Interactive News during the pandemic

#smart speakers, #digital audio news,

Here’s an example of an interactive news bulletin I wrote and produced in September for Amazon Alexa devices, now with faux interactivity provided here by my slightly hacked together javascript playlist function!

The audio that’s grey coloured would usually be available when you say the words, More from the BBC, so feel free to mouth them to yourself.
