Abstract : This article aims to explore the specifics of tactile and vocal enunciation in a digital environment, using the examples of Tinder’s swipe and Siri’s voice command. While these gestures are subjective for the user of these applications, their translation into computational language results in an enunciative vagueness reinforced by their integration in a plural editorial context. The polyphony of these digital writing gestures configures an enchanted experience, whether it be at the technical, semiotic and computational level of the device. The pleasure of touch eventually overshadows the recommendation algorithms of these applications, as well as the streamlined system incorporated by the user. Once equipped and extended with these devices, the body finally becomes a medium for the inscription and incorporation of an enunciation both personal and industrial.
