So we’re a week later than we thought for a couple of reasons: getting our voice, Kendall, up and running took a little bit more work than we thought, but we thought pushing the prototype 2 out a bit to accomodate ‘her’ was worth it. The Voice UI sounds quick, with high production values. Kendall did a good job for us speeding things up: we specifically didn’t want a voice that was plodding and assumed our customers were too. She’s snappy, and hopefully will sound good after many dozens of listens.
The other thing was some UI tinkering: getting one click access to everything one wants while keeping the UI uncluttered, and dealing with the subtle differences tween the various browser flavors. Nice.
But here we go, and we’ll be releasing this in small waves over the next coule of days.
