How can I make Alexa speak more slowly?

If you want your Alexa device to talk more slowly, you can tell it to do so by saying the following commands aloud to it: “Hey Alexa, Talk Slower!” If you tell Alexa to “Talk Faster,” she will increase the speed at which she speaks. You can instruct her to “go back to your normal pace” if you want to reset these settings by telling Alexa to “go back to your default speed.” If you do this, she will “go back to your usual pace.”

How can I activate the bilingual mode on this device?

It is sufficient to issue the command “Alexa, talk (mention both languages) English and Spanish” for the multilingual mode to become immediately active. It is sufficient to merely repeat the phrase “Stop Spanish” in order for this function to be reset (Stop any one language).
