  1. New Proactive Events Schema for Health Care Assessment

    We are developing a health care assessment system for CareMore Health in USA.
    The skill would enable automatic health care assessment through alexa powered devices. The health care members would be asked with personalised question related to their health condition. The entire response would be updated to the electronic medical record of the member.
    Nurse practitioners would be able to configure the questions and schedule the assessment. The members would be notified about the assessment through proactive events API.

    Currently we are using AMAZON.MessageAlert.Activated schema to send the notification message.
    The current notification would be like:
    "You have one new…

  4. Subtitles in Alexa calling

    I regularly used Alexa Calling to talk to my 96 year old mum. Having subtitles for Echo Show would improve the conversation. Please make the font size adjustable as a large font would also help.

  5. spam

    Alexa needs spam protection.
    A user should be able to immediatly report by voice about unwanted calls or skill behaviour.

  10. Written commands in routines

    Add ability to add a written command to a routine that would act as if the user spoke a voice command.

    E.g.
    Routine scheduled at 7:00 AM:
    - turn on Light
    - tell you something new
    (New): - perform “Alexa, what is the weather in Boston?”
    (New): - perform “Alexa, open Headspace”

    This would enable skills in routines while leveraging the existing abilities of the Echo, just by allowing written commands to be interpreted as voice commands on a schedule. This should be fairly simple to implement with what it is already is capable of, but would immediately and hugely…

  12. lock a specific device

    The problem I'm encountering. As I tie more and more smart devices to Alexa my home's security is dependent on my Alexa enabled devices' security. This is fine for the Fire tablet as it had a strong password. However, the Echo devices themselves are not secure and not always at the home. For example, I have a Dot at work to stream music through. Or if I take one to a vacation location where I am not the solve person responsible for granting access to the space.

    My suggestion is to allow a device to be locked down when you…

  13. Alexa "Stop" should work offline

    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!
