Join us in Defining the future of Voice


Welcome to the world of Hypervoice

The Hypervoice Consortium is the official forum for Hypervoice standards, capabilities and applications. Our purpose is to bring awareness to the importance of voice on the web, innovative voice services and the emerging Hypervoice ecosystem.

"Apple Watch And The Dark Side Of Wearables" - InformationWeek

I admit it. I love my wearables. I love competing against my former CTO and out-walking him.  (It may be a rare day, but it’s a good one.) I love that my mother, who lives thousands of miles away, has the ability to call for help via her Lifeline. It’s one less worry in a sea of worries.

But my love, and patience, is being tested. With all the Apple Watch enthusiasm, and the blockbuster early sales of the iPhone 6, I find that there is a growing pit in my stomach. 

Apple Watch and iPhone 6 provide two more powerful platforms to do things like record our voices with little disclosure.  

Head to InformationWeek to see why I believe customers deserve better.

Etiquette. Beyond separating us from our less well-mannered primate cousins, etiquette is an essential development milestone within any technology adoption cycle.  Remember the early days of email when people would type IN ALL CAPS or developers thought the HTML <blink> tag was cool? (Seizures, anyone?) It took us a good while to gather our collective sea legs on the web and sort out good behaviour from bad.

As Hypervoice pioneers, we have had a central seat to watching new etiquette issues arise.  One that we’ve found profoundly interesting is the paradox of asking someone whether it is OK to record a conversation. What is the right etiquette, and how can our tools work to support good practises?

“Voice is going to places it hasn’t gone before, with people developing applications to post conversations to Facebook, or games that prove you are a good son because you call Mom every week,” said Jason Goecke, the chief executive of Tropo, which makes voice-tagging software. “There are no social constructs for pervasive recording yet, just a hodgepodge of state regulations based on the phone system.”
