  1. Forcing a user to remember a skill name is counter-intuitive, bad experience and leads to low adoption rates.

    PROBLEM: Forcing a user to remember a skill name is counter-intuitive, bad experience and leads to low adoption rates.

    Examples :
    Alexa, tell Agent NEO to find my Home Value
    Alexa, tell Harmony to turn on my TV
    Alexa, ask AllRecipes for a Pasta Recipe

    Proposed Solution:
    Alexa, find my home's value (Alexa knows that the skill Agent NEO that the user has enabled, can handle this intent)
    Alexa, turn on my TV (Alexa knows that the skill Agent NEO that the user has enabled, can handle this intent)
    Alexa, find a Pasta Recipe (Alexa knows that the skill AllRecipes…

  8. Document at least, and please work at least slowly on IDN

    For SmartHome-Skills & German language, there has IMHO been no progress within the last 6 months. Undocumented non-support for certain languages e.g. for scheduling with ThermostatController is a No-Go. My preferred shortlist for german language support expansion: 1) Scheduling, 2) Sensors (Liters, Watt, kWh, mm etc.) to query all kind of numbers.

  9. Alexa Czech Language Support

    Please consider Czech language support for Alexa, as it is a highly developed country in terms of e-commerce, and as well as one of Amazon's logistics centres is located there. Thank you.

  10. Add support for multi languages on the same phrase.

    Being a spanish speaker in US it's hard to ask Alexa to play your favorite spanish artist in Amazon Music. Things like: "Alexa, play Joaquin Sabina", are almost impossible today.

  11. Allow 3rd party Alexa devices to change language in alexa.amazon.com

    Allow Alexa-pi (raspberry pi with alexa installed) to change language in alexa.amazon.com... I have a German amazon account but I use Alexa (on my Echo) in english... But Alexa-pi defaults to German and I can't change it.... FYI... I use Reverb on mac as well and I have the same issue.

  13. How Alexa can recognize Hindi/Marathi names of river, city, mountain and many more like Ganga, Pune, Kalsubai etc

    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 ?

  15. Improve Places Pronunciation for EN-GB

    We are developing a custom skill for eurostar (Trains) and we notice when alexa speaks <speak>
    Lyon Part Dieu
    </speak>
    The speech is not accurate. I have find similar speech from google https://codepen.io/SteveJRobertson/pen/emGWaR which actually says Lyon in the proper way. Is there any change to improve that ? Thanks!

  16. Add Portuguese/Brazil in the support regions for camera apps...

    Add Portuguese/Brazil in the support regions for camera apps with Alexa.RTCSessionController and Alexa.CameraStreamController.

    This will allow many apps that already work in English to be added to the Brazilian store. It can also solve some problems that video apps have to not work correctly on Echo show 5 and 8 in brazil

  17. Add Serbian language

    We need Serbian language support to develop local Alexa skills.

    Help in understanding language maybe can provide AlfaNum from Novi Sad with their API.

  18. Define input language for the following user input

    It would be helpful if you could specify in an response the input language for the subsequent user input.
    Example: I have an English-language skill where the user should translate vocabulary into German. Since Alexa is set to English in this case, the German user input is often not understood and transmitted correctly.

  19. Add multi account in italy

    Now Alexa in Italy can recognize family members voice but only uses the owner Amazon account.

  20. Offer a complete list of directives for all Smart Home Skill locales/languages

    Our users frequently ask what exactly they can say to Alexa to make her do certain things in their smart home.

    There is no complete list of all the commands/directives that work with Alexa Smart Home Skills yet. Such a list - maybe even in all locales/languages - would help us a lot in testing and giving our skill's users the information they need.
