Episode 9

On the show today we are delighted to introduce listeners to the myNCBI SmartHub. Launching today on Global Accessibility Awareness Day, the myNCBI SmartHub is an Alexa Skill and Google Action that facilitates direct communications with NCBI, bringing NCBI services and content into the homes of people with sight loss through an affordable smart speaker.

From finding out about the range of services offered by NCBI, to booking appointments or listening to your favourite audiobooks or newspapers, Chief Technology Officer Kyran O’Mahoney and SmartHub Project Manager Adela Buliman tell you everything you need to know about how to get started using this highly innovative and accessible piece of technology. We also have 500 Amazon Echo Dot (4th Generation) Smart Speakers to give away to Service Users interested in trying out the SmartHub.
