    Sarah Andrew Wilson – Three Lessons Learned: Creating Voice Experiences for Children.

    Designing voice experiences for children can be a fun and often deeply rewarding process. However, there are a few common missteps developers make in creating experiences specifically for children. In today’s talk, I’ll discuss three lessons we’ve learned at Matchbox.io when creating “Kids Quiz” and other popular children’s voice applications. Specifically, I’ll look at our trials and errors in making content age-appropriate, constructing a clean design, and handling unexpected (and often hilarious) errors.

    Caitlin Gutekunst - From silly stories to tangible toys - where kids’ voice-first interactions will go in the future.

    Though not the primary target user of most voice interactions, kids are easily adopting this new medium and even driving increased usage in the home. In this presentation, I will share learnings from Creativity’s history of designing some of the most beloved voice-first interactions for kids, from our first voice experience released in 2017 to the first-of-their-kind voice-powered toys launched this fall. I’ll also discuss the challenges around discoverability and marketing kid-targeted voice experiences, and how to navigate around them.

    Matt Hammersley – Leveraging Voice to Promote Family Engagement.

    One of the unique things about voice is the ability to have shared experiences. Unlike apps, which are designed for a “personal” device, voice opens the door to reimagine new experiences that engage families together. I’ll go through specific differences in voice technology, content design, and experience flow that we’ve found successful when building for the family as a whole...and some not so successful.

    Isabel Suttner - How to create voice-centered characters and immersive stories for kids?

    Interactive audio content design is a core challenge in the development of voice experiences. Especially in the area of kids entertainment, identification with characters, immersion in the story and intuitive interactions are key success factors. Based on Seven.One Entertainments' learnings with “Maxi’s Zeitreisen”, one of the most popular kids skills in Germany, Isabel will guide you through key aspects to consider when creating interactive content for voice applications. Key aspects she will highlight are a compelling character design, different content activity modes within an application and communication patterns as an orientation aid.
