A Familiar Voice versus a Stranger’s Voice – Does it make a difference?

By | Voice Technology | No Comments

Studies have concluded that the human brain is more responsive to voice versus an alarm. This finding has a significant impact for technology that is being developed to alert users to a danger or situation.

With our growing aging population, there is a constant need for safety, reminder and scheduling systems to help seniors age in place. However, it is often difficult for seniors to distinguish the beeping alerts that accompany technology and they become confused with the what the beeping is alerting them to. Instead voice alerts are more effective in gaining the user’s response and attention. Tochie, Tochtech’s latest voice product has taken this one step further by allowing caregivers to record their voices for alerts and reminders for seniors. Studies have repeatedly shown that the human brain has a higher response rate to a familiar voice when compared to a stranger’s voice. As a voice integrated product, Tochie enables personalized voice messages and reminders to help seniors stay on top of schedules and appointment.
