Alexa, speak slower: Customers can now adjust the speed of Alexa’s speech
Beginning today, customers in Australia and New Zealand can ask Alexa to speak slower or speak faster, enabling Alexa to adapt to a diverse set of customer needs.
Whether customers ask Alexa for the weather, the latest news, a sports update, about an upcoming event on their calendar, for a definition, and more, they can now choose from seven speeds – Alexa’s standard speaking rate, four faster speaking rates, and two slower speaking rates. Simply say “Alexa, speak slower,” or “Alexa, speak faster” to adjust Alexa’s speech to the preferred pace on any Alexa-enabled device. To reset Alexa’s speaking rate, simply say, “Alexa, speak at your default rate.”
