Are you Ready for Voice Search?

Purna started out her presentation by recounting a memory in her life when she was in a motorcycle accident. She fell off the motorcycle and badly injured her hands. At this point, it was nearly impossible to use her hands. Using her phone was far too difficult, so instead, she started using the voice command function on her phone. While voice search wasn’t commonly used before the injury, it was a very helpful resource when hands weren’t available. The experience of using voice search on a phone, led Purna to explore the growth and potential of voice search in the future.
