I would like to hear your experience with Vocal Accessible devices

Hello Scope Community!

My name is Juliette and I am a Research Associate at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design.
As part of my current research project at the centre I am investigating on the future of Vocal Accessibility. I would be really interested in knowing if you use voice command to access your digital devices (for example Siri).

Here a few of the informations I would like to gather from your experience:
Do you use any vocal accessible technology?
Could you explain me why you use it or not use it?
Do you use it for any specific activity like banking, navigation or learning?

All the information collected will be exclusively used for for research purpose and consequential report. 

Many thanks in advance,

    Thank you @mikehughescq for such quick reply, all this is really helpful.
    The reasons you've pointed out appear to be a common thread amongst few people with similar condition we interviewed.

    It would be great to hear more about your experience.

    Hello @mikehughescq
    I hope you are having a lovely Sunday!
    As you mentioned in your reply your sight impairment can leave you vulnerable. For this reason it would be really interesting to know how you deal in specific situations, if you experienced them. 
    1) Imagine you have to reach a new place to meet someone or to do a business. How do you plan and achieve your journey?
    2) You have to use an ATM machine and/or go to your branch to solve some banking issue. What are the steps you take and where are the obstacles?
    Many thanks again,
