How to get Alexa to pronounce your name correctly
It does not matter if you are Mee-gan or May-gan, Lay-na or Lee-na; there are always accentuations in names that cannot be read easily based on the word alone. At the same time, some names are not incorrectly pronounced by Alexa in the desired language. So if Amazon’s voice assistant mispronounces your name, you don’t have to be hell-bent on cursing it to have it blurt the correct pronunciation.
This is because, in the Alexa app, a somewhat hidden function can be used to instruct it to make the correct pronunciation. You can choose between three options or discover the correct pronunciation using hyphens and punctuation marks.
