Recap from Product Camp Boston

I hate ‘speak to me’ phone menus. Numbers and buttons are accurate and FAST. how long does it take to push a button? how long does it take to say ‘check my balance’? 3 more reasons why voice menus don’t work. 1. I have no privacy. I have to say it out LOUD into the […]
