Styling the components

Voice form components can be styled with standard CSS. There are ready-made themes with overrideable CSS variables.


Voice Checkbox

Preview of components dressed in capsule and mui themes. To enable one of the built-in themes, include the one of the css files.

// Enable Material UI inspired theme
import '@speechly/react-voice-forms/css/theme/mui.css'

// OR...

// Enable Capsule theme with round widget ends
import '@speechly/react-voice-forms/css/theme/capsule.css'



Set typography for the input elements to define custom typography:

/* app.css */
select, button, input, label {
  font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
  font-weight: regular;
  line-height: 120%;

select, input, button {
  font-size: 1.0rem;

CSS variables

Some properties of the themes are exposed as css variables. If you override them, be sure to include your css file after the themes.

/* app.css */
body {
  --color-input-bg: #f2f7fa;
  --color-input-active-bg: #00a2ad;
  --color-input-active-text: #ffffff;
  --dropdown-handle-size: 6px;
  --dropdown-handle-right-margin: 1rem;
  --widget-shadow: 0px 6px 12px 0px #00000020;

Further customization

To further tweak the themes, grab the css from npm package and make a copy in your project folder.
