Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
By now I’m sure you’re at least a little familiar with Alexa, the smart voice assistant built into Amazon Echo devices. Well, now Alexa is built into a microwave! The GE Smart Countertop Microwave Oven offers ultimate hands-free convenience. With voice-enabled controls, you can tell Alexa how to prepare your food, set a timer, and more.
The microwave also features Scan-to-Cook technology which allows you to simply scan the barcode of your favorite frozen foods, and the microwave will automatically adjust power levels, cook times, and more, according to package instructions. This is especially ideal for individuals with low vision who cannot read small print.
Check out the GE Smart Countertop Microwave Oven on Amazon to learn more.
