Good examples of IVR, (Interactive voice response), Interaction Design Standards

I'm working on an IVR project and was wondering what were the best
Interaction Standards/ Guidelines which IxD'ers have used, to create
successful IVR solutions.

The IVR project I'm working on comprises many functions for multiple roles,
and is supposed follow standards and be very simple, forgiving and easy to
use, all with touch pad technology.

Others IVR project experience would be interesting to hear, no pun intended
;)

Thanks,

Rich

Creating Design Documents for an iPhone App

Another iPhone app question for you folks. Interally we got the go ahead to run with our app. To get this far I had used vector and photoshop assets found on the web to create concept screens, which worked quite well. Basically I made comps in Illustrator and imported them into InDesign with very little annotation at this point (again just concepts.)

Why has micro-blogging become so popular

Hi,

I can relate to people asking questions, posting experience/views,
promoting product/ideas etc; in blogs. What I cannot understand is why
"What are you doing right now" (Twitter, Pownce, Jaiku) has become so
popular.

What value does micro-blogging add which conventional blogging lacks?

Marking Required vs. Optional form fields

When creating a form, do you feel that it is more advantageous to mark
the required fields, even if they are in the majority? I ask because
I'm working on some guidelines for a client, and there is some debate
about which way to go with this. After reading Luke Wroblewski's book,
"Web Form Design: Filling In the Blanks", I have to agree with his
sentiment about indicating the MINORITY of the form elements:

FROM 'Web Form Design': "Many times there actually are
good reasons for indicating what is required when updating or creating a
record online.

I have to take exception to the first part of this statement. I've been
working in interface design for some 14 years now, and interaction was
always a component of it.

Tag cloud generators

Hi All,

I'm doing an evaluation of the publically accessible tag cloud
generators. Tagging is quite popular now, but most of the tagging
activities belong to folksonomy, which users tag manually. Tag cloud
generators are used to create tag clouds automatically. There are
ways to generate a tag cloud:

1. Given a piece of text, create a tag cloud according to the
frequency of the words.
2. Given a URL of a web page, generate a tag cloud based on the
existing links on that web page

I found several tag cloud generators on the web and use them for my
study.

Wireframe Templates in Visio

Hello,

I have been actively following this group for months. Very good
resource.

I am interested in examples of using Visio as a tool beyond workflow
diagraming.

Does anyone have examples of using Visio as a tool for creating
wireframes? I currently use Illustrator for my wireframes - the big
downside to this application is the difficulty in multiple page
formatting for wireframes.

Thanks in advance for your advice and examples!
