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.

Slowing down or speeding up Alexa for better understanding
« on: December 08, 2021, 05:38:12 pm »
I read a post from back in 2016 and decided to try having Alexa speak slower and more distinctly. Guess what: IT WORKS!! I am probably the only one that didn't know this! 'Alexa, speak slower' will work over and over, slowing ever more. same with 'Alexa, speak faster'... WOW!!!!

Another one to try is "Alexa, turn on Whisper Mode". Useful in the evening if you don't want to disturb others.
