Tortu - VUI design toolkit for any conversational platform
pavelgvay last edited by pavelgvay
I just wanted to share the VUI design tool that we've been working on.
With Tortu you can:
- Create prototypes. It comes in handy when you want to do some user testing or put yourself into your user's shoes.
- Visualize dialogs. You literally build up conversation adding user’s or system’s dialog step.
- Store utterances and prompts.
P.S: As a founder of Tortu I can answer any questions. Any feedback is very welcome.

@pavelgvay Welcome Pavel! Thanks for sharing Tortu here
VUI is something a few of us are looking into, @mrdanielschwarz and I plan to look into Alexa skills during 2019. Here are a couple discussions on it.
After writing about VUI (partly inspired by your work!), I found lots of indicators that VUI will be here to stay:
How long ago did you start working on Tortu?

@Graeme Thank you for a warm welcome ️
A year ago when I was designing Google Action for one of the Russian banks I thought that the design process is full of routine work that can be taken away with a good tool. I searched for VUI design tools and none of them solved my problems. I decided to create my own tool. Today we have 200+ designers that work at agencies and companies.
I want to live in the future where people can talk to computers like people talk to each other. And I believe that this future highly depends on how these conversations will be designed. This is why I decided to create a design tool, this is why I write about design.
@pavelgvay Welcome! I'm amazed at what you've built with Tortu and look forward to building with it and following your progress. Welcome again, Pavel!
