With just a small lexicon of voice commands I can now access thousands of books and hundreds of radio stations and podcasts without having to resort to using a screen reader on my laptop, or fiddly touch screen commands on my smartphone. After a long day at work it’s a relief to put those work tools to one side and pick up what I have come to regard as my entertainment centre!
