About this Case Study

A new frontier is opening up in UX design: voice! Products like Amazon's Echo and Google Home offer designers a new place to play, and new skills to learn. If GUI design is 80% design and 20% testing, VUI is 20% design and 80% testing. In this short introduction, you’ll learn about the design process and learn some fundamental principles. You'll see just how different the design methods are, and how to conduct 'Wizard of Oz' testing.
