  4. Type in what you would like to say and what you would like Voiceitt to send to Alexa. 

    1. In the first text box, you do not need to write “Alexa”. For example, you can say “Repeat this song” or just "Repeat."

    2. In the second text box, write what Voiceitt will send to Alexa. For example, “Repeat this song."
