When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

My article: How to Speak Alexa
« on: July 08, 2015, 10:55:04 am »
I enjoy playing with Echo's streaming radio choices including news stations. I took a bunch of notes of what worked and how to talk Echo's language. I submitted my notes to April's Love My Echo site and she published them in a blog article.

How to Speak Alexa

Here is the formula that I found worked best for me.

1. ask to PLAY - Alexa, play CNN.
if that does not get the desired result (may work but wrong station)
2. ask to play STATION - Alexa, play the station USA Today.
3. ask to play (name of show) ON (name of service) - Alexa, play BBC News Hour on TuneIn.

Using these steps I was able to play through Echo what I found on TuneIn and iHeart Radio.

In the article I've listed what worked for me including over 20 shows you can just ask to play by name.
