Amazon makes Echo Show more accessible with Tap to Alexa

July 23, 2018 / KYLE WIGGERS

With no more than a few simple commands, Amazon’s Echo Show can highlight restaurants nearby, aggregate sports scores, and serve up viral YouTube videos. But the voice-centric nature of the Echo Show makes it difficult for deaf and speech-impaired users to use.That’s changing today with the launch of Tap to Alexa, a new feature that lets Echo Show owners access weather forecasts, news headlines, timers, and other Alexa features by tapping on the Show’s screen. It places shortcuts to the aforementioned features on the home screen, where they can be swapped out or rearranged to each users’ liking.
