© 2019 Association for Computing Machinery. Voice User Interfaces (VUIs) are quickly becoming ubiquitous. The natural language interface of VUIs may be more usable for some groups of users, such as those who may face challenges using physical input methods including older adults and people living with a disability. This study explores research on the use of VUIs by one such group, older adults. We conducted a systematic literature review of research published in the Association of Computing Machinery Digital Library that addresses perception and use of VUIs by older adults. We identified an emerging body of research examining older adults' use and perceptions of VUIs. This research revealed ..
