The groundbreaking application comes alive through its built-in voice user interface (VUI) and provides audiences with a hands-free way to interact with screens.
VUI represents an evolution in audience interaction, according to Visix president and CEO Sean Matthews. Visix is using VUI to further improve the user experience by offering multi-modal interactions with screens showing any type of content.
“The VUI uses speech recognition to understand spoken commands and questions, and will be familiar to any consumer who uses VUI platforms such as Alexa, Siri and Google assistant,“ said Matthews.
“This unlocks tremendous opportunity to drive stronger engagement in businesses, on campuses, and within public spaces, while making the search-and-return process more convenient and efficient.”
VUI is especially ideal in wayfinding applications, where voice instructions quickly return visible maps, paths and directories on demand.
The design integrates traditional wayfinding touch options and ADA controls, adding value for customers and consumers alike. VUI can assist with ADA guidelines by providing interaction options for the visually impaired. Visix also sees value for healthcare clients, where voice interaction in hospitals and medical centers can reduce the transmission of germs.
Visix has won over 90 awards for digital signage and wayfinding designs, and offers a full range of consulting and creative services to help their clients communicate better.
