For any corporate worker, this will sound familiar: you’ve just finished a proposal, thought process, or project plan, and now it’s time to present to your colleagues. You sigh and prepare for a long night in of building Microsoft Powerpoint slides. Will it be 10 slides, 20, or 50 to convey your idea? Only time will tell. You make yourself a pot of coffee and prepare for the carpal tunnel you’ll experience the following day.
It doesn’t have to be like this. As voice-directed technologies progress, so should our ways of communicating with each other, past the casual conversation to the more formal business presentation. I want to make a voice-based presentation builder, where you access the microphone of your computer to direct a bot to help you build your presentation— moving shapes, text boxes, and images into alignment. With simple voice commands, you’ll be able to build faster and build with ease— maybe even multi-tasking and doing household chores as you prepare a presentation.
What do you think of this idea: is this something you would use?
