Happy Holidays! The season of giving is upon us, and we are excited to give you some good news. If you haven’t heard already, we here at Blind Low Vision NZ are pleased to present the new “Recommendations” function in the Blind Low Vision NZ skill!

We are the first in the world to develop this feature in any Alexa skill, to give you an ever-evolving, user friendly experience as our treasured clients. It is a machine learning based engine for the most accurate and up-to-date recommendations.
More importantly, we would love for you to try it out!

How does it work?

  1. Say “Alexa, open Blind Low Vision”.
  2. Say “Alexa, recommendations”.


It’s that easy! You no longer will be stuck needing to know or think about what new book you would like to listen to. With recommendations, you may even find a new favourite title or genre you never thought about experiencing before.
Welcome to the rabbit hole; tumble on in.

To access the Blind Low Vision NZ Skill, you must be a client with library access. If you’re interested in registering with us, give us a call on 0800 24 33 33 or email
