Hello, my name is Ricky Enger, and today we’re going to learn how our Alexa Amazon Echo digital assistant can help us with lists and reminders. If you’re not yet familiar with how to use your Echo device, check out the first couple of workshops in this series to get up to speed.
You know, it’s pretty much impossible to remember every single thing we need to keep track of, right? Is it time to buy more veggies? Gotta remember to pay the electric bill. One of these meds should be taken 30 minutes before the other, but which one? It would be so nice just to have someone who could keep up with all these details. And actually, our Amazon Echo can do a really great job with this. Let’s check out how we can make things a little easier for ourselves, with lists and reminders.
So, let’s start with lists.
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you. Your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course if you'd prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off, and track your progress every time you log on. Plus, it connects you to the Hadley community, and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last, but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
