Audio output volume is a fundamental aspect of every Alexa Built-in (ABI) product, shaping the way consumers interact with devices. In this Tech Talk, you’ll learn audio volume essentials, as well as best practices, from James Petzinger, an Amazon solutions architect with more than five years’ experience working with developers as a human interface design (HID) expert.

James will also share insight into the new design guide released by Amazon that addresses many of the HID/UX/UI questions that have been raised by ABI product developers on the topic of audio volume experience. This presentation will provide an overview of the contents of this new design guide.
