CMS FOR VOICE CONTENT

Emerging Tech built a standalone Voice CMS site for Hearst editors to upload content for their skills. Below is the interface for this responsive site I worked on.


RAISING VOICE AWARENESS

I created a process flow for our team and how we worked with internal Hearst groups. We held workshops, and shared resources and best practices material on voice technology within the company.
