ABOUT THIS SKILL

JW Access is an Alexa skill to link to, and play, media available on JW.org, the official website of Jehovah's Witnesses.

The idea for this skill stemmed primarily from a desire to assist those who have a visual impairment and might not be able to navigate the website easily. However, it is also very enjoyable to listen to content, such as original music, while working around the house.

Getting started:

Simply ask Alexa to enable the skill JW Access.
