Will Voice Interfaces Like Alexa Deliver for Publishers?


You probably can’t tell from my Publishing Executive blogs, but I’m Scottish.

Like most Scots, my heritage is a source of pride and I love it when people, mostly Americans to be fair, tell me they love my accent. For someone that grew up with their mother telling them to ‘speak properly’ that’s a great feeling.

Unfortunately, Amazon’s Alexa, appears to share my mother’s disdain for the way I speak. It doesn’t complement me on my accent, it doesn’t love my brogue, it doesn’t understand me half the time.
