Background
How can I enhance the quality of my daily life at school to align with the overall quality of my daily life by utilizing a library app? Bridging the gap between students' daily experiences and library resources.

Challenge
Designing the JavaScript code to convert audio into written text presented the most significant challenge in envisioning the future of the NYU library. This task required me to immerse myself in an unfamiliar environment, step outside my comfort zone, and explore innovative prototyping methods. These adaptations were necessary to ensure the successful execution of voice commands from the web and their seamless transfer to mobile Android device.

PROBLEM

The current library booking system requires too many steps.





How might I simplify and invent user experience?

INSIGHT


Students are looking for a simpler and more user- friendly library app that includes only the “essential features.”


GOLDEN PATH
JOURNEY MAP
SOLUTION

Voice Trigger Library App

Provide a fast & precise conversion of audio into written text, while also displaying the information to students who face difficulties in using a touch screen.(e.g. due to paralysis, tremor, or temporary injury) use their Android device by voice.

Voice Access provides commands for:
  • Navigation (e.g. "I want to book a study room")
  • Controlling the current screen (e.g. "tap next", "scroll down")
