Most callers will listen to the complete prompt, adhering to the rules of turn-taking courtesy 1. IVR Usability Engineering Using Guidelines 17 learned in human conversation. Below is an example for a prompt that leads to turn-taking problems. The prompt occurs in the context of confirming an account number: Let me make sure I got that right: - is that correct?

First, “short-term” memory is limited to 7+-2 “chunks”. This limited short-term memory capacity severely limits how much information a speech interface can present to a user. Aggravated by the low persistence of speech in working memory, this is probably the most significant limitation of speech interfaces, compared to graphic user interfaces. Furthermore, the low persistence of speech has other important repercussions, most importantly that users cannot remember long prompts and instructions. Avoiding instructions and keeping prompts concise are design guidelines that arise from this limitation of spoken language.
