The VoxCheckList app reads aloud each step of the checklist and responds to your voice commands to allow hands-free execution of the checklist. Steps can be passed or failed and you can correct previous answers or postpone a step until the end of the checklist. All with single word voice commands.
Our apps and website work together to allow you to create and edit checklists, to assign checklists to devices, and to share checklists with other VoxCheckList.com users.
Our app is available now for Google Android and for Apple iPhone and iPad devices
Please try VoxCheckList.com for free.
To get started, try the free VoxCheckList app from Google Play by clicking the badge in the header bar or you can click the "Register For Free" button on the left.
As each step of the checklist is displayed on the screen, the text of the step is read aloud. In addition to whatever text you want to be displayed on the screen, if you wish, you can specify both long and short voice prompts when creating a VoxCheckList step. The app allows a device user to select either the long or short prompts, for example for novice or advanced users. If you wish you can silence or re-enable the voice prompts with the tap of a button.
Simple one-word voice commands allow you to mark steps as either passed or failed, to postpone the current step until the end of the checklist, or to undo a previous answer. If you wish, on screen buttons can be used instead of voice commands at any time.
It's really simple to create your own checklist. Just go to the Authoring page of your web account and select "New". Enter the steps of the checklist one by one until you have finished and then "Commit" the finished work to your directory. Then go to the "Devices" page and select the new checklist for use. When next you start VoxCheckList on your device, the new checklist will be shown on the device front page. You can edit the checklist any time you feel improvements are needed or useful.
Paid subscription users can share their VoxCheckLists both with other selected users and with the entire VoxCheckList community using our forums. All users paid and free can use any shared checklist.
Starting with an already-developed VoxCheckList is a great way to get started with the VoxCheckList system. As your experience and knowledge develops, you too can contribute to the Library. All contributions to and uses of the Library are free of charge.
The world is rapidly becoming a more complex place. Most of us welcome the benefits of our evolving environment; of greater freedom to live our lives as we want, of better and better education, of the ease of travel to new places and experiences, of doing business in ways we had not thought of even five years ago. Handling complexity successfully has become a prerequisite to getting the most benefit, or indeed any benefit, from many of the advances we see around us.
And we cannot rely on automation to handle the complexity for us and which anyway always lags the real world we live in. By the time anything is eventually simplified or else automated and made fool proof, then something else turns up which could benefit us yet more if we master its complexity correctly, without fail, time after time. And then of course there are things that have always been complex and always will be. This brings us to a big problem.
There are limits to how much any person, no matter how capable, can retain of complex procedures or specific know how. Then there is the issue of tracking changes to something we thought we knew so well. It’s time to apply a simple discipline.
This discipline involves a small investment of time in committing the process or know how to writing so it can be used with confidence again and again. Where the process is evolving, it is important to capture that evolution so that the process can be used with the confidence of knowing it is being executed to the latest standard. This discipline is a checklist.
In critical applications where safety is paramount, checklists are a standard tool to get things right every time. Think of an aircraft pre flight checklist, maybe the best known example. There are many examples in surgical medicine and nuclear safety, Checklists exist, or should exist, everywhere safety is number one or where there is money riding on correct completion or maybe where the inconvenience of getting it wrong even once outweighs anything else. For example, in reputational situations, you can get it right 99% of the time, but the 1% will be how people remember you.
Checklists are especially useful where a process is complex, or used infrequently, perhaps order sensitive or maybe subject to changes. It may form a strictly sequential task list or simply be a list of things that must not be forgotten. Where the checklist is executed frequently, it is a reminder to do it right every time, no matter how familiar you are with it. Where a checklist is used by different people, it forms a detailed and authoritative communication ensuring everybody involved does exactly the right thing.
VoxCheckList is a checklist tool used compensate for the limits of human memory, recall, communication and attention. It is an aid to ensure consistency and completeness in carrying out a task. VoxCheckList is both simple to use and effective.
There are some example checklists on this site to give you an idea of how this app can be of help and the wide range of applications it can cover. These can be found in the Forum tab.
The VoxCheckList system comes in two parts; the website, where user accounts are kept, and the app running on a user device. A user creates their own checklist content using the website and executes the checklist using a mobile phone or tablet device. The device can be set to provide voice input and output thus providing hands free operation. Alternatively, the voice output, or input, can be selectively disabled and touch input used with just the checklist output readable on the device. Any combination of voice input or output may be selected. In practical terms, headphones are useful, especially in a noisy environment.
The easy-to-use content “Authoring” tool lets you create and modify your checklists at any time. You can add to them, up to the limit of your plan, remove them or edit them. You can even print a paper version. You have complete control over your content which is your property. You can keep it to yourself or, using our “Share” facility, you can share it with others. It’s up to you.
We hope you will join us and register today.
We look forward to seeing you.
