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.

TorahResource Radio on tuneIn not recognized by Alexa
« on: August 10, 2016, 01:43:26 pm »
Hello,

Alexa does not recognize "TorahResource Radio" when asked to play it on tuneIn. Please let me know if there is a way to have Alexa recognize this particular tuneIn radio station.  I am able to play the station on the Echo using  the AlexaApp, but not via voice command.  Alexa does ask if I want to play "TorahResource Radio", and when I reply "yes" it cannot find it.  I have tried all kinds of pronunciations.

Thanks,
Archie

It's all in how you ask.

I just asked my Echo and then my Dot:  "Alexa, play TuneIn station TorahResource Radio", and I was connected to the station.

I ALWAYS precede the station name with "play TuneIn station . . .".  This way Echo knows where to look for what I requested.

Next problem, please.
