfaces is the written content. This is how a machine, such as Siri or Alexa, will decide what’s relevant to the search they’ve been given.
Alongside this, you should also consider whether voice recognition technology could be useful to your business too.
Earlier this month, the Disruptive Competition Project reported that voice interfaces were a key theme at CES 2019, noting that IBM was among the large businesses at the event to highlight the continued use of voice interfaces across a wider number of devices and areas of our lives.
