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.

Turning off extended listening after wake word.
« on: January 30, 2022, 09:53:17 am »
Ok, so I get that we don’t want our AIs deciding we are a bug in its code and eliminating us.. but.. alexa listening on after the initial command has proven to be the most useless and disruptive addition to the code since the start of all this! I cannot tell you how many time she has gone off on some irrelevant rabbit trail just after i asked the light to be turned on! All because my wife and I are having a conversation just after giving the command. Anyone know how to turn this “feature” off?

 just disable follow-up mode.   Just go to the echo device and disable it there.  You have to do it on each individual echo device you have.
