Destination candidates displayed by category are like the screen itself of the car navigation system.

Just saying "Please navigate to the De Young Art Museum" by voice ......

The screen during navigation looks something like this. I think that many people use smartphones instead of navigation, but the arrows and others seem to be displayed more clearly.

Moreover, it also reproduces the appearance of sending and receiving mail without basically looking at the screen at all. Mail arrival → Play by voice → Create message with "reply" → enter body text by voice → send, all the flow of completion is demonstrated to complete without removing the hand from the hand.
