> Hello and Happy New Year from the NFB-NEWSLINE Team!
> Now, you can listen to NFB-NEWSLINE without lifting a finger. In late
November, the NFB-NEWSLINE Amazon Alexa skill was released. You can ask
Alexa to read the paper, navigate through the paper with ease, and much more
with a simple command set and we can show you how.
> Whether you are a long time Amazon Echo user or Alexa just came wrapped as
a gift under your tree, this is the training for you. Hey Alexa, how can I
access this great telephone training that will take place on Tuesday January
15, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern?
> Be sure to join us on Tuesday evening for an interactive demonstration
conducted by Scott White, Director of NFB-NEWSLINE on how to access the
NFB-NEWSLINE service using the Amazon Echo family of products. Time will be
provided to get your questions answered on the use of the skill as well as
other NFB-NEWSLINE access methods.
