Wake Word "Computer"

All you Star Trek fans that own an Amazon Echo can now rejoice as "Computer" has been added as a wake word. Unfortunately it responds with its normal voice and not with the iconic voice of Majel Barrett-Roddenberry (wife of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry) who voiced the computer in the Star Trek original series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager. But there is hope as Roddenberry Entertainment revealed last year that it has a phonetic library of her voice, perfect for creating voice assistants like Echo or Siri.
