  • “Alexa, what’s the weather?”

  • “Hey Google, how long will it take to get to the Dane
    County Airport?”

  • “Alexa, wake me up at 7:00 a.m. to Wisconsin Public

  • “Ok Google, tell me about my day.”

These and many more commands are brought to you via inexpensive digital assistants from Amazon and Google. Sources say forty percent of adults now use voice search once per day, and fifty percent of searches will be by voice by 2020.

We welcome you to join the Electronic Technology Committee members in a session to play with and learn about Google Home and Amazon Echo on April 26, from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. in the Westmorland Room, Oakwood Village University Woods. We will have the devices on hand and set up for your commands!


Enter Oakwood grounds at the traffic light at Island Drive and Mineral Point Road. Take the left fork and then the second driveway on the right to enter visitor underground parking. Push the button for assistance. Park in any visitor stall; take elevator to first floor lobby where signs or a receptionist will help. When you exit the underground parking the garage door opens automatically. You may also park in a surface visitor spot (marked spaces along the drive and up the hill toward the large lot). On foot, enter Heritage (6205 Mineral Point Road) at its main entrance (third driveway on the right, at stop sign) or enter the auditorium doors directly from the lower drive.
