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.

Hi

Is there a way to change the reply phrase to something other than "Okay"?

Thanks!

When do you get that reply? I don't think I've ever heard it.

Alexa says "OK" when you ask it to turn on / off a light, set a thermostat, etc. I don't think it can be changed at this time.

Right, she replies Okay after most commands.  The only time I don't hear it is when I ask the tv volume to be adjusted.

I suspect the only time it says OK, is when it interacts with a second party app, e,g, smart plug apps, thermostat apps, etc.  By saying OK, it confirms it has been in contact with that app to enact the action requested.

Thanks, I expect that's it - it's an acknowledgement and I don't have any of the devices that require it. I'm in the UK though so mine would probably say 'As you wish' and heave a sigh of resigned compliance!
