Hello, my name is Ricky Enger, and today we’re going to discuss a few things that are important to know before getting started with the Alexa Amazon Echo. Well first, what is the Amazon Echo anyway?
The Amazon Echo is a really cool device that you can talk to, and it will respond based on what you’ve said. You can listen to music with it; you can ask it for a recipe; it can tell you the news, the weather …. You can even play games with it, or it can tell you jokes. It’s pretty amazing actually. We call these devices smart assistants, or smart speakers, and they can really do a lot to make our lives easier.
Okay great, so there are a few things we should know in order to get one of these devices and get it set up.
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?
