Alexa can now speak slower (or faster)

Recommended Posts


Excellent find but I asked for the temp of one of my sensors and she defaulted to normal speed. She did speak slower for the forecast.

Hi David,

Was the temp value spoken by a Skill or your own Routine? I've found that my Routines and Skills use the modified speech rate.

One thing to note is that just like "whisper mode" the speech rate is only affected on the device where you set it, meaning other echo devices will still speak at the default rate until you request them to change speed

Neither. It's a  Sylvania motion/temp sensor and I just asked for the room (group) temperature. I never set it up in a routine nor did I enable a skill to use it.

Yeah I think this is intended for direct interaction with alexa.  I imagine audio books?  But can’t we already do that?

The clients I work with, those who live independently, routinely say that Alexa speaks too fast when saying the weather or their calendar
