How Alexa is Enabling People to Live Independent Lives
Amazon's voice-assisting service Alexa is an innovative and practical tool for customers worldwide. Aside from helping people in planning and organization, it is instrumental in enhancing self-sufficiency.
Among the Alexa stories in the UK, a man with diabetes and dementia and a woman with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) having to maneuver with constant forgetfulness use Alexa to live independent lives. The voice assistant enables them to maintain their routine and cover their to-do lists effectively, reducing the need for attendants.
A woman from Germany with spinal muscular atrophy type 2 finds Alexa instrumental in doing automated tasks. The condition limits her movement. Alexa enables her to switch lights on and off, draw curtains, control the air purifier, and identify visitors using the voice command.
Alexa also helps a man in France with a hearing problem contact his son because of its amplified sound. Another man from the same country with spinal muscular dystrophy works runs his film production company and connects with loved ones without any assistance from people.
