You can help Alexa better understand your voice, leading to fewer mistakes.

Does your Amazon Echo often misunderstand your questions and commands? That’s not unusual. The Alexa voice assistant isn’t perfect and can sometimes misinterpret words. But you can help her better comprehend what you’re saying with a round of voice training.

By speaking aloud a collection of phrases, you teach Alexa the sound of your voice so she gets a better grasp of your way of speaking.

At this point, voice training is supported with the first- and second-gen Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap. Make sure you’re in a quiet room or other setting with no external noises that can throw off your voice training. Don’t use a remote for the voice training; instead position yourself next to the Echo device that you want to use.
