SJSU Crime Watch User Interviews

John said there should be markers so that the user can clearly distinguish between the three or two stories that are in that day’s bulletin. Most of the people who we interviewed said that the bulletin is very informational but some of the terminology was a little confusing for them to understand, especially some of the police terms. Most of the listeners agreed that we should continue recording the crime update in our own voice because it sounds more conversational and is easier to understand than Alexa’s voice.

Some suggestions they offered were to include more information that may not be related to crime. For example, Max suggested we also include traffic information. Considering that people will most likely listen to SJSU Crime Watch when they are getting ready for the day and would be interested in dangerous traffic or weather conditions on that day.
