There was a TV programme last night about how some celebrity OAPs dealt with new technology. It was an entertainment and funny but very misleading. Alexa featured largely and at one point they tried to get a recipe for "scones" and every attempt gave curry or similar.
After the programme I tried various combination of words and each time I got a recipe for scones. I know Alexa can give funny and misleading results but nothing like the example given.
Still an amusing programme and worth watching on catch up (it is a series)
I admit to having been defeated by Alexa when trying to listen to "Mythos" audible read by Stephen Fry. Nothing I said would get it reading. Checking the voice log there were quite a few correct "mythos", rather more "My Thee ous" and a few "My <not recognized>"
fter a day of complete failure I gave up and decided to use the Talk-To-Me option - low and behold perfect instant playback of the Audible proper narration!
I have not spent the time to see if the add on Audible Narration files are different to normal Audible files.
I hold my hand up to avoiding anything with "celebrity" in the title, much as I tend to avoid books with ".. the gripping new thriller with an incredible twist .." or other such advertising puffs. ( Most of the time I would not know who the vapid "celebrity" was anyway - rather like that chap in the advert selling some bingo site and gets chased by a flamingo. No idea who he is.)
