JT - The Chef is a voice vegan food cooking app that also gives a visual feedback over Amazon’s Echo and Google’s Nest devices.
It makes sense to combine voice interface with visual feedback, enabling you to be hands-free. Allowing the user freedom yet interacting with the cooking voice interface.
While your hands are busy you can ask for a recipe without the need to wash your hands before you go to your book or electronical device.
I designed an application that gives user feedback over visual and voice. The user is able to communicate over voice with the program. I kept the information short for every prompt so the user will not be overwhelmed.
Especially while the user is checking the ingredients or is listening to the recipe instructions during food preparation. Additionally, the user can always check the screen for the next step.
By voice the user is able to navigate forwards, backwards or jump back to the main menu without using their hands.
A new technical approach opens doors to other opportunities. The goal of smart homes is to make the user’s life easier.
By choosing your dinner in the morning the app is ordering all ingredients for later that evening, to be delivered at home or the user can put them on the grocery list by ordering via the voice assistant.
These app functions could be interesting for supermarkets implementing home delivery or want to offer the opportunity to customers by sending them a grocery list to pick up later, bypassing check-out times.
Before developing the prototype it was important to understand how a user might think. How the user might use the app? In which situations? An understanding of this is important to realize how the tone of voice should be.
By building the first user flows the app’s structure became clear. What kind of menus are needed? How to navigate to and through them? Which menu is very important? How to return to these menus? Reaching a specific menu via voice command?
There are already cooking voice apps on the market. Like most things that exist already, but do they fit to me? Designers are working every day to create products that are better for each different user and create a business idea or articulate it in a better way. Thus, here we are. JT - The Chef
After having a direction for the tone of voice. I wrote the voice script for each menu. As the user for visual devices almost always find their way through a program by looking for buttons or menus, it is just not possible with voice applications. But keeping in mind not to overload the user with information that might well be forgotten before spelling out any decision.
What the user might say?
How the user knows what to say?
What will the voice assistant answer?
Before the first usability test I created the application on Voice Flow.
After that I defined some findings and goals. Such as the user being able to get the right recipe or follow the recipe instructions?
After the usability tests I made the conclusion of each task and issues to make the needed changes in Voice Flow.
After implementing the voice skills it is vital to check how the user might react on the skill. What has to be implemented? Where are frustration points?
From now on the circle of developing and testing begins. In cross disciplinary teams using design sprints or lightning decision jams to make fast tests and iterations.
