Amazon’s Echo

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last 5 years then you will likely have heard of Amazon’s Echo device, commonly referred to as ‘Alexa’, a smart speaker which listens to verbal commands and carries out a number of tasks.

Because the Echo doesn’t have a visual interface, it’s perfectly suited to people with vision loss, and as such has found a good following amongst people who are blind or visually impaired. That being said, oftentimes people who buy one or receive one as a gift don’t know what top do with it when they get it!

As a response to this we have made a video highlighting some of the things Echo can do for you to make your life and a little easier, and a little more fun! Check out the video below to see Cory run the Amazon Echo through its paces.
