“Voice First” A Plus for Elders

For the past decade, software designers and developers have been driven by a “mobile first” mindset,  but recently there has been a shift toward “voice first.”

Voice First refers to applications that people control primarily by speaking, which might well-serve older adults, caregivers, and service providers.

“While the category has obvious benefits for those with visual and motor difficulties, its power to improve the lives of all older adults should not be underestimated,” a report published by ageinplacetech.comnotes. The report also discusses the opportunities, both in 2018 and moving forward.
