How can I control my TV and cable box with my voice?

Episode 1506 (1:21:45)

Brian from Indio, CA
Amazon Fire TV Cube

Brian is blind and wants to know what he can do to access the TV easier. Leo says that the Amazon Fire TV Cube is a good option, but the Echo can sometimes misunderstand. It's a good idea to keep it away from TV speakers. He can connect it to his home theater and control everything with his voice. That's a great feature.

The chatroom says that the Amazon Fire TV Cube has VoiceView, which is a screen reader to read the TV screen when needed. And the Cube supports a broad range of cable and internet boxes. Another option is the Logitech Harmony Hub. It can even work in tandem with the Echo.
