This disclosure describes techniques for a user to interact with notifications using voice commands, e.g., when the user is unable to provide touch inputs to a device, such as when driving, cooking, or engaged in other activities. At an initial stage, templatized voice commands are used and additional commands are learned using machine learning techniques. Actions such as scrolling through notifications, filtering notifications by criteria, dismissing notifications, acting on notifications, etc. are made available via voice commands. Notifications are displayed or read out based on whether the user is in a context where they can view a display. A tutorial mode is provided that enables the user to provide guidance on interpreting new types of notification formats.
