In our last product post, we covered how Voxable’s diagram view can be used to manage the conversation structure during the design process. Now, we’ll examine how Voxable users can improve their designs through preview mode.

Bret Victor's talk “Inventing on Principle” has inspired a lot of the thinking and philosophy that goes into Voxable's product. The main idea of Victor's talk is that feedback loops are fundamental to the creation of an interface. The creator’s ability to make a change and immediately witness the effects of that change is vital to their ability to create.

...I’ve spent a lot of time over the years making creative tools, using creative tools, thinking about them a lot, and here’s something I’ve come to believe: Creators need an immediate connection to what they’re creating. That’s my principle. Creators need an immediate connection to what they create. And what I mean by that is when you’re making something, if you make a change, or you make a decision, you need to see the effect of that immediately. There can’t be a delay, and there can’t be anything hidden. Creators have to be able to see what they’re doing.

- Bret Victor, “Inventing on Principletranscribed on Github 

Conversation designers need an immediate feedback loop that enables them to hear how the content they write will sound to users interacting with their voice apps. 

Preview any bot message in a Voxable script with a key command or click.

Voxable’s in-browser preview provides the feedback loops necessary for creating voice and chat apps. It allows users to experience the voice interaction without needing a developer. 

We also plan to expand Voxable’s preview mode functionality so users can experience the interaction natively on a smart speaker like Amazon Echo or Google Home Hub without needing a developer. Our long-term goal is to create a robust usability testing platform for users to run moderated and unmoderated Wizard-of-Oz tests. 


Regardless of what conversational AI experience you’re building, Voxable will streamline your conversation design. We believe the way to make conversational technology more usable for everyone starts with a place where teams can create, collaborate, and iterate on conversation designs. Try Voxable for free.

Design better voice and chat apps.
