Alexaception

A few weeks ago I switched the wake word of my Alexa Dot to “computer” to avoid accidental triggering. However, I was using it to read the book “thank you for being late” on Audible. In the book, there is a chapter about cloud computing, so Alexa was activating itself, interrupting the book, every time that the book had the word “computer” in it.

It was an Alexaception.

I have then switched the wake word to “echo.” Now I need to avoid books about sound waves I guess.
