Ufuk’s Point of View
Being the first Nielsen Norman Group certified User Experience Designer as well as the first Voice User Interface Designer in Turkey, I have been designing telephone based voice journeys that incorporate technologies such as Natural Language Understanding, Automated Speech Recognition, Voice Biometrics and Text-to-Speech.
Before working as a UX/UI designer, I worked as a localisation engineer for IBM software. This experience helped me to gain an insight into how software works, therefore empowering me with a technical understanding while applying the design principles and best practices.
Today, I design interfaces that understand and respond to people talking naturally; and I design them in a way so that the users really enjoy the experience rather than feeling obliged to use those.
