I have just joined the community - thanks for letting me in! 
I have a good friend who is unable to use her hands and thus to operate a phone. She needs to have a voice activated system abd there does not seem much information on possibilities. We has an Alexa device and wondered whether anyone has experience in setting up Alexa to send phone calls? If so any tips on setting up? Cheers, Neil

    Hi and welcome,

    This link will help you further, it's much easier to read this than it is for someone to explain it. https://www.techhive.com/article/3289390/how-to-make-voice-and-video-calls-using-alexa-and-your-amazon-echo.html

    It's very easier to set up if you follows those instructions.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
