  1. My question is related with India store of Alexa . In India river name, city name, mountain name could be pronounced differently per region in India and Alexa would recognize it differently. For example, ganga could be gangaa, gangga, ganges and many more. I tried entity resolution approach, however practically it’s not feasible to identify all possible combinations of spellings in advance to add as synonym in custom value. How can it be achieved ?

  2. Hi,

    Your dropdown for selecting months in the Earnings tab is not displaying all months depending on the number of rows in the table below it. I, for instance, can only select up to June.

    Cheers,

  3. Echo Spot preview Background image is getting squished instead of cut. I did this https://i.imgur.com/FMt1tUl.png template. It matches both devices very closely, but in the simulator preview the whole image is displayed in a squished state to match the circular shape of the spot.

  6. Deleted skills from the Alexa Skills dashboard should stay deleted. It is frustrating and confusing when those skills re-appear after deleting them.

  9. bug.
    for my skill which is published for US, UK, and CA, the Analytics view lists the option for U.S. twice, and no option for C.A. One of the two U.S. options returns no data. The other works as expected.

  10. Don't use machine translation to translate the dev interface to other languages. The page on Intent History in the Alexa Console is awful in German and does not make much sense. For example the level of confidence in an utterance (High, Medium, Low) becomes "Vertraulich" in German which happens to mean confidential …

  11. BUG REPORT: I can not seem to get the SSML examples to produce sound on Safari (MacOS). While on the "Test" function, I hear all the Alexa responses but if I go to "Voice & Tone" and press play, there's no sound at all.

  12. Just today I noticed a bug in the Alexa Simulator. I test my skill, it works for the first time, however, it doesn't work (launches, but fails in intent calling) the second time unless I upload the same lambda function code again and save. Anyone else having the same problem? And any idea about the fix?

  13. I want to make an alexa skill which takes two person names and test the love percentage. But what I came to see that alexa is not accurate when it comes to the person name. Is there a way that I can give the person name using spelling For example : I want to give 'Tejasai' as a slot but alexa is taking it as 'Tejas', Instead I want to give slot (or input) as
    'T' 'E' 'J' ' A ' 'S' 'A' 'I'

    (spelling out each individual character) and it has to take the input as ' TEJASAI'.

  15. Hi everyone Skill set in Italian must receive voice input of single characters not whole words. Whenever I try to say I, the variable is valued as if it were said E or like the pronunciation in English. I think this is a nice bug to solve

  16. I am able to create a Web application and manage it using AWS Lambda function but is it possible to open existing web application and manage them?

    For instance, If Alexa says open any existing application(For instance :Login page of my application),It should open the application in a browser by itself. Based on details from Alexa voice input, it should enter the username and password automatically. Can some one please confirm if this is possible and if yes kindly guide me on the same.

  18. Hi,
    there is a missing color attribute at AlexaHeader and AlexaFooter.
    I switched the theme from dark to light and the font color of AlexaHeader and AlexaFooter haven't changed. The color is still white.
    Did i miss something or isn't that working correct?
    Please add color support or reverse color at theme switch.

  20. The documentation the the customer contact API says to use the following end points "/v2/accounts/~current/settings/Profile.name". A follow up note says: "~current" represents the userId of the current user (account that invoked your skill).

    I read that and assume I need to replace "~current" with the userID... which isn't the case (after 2 days of off/on testing).
