?️ Ralph Drewnowski @drewno_design - Senior User Experience Designer, Kainos

*Looking Under the Hood: Using Voice Enabled Technology for the Roadworthiness Tests*

As voice assistants become more reliable, they can meet more user needs. If designed mindfully, they can be a powerful assistive technology and bring the world to people with different accessibility needs. In a spirit of inclusive design Ralph will explain how voice UI might improve user experience. He will cover a bit of theory and a lot of practice.

Ralph is a user experience explorer and designer. He is passionate about inclusive design and building services accessible for everybody, regardless of their abilities. Having worked with governments in Poland and United Kingdom, he’s advocating for complex systems to work in favour of humans, not the other way round. He’s a fan of industrial revolution and steampunk.
