How do you listen to TED Talks? Either on TED’s website/app or through a streaming device like Apple TV. Both these options require that you use a mouse or remote to browse and navigate the catalog. What about people who cannot use their hands very well? Or amputees? Or blind people who may find VoiceOver to be a tad bit slow and cumbersome?
People with disabilities can just TELL Alexa to play TED Talks by topics, speaker, or a specific talk, and she will do exactly that. No need to interact physically with the device.
