Alexa can wait longer to speak before you stop listening.
Zoom in / customize time. It may be common to your kids, partner, and co-workers, but shouldn't your virtual assistant be any different? Amazon Alexa will be more patient with users thanks to Tuesday's update, which allows the service to wait longer before a person stops listening to their requests.
This feature is optional, as reported by Forbes. It will definitely come in handy for those who speak slowly or just need more time to process their thoughts. But it is actually intended to be an accessibility feature that makes it easy to use the Amazon Virtual Assistant for people with speech disorders. Shahzad Mwala, head of speech recognition for Alexa at Amazon, told Forbes. As for Amazon, after some customers said to the company, "they need more time for Amazon to respond to their requests." More time for people to talk to Alexa could make this product more attractive to millions. According to the American National Audiovisual Association, more than 3 million Americans stutter, and about 7% of Americans have some form of stuttering.
Another Kind of Communication
This week, Amazon also updated the Alexa app on Android to allow users to type in orders instead of talking to them, The Verge Reported. This feature is in public preview in the United States. Of course, the ability to type commands in Alexa can be very important for those who find it difficult to talk, but this update also provides a special way to communicate with Alexa when others are in the room. Alexa for iOS users from iOS in December, and competitors like Apple Siri and Google Assistant have been accepting written requests for years.
