Voice Technology & AI Brings Increased Testing Challenges

Voice is becoming the new mobile as customer adoption and usage is rapidly outpacing original expectations. Companies and industries are moving beyond just having a presence in voice and are building skills that can be monetized and serve as a competitive differentiator for customer experience. Voice presents a huge opportunity for brands to further engage with their customer and potentially tap into new revenue streams. However, as a new and complex technology, companies are navigating how to best engage with customers without negative impacts to the brand experience.

Common challenges for testing voice technology include:

  • Standard Testing is Text Based: Existing tools and methodologies are designed to test visual components and are ill-equipped to test voice inputs
  • Voice Recognition Testing: Testing with a wide range of variables like background noise and different dialects
  • Usability of Voice: Understanding the different phrases that users will speak to invoke the same intent as they will vary from user to user
  • Scaling to the Required Volume of Test Cases: It’s impossible to cover all the required user scenarios and required devices with traditional testing methods
