Episode 012 — Alexa and Stroke Recovery

The Amazon Echo is a smart speaker. That means it has a microphone and connects to the internet. It can play music and podcasts and do so much more.

More than 30,000,000 people in the US have one of these things. If you’d like to join them, click here (affiliate link).

This week, I talk about 10 ways stroke survivors and caregivers can use the Echo to live a better life. They are:

  1. Calendar
  2. Medication Reminders
  3. Timers
  4. Remember this
  5. Shopping lists
  6. Audio Books
  7. Phone calls
  8. Ask my Buddy
  9. Meditation and Mindfulness
  10. Home automation

The reason I’m talking about it is because I have good news about Strokecast. There is now a Strokecast Alexa skill. You can go up to any Echo device in the US and say, “Alexa, enable Strokecast.” It’s great for anyone who prefers not to listen on their phone.

Where do we go from here?
