Voice can refer to different things. Sometimes it’s used to discuss a new form of interaction, with spoken commands joining clicks and taps as a form of input, and speech playback joining visual displays and animation as a form of output. Voice can also refer to the rise of new voice-first services, such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana, and more.
Along with triggers such as tap and drag, you are now able to use voice commands as a trigger in XD. Simply select Voice and enter an utterance in the command field. When you preview your prototype, you’ll be able to trigger the associated action by saying that utterance.
Introducing these initial voice capabilities provides designers with a new way to design that has never been possible with any other tool on the market before today. But Adobe XD is just getting started. Keep an eye out for additional language support, new voice personas, and a few more surprises in future releases.
