I've seen it recently discussed on the echoing list.
main+subscribe@echoing.groups.io

It is a list for blind and visually impaired users of the Amazon line of Echo products.

Does anyone have a list of alexa commands or know where to find the list?

my guess is that a single mailing list would get too chaotic with discussions of everything imaginable and the moderation of the discussions?

Now I'll put myself out there for flogging, but I really don't understand why there is this tendency in the blind/low-vision community to do two things:

1. Split each and every blessed technology into separate groups.
2. Avoid non-blind-specific groups for things like Google Home and
Amazon Echo, where nothing, including setup, is specific to blind users.


In any case, there is the Blind Technology group, which allows
discussion of virtually any technology you can name with an emphasis on
use of same by blind individuals. All pertinent details will be sent in
response to e-mailing: blindtech+help@groups.io
