This only goes to buttress the point that human beings are not creatures of logic, but rather, creatures of emotion.
More so, with chatbots, it becomes a lot easier for users to multitask while simultaneously indulging in a conversation. The reason is that it is possible to generate an audio file where users can listen to via any of the supported channels. Thus, while listening to an audio conversation, you can simply use your hands to do other tasks around you. More so, the audio file is equally highly recommended for people who are visually impaired.
