The Alexa Cadence

(Video coming soon.)

  •  Always start talking with the "wake" word. In my case, it was Alexa.
  •  Then pause briefly.
  •  Then make your request or statement.
  •  If she doesn't respond, then that means she didn't understand.
  •  The blue light means she is listening and processing.
  •  It takes some practice!
  •  Remember, short, concise, direct statements, just like you would as a caregiver speaking to your care partner.
