Alexa now shows you what it's saying on your Echo's screen

Written by  Jul 29, 2018

The benefits of voice control for some people with disabilities have been well documented, but that's not helpful for users who are deaf or hard of hearing.

For them, Amazon has now turned on Alexa Captioning in the UK after first unveiling it in the US a few months back. Alexa can now show you what she's saying on the Echo Show or Echo Spot screen.

To turn on Alexa Captioning, go to the device settings on your Echo Show or Echo Spot, select accessibility settings and tap on Alexa Captioning.

You can then customise the captions that appear on your screen depending on your preferences.

Amazon is also introducing Tap to Alexa - also for devices with a screen. Available in the US only for now, you can ask Alexa for things like weather, timers, and traffic by touching the screen. It's designed for people who aren't able to ask Alexa by voice.
