  1. I'd like to be able to tell Alexa to "don't stop" while reading wikipedia articles. It's very annoying to be listening to an article and keep getting prompted to continue. If I'm done listening, I can cancel, just like I can cancel any other skill that's in progress.

  3. My grandfather uses alexa for menial requests such as the date and time, weather forecasts, reading the bible etc... However he often makes requests like such: "Alexa kindly <operation>" which she unfortunately doesn't comprehend. Is it possible to add some degree of adverb functionality/recognition in?

  4. I have a stutter, and find it hard to say any of the wake words easy. Could an option be added for users to say “Hey Alexa” rather than just “Alexa”

    Whenever I say Hey Alexa, it doesn’t seem to recognise it

  7. Would be lovely if Alexa'd have russian language support. Some friends of mine and I were thinking of bringing Alexa to grandparents as they don't use any smart devices and speaking would be the easiest way for them.

  9. I had recently the problem that my echo dot was playing awful music, but I could not stop playing the music since I had a temporally network issue. "Alexa, Stop" does require internet, that seems to be wrong!

  10. BUG:
    When using LITERAL types the editor creates invalid json. If I add a slot of type LITERAL to an intent it automatically adds an invalid object to the types list:
    "types": [
    {
    "name": "LITERAL",
    "values": []
    }
    ]
    The model validator complains that the values list can not be empty for a type, but there are not values for a LITERAL type. If I remove the object completely it fixes the schema.
