Voice and the Consumer Markets: Accelerated Growth

Consumers have been relatively quick to embrace voice-based applications, especially considering early experiences with voice technology, such as automated toll-free phone systems, were not particularly user friendly. These infamous systems often re-routed frustrated consumers several times before reaching the correct service option or individual.

The novelty of the consumer experience with intelligent personal assistants (IPAs), led by Apple’s Siri, launched a new phase in voice.

Parks Associates research in 2012 found more than 50% of U.S. users of Apple iPhone 4S were “very satisfied” with the Siri voice-command feature. Even at that early stage, nearly 40% of Apple iPhone 4S users expressed an interest in Siri-style voice command for their TV.

From the article "Voice and the Consumer Markets: Accelerated Growth" by Dina Abdelrazik.
