Getting Started

A brief guide to work with Voxpow and what do all the fields mean.


NOTE: You can take a look of our FAQ section also. This documentation is more technical overview of our service.

Tracker widgets

Widgets are little visual elements, which will show on your website. They will accept user speech, convert it to text with browser Speech API, and perform an action based on what the user says. We have some pre-defined styles, and you can choose the best one, which fits best to your website design.

Dashboard

We have an dashboard where you can control all the functions of the trackers. You can choose the language which your customers speak, the searching, the typing message, and much more. We believe in the concept of a single place of control, so the dashboard is the place where you can master everything related to your tracker.

Tracker code

It is the identification of each tracker. Star with prefix "vp-" + numbers. The first number points to the region, where the main server is situated.

Tracker language

That is the language that your website visitors speak. You have to choose precisely because otherwise, speech recognition won't work, and you will receive unusual results.

Last changed

It is a field that describes the last time of changing something in the tracker options.

Has active subscription

It is an option that describes if the tracker has an active subscription. That setting is available in PRO trackers only.

Days to end

Days to end of the current subscription cycle. Will show you information when will be your next billing. Available in PRO trackers only.

Commands

Commands are instructions that you set in the administrative dashboard of our service. They are spread all around the world with CDN, and all users have the last copy of your instructions. Commands, in a nutshell, are something like this: "make this if a user says that". For example, if a user says "red shoes", and you defined this type of search in your commands interface - the user is redirected to the address you specified or to the website search if you don't have a command for that. We have a separate section with more information: here

Search message

The search message is the message which will be shown to the customers. They see this, and it should be something that will make them open the tracker widget.

Type (or Write) message

The write message is the text which the customer sees if he starts using the typing with voice service. In other words, it changes when there is a switch from "Searching with voice" to "Typing with voice".

Search URL

The search URL is the address that is used from your website to perform a search. Generally speaking, it is related to your CMS or type of website. Usually includes a GET parameter, like this "https://example.com/?q=". WordPress sites should be something like this "https://examplewp.com/?s=". For Magento sites, it is possible to be in this format "https://examplemg.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=".

One of the best ways to find it is to perform a search and see how it is made.

Use voice typing in text and input fields

Mark this if you want to give more control of that how visitors can type in your site. If it is switched on, visitors will be allowed to use the input fields and write inside them with voice. Hidden or password fields will not available for typing for security reasons.

Save user searches

Should we keep track of the user searches? It is an option that is available in PRO trackers and can give you evident insights for that - what the users want to find on your website. We will save in the form of plain-text all searches, plus the information about the device from where the searches are done.

Remember status

An option that will remember if the user opens the widget. If opened once - it will stay open until they close it manually. It can be useful if there are a lot of input or text fields to type in with voice.

Show the tracker only for mobile devices

By default, it shows to everyone, but you can choose to show it only to mobile devices. It is an option available in PRO trackers. Devices we detect on the fly based on user-agent.

Theme

The theme is the pre-build design from which you can choose. It is how your voice tracker looks, so it is crucial to choose carefully. There are two big choices - left or right, which stand for where the tracker appears on your website. Please pay attention if you have some chat widgets or additional tools, which can overlap the voice tracker.

Instalatlion code

Installation code is a little code fragment, which has to be installed in the body section of your website. You can also use Google Tag Manager to place the installation code.

Technology

Voxpow uses built-in browser API-s, some third party JavaScript libraries, and a ton of custom code to allow your visitors to use their voice for searching, typing and sending voice commands to your website.
