Thanks to products like the Amazon Alexa and Google Home, voice recognition technology is becoming easier to access and enjoy like never before.
In this session, we’ll discuss ways to leverage voice recognition technology to engage your supporters. We’ll draw on data collected in one pilot program at a local nonprofit, in which a community utilized Amazon’s Alexa to increase accessibility to technology tools for users with visual, cognitive and mobility challenges. We’ll also review how other nonprofits, like NPR, the American Heart Association, and Unicef are using Alexa to increase visibility.
