Have you heard that you can read your favorite publication using Amazon Echo?

"Alexa, open National Federation."

For subscribers who are using either the male voice, Paul or the 
female voice, Kate, we are having trouble sending the audio of these 
voices to the Amazon Echo devices. So, as a temporary measure to 
ensure that the Alexa skill functions properly for all subscribers, 
we have changed the reading voice to Eloquence for all users. We will 
alert all subscribers once the other voices are available again. We 
apologize for the inconvenience. All other commands should work 
properly and be available for you to use. If you would like a list of 
Alexa commands to be sent to you via email, please call 866-504-7300.

Another modification that we have made deals with the addition of the 
Breaking News: Search Results for Corona COVID-19 Virus to everyone's 
favorite list. You can access this by issuing the command "Alexa, ask 
National Federation to read favorite 1".

We hope you enjoy this new convenience feature.
