Allen Firstenberg Describes the Tooling Improvements Needed to Move Voice Forward
What kind of improvements are needed to move voice forward. I know what i think about tooling. I think a lot about you know i. I do a lot of comparison. So i tend to think what were what were things like in the early days the web or in the early days of mobile development and realize that we're still in the early days of voice development and start making analogies like that. So you know in the early days of web. Go and we were. We were editing. Html text editors and it wasn't until we started to get tools like dreamweaver get systems like content management systems that tied into bigger platforms that we were able to begin to say you know to to really start to get some of the web. The nice stuff out of the web before then it was you know was there and we could see the potential. There was a lot of potential. We kept talking about the potential but it wasn't until we had those tools that we could really start to unleash unleash it so i think that's what we're going to start seeing what we really need when it comes to voice development are tools like voice specific content management systems or the real ways that we can edit. Not just you know the the broad text to speech systems but really be able to edit the audio nuances of what we want to reply with how we want it to sound shape the entire soundscape about our replies and once we start getting those tools and putting them in the hands of people who are not developers and yet still tied in with with the developer systems. Then i think we're going to. We're to start getting to where audio and voice become really really powerful.
