The Internet Archive discovers and captures web pages through many different web crawls.
At any given time several distinct crawls are running, some for months, and some every day or longer.
View the web archive through the Wayback Machine.
Content crawled via the Wayback Machine Live Proxy mostly by the Save Page Now feature on web.archive.org.
Liveweb proxy is a component of Internet Archive?s wayback machine project. The liveweb proxy captures the content of a web page in real time, archives it into a ARC or WARC file and returns the ARC/WARC record back to the wayback machine to process. The recorded ARC/WARC file becomes part of the wayback machine in due course of time.
Turn any time into story time with Amazon Storytime, a free Alexa skill for kids ages 5-12.
Explore a collection of more than a hundred short stories featuring lively full-cast recordings. Kids can choose from story categories including bedtime, silly, family, friends, and more. Or spin the magic story wheel for a surprise set of stories.
Check out super fun original stories from LEGO®, or go on an interactive story adventure with Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
Try Saying Things Like: “Alexa, ask Amazon Storytime to tell me a Ripley’s story.” “Alexa, ask Amazon Storytime to tell me silly stories.” “Alexa, next,” to skip a story. “Alexa, start over,” to go back to the beginning of a story. “Alexa, pause,” to take a break, and “Alexa, resume” to continue listening.
My daughter and I enjoyed it but she was very sad that we could not play a story she heard previously. Even asking for it by title name didnt work. Nor could it comply by asking for it to play the last story we heard. It would also be a nice feature to be able to mark stories as “favorites” so we can hear them again.
At first both my 4-year-old son, and I were in love with this skill. He would listen to it for an hour at a time. However, the stories started repeating. Very few seem to be actual published books. The quality of the stories is poor. Lots of whining and even lying to adults in stories. The one where the boy and girl play pretend house is what got me to disable the skill. “Do you like my new yoga outfit, honey?” 🤢 Why have my kids listen to these crappy stories? Most characters display behaviors I wouldn’t want my kids to emulate.
If we don’t remember to set the sleep timer before enabling the stories, Alexa just keeps telling more and more stories. Our kid never goes to sleep! Please revert to reading just ONE story. Do it for the parents!!
My kids love Amazon storytime. Even if we read to them, which we regularly do, it's a good way to get them to bed. They enjoy the stories, even though it doesn't seem like there's a lot of depth (yet) for each type, the pool of story types seems to be getting wider though, which is good. I like that more than one story plays now, it send to get the kids to sleep faster.
Here's what I don't like: *It takes a bit of time to turn on. Alexa doesn't always hear them say 'family' or 'bedtime' when they say the type of story either. *It's really loud when you ask it to stop. I have verbose mode off, but ending storytime is practically a story itself. It's enough that my five year old has been roused from her sleep more than once. *There's no good way to turn it off quietly from my phone or another Alexa device. I most often go into my kids room and unplug the device. It's the fastest and quietest way to stop it. Please give us a quick way to stop this immediately (and quietly) from a smartphone or another echo enabled device. [Edit] I have recently been able to stop the storytime mode from another device. It also makes the announcement that it's stopping on the device that heard you. Great improvement! [/Edit]
This app is fantastic and my kids love it. They love it so much it keeps them awake until I go upstairs and shut it off... after more than an hour sometimes. This needs a timer of some sort or perhaps a custom story count (15 mins or so?) then turn it off.
It asked for a CVcode OR to text a code to my phone. Its strictly for identification purposes. My 3 kids ages 5 thru 8 all have Kindle Fires and to protect them from adult content and to tailor age appropriate content, as well as to protect childrens privacy rights, which are different from ours, they need information about our kids. Alexa already has all their info. My children love stories from Alexa, Amazon is changing the world, and I think its just silly that this app has any bad ratings, the stories are fun and age appropriate. Don't be scared lol. It'll be OK.
I was skeptical and wondered if the stories were read by Alexa as is the case with other apps. The stories are told with sound effects and narrated by actors! This sounds more like professionally read book on tape. Great addition to bedtime!
I love this skill because it has many funny, sad, scary, or happy stories that it can tell you. It can tell you audible or Amazon rapids. I prefer Amazon Rapids because it has a different voice for every character, where as Audible reads to you with one voice. So the stories from Amazon Rapids are more interesting and they are shorter than the Audible stories so, if you fall asleep listening to one it just turns off when it ends, which shouldn’t be long. Some of my favorite stories are the Danger and Eggs series, the tricky sitter, and the dad store. I hope you try out Amazon Rapids and I hope you enjoy!
