One of the first things we learn is how to talk; before we can read, we can listen. The power of the spoken word plays a critical role in how we understand the world and each other. Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant give us a new way to reach our audiences, even if they're brushing their teeth or making dinner. We can share content and create interactive experiences that engage through natural language. I'll share my experiences using voice technologies, and how we can use WordPress to create voice apps and deliver our content through this new medium.
