Samuel L. Jackson Can Be the Voice of Your Alexa?
By Hope Bidegainberry on October 2, 2019
If you love your Alexa, but wish she had a deeper voice, you’re in for a treat later this year . . . when Samuel L. Jackson will be added as an alternative voice.
Amazon is using new technology to give Alexa smoother, more natural-sounding speech patterns . . . so hopefully this will sound like Sam Jackson, not a Sam Jackson robot.
It’s coming out sometime this year for 99 cents . . . or $4.99 if you buy it after 2019. Amazon says more celebrities are coming in 2020, but there’s no word who yet.
Amazon is also rolling out a “frustration detection” feature that’ll determine when you’re getting frustrated with Alexa screwing up your requests, and try to apologize.
