Do I Hear an Echo?

My husband, friends and grandchildren will tell you that I've been having lots of fun these past couple of days with my new "friend" Alexa.

Voice Activated Amazon Echo

Grandkids get to hear corny jokes, friends get to listen to a new favorite music artist and my husband gets the local weather report. I'm always demonstrating some new way to use this handy hands free voice activated device that benefits those with or without vision loss.

The small round dot, called the Amazon Echo, sits on my kitchen counter, always ready to help. She will set a timer, give me a news update or play the latest Ted Talks. Ask her for a joke, how many cups are in a quart, or what happened today in history.

Check out how Alexa can simplify your life in practical and fun ways.
