For people who need help with reminders, being organised, asking for information or controlling household items with their voice if the person can’t physically use those items.
Smart Speakers are a Star Trek fan’s dream: a small affordable computer that can be controlled by just your voice. Smart Speakers can be used to answer you questions, set reminders, listen to music and operate household items (these must be compatible with the smart speaker). They are ideal for those who find writing down reminders difficult to do as you can vocally set a reminder in seconds and the speaker will speak it out to you.
The most well known smart speakers are made by Amazon and Google. Some of their smart speakers come with a screen but these will cost more than regular smart speakers.
