  2. Make alexa to take input like "double nine" or "triple six" and convert it into respective numbers.

    If the user says something like "Double nine seven three four three eight two double six" for the phone number 9973438266, as is the case with a lot of users, alexa can't convert it to a number.
    As of now, if the user says "Double (some number)", Alexa behaves unreliably. Sometimes it sends a question mark (?) and sometimes some unwanted request is called.
    As this is one of the most common ways to provide numbers, It would be good if this option is added to alexa sound library.

  3. Make SSML "fraction" work in German

    I think the <say-as interpret-as="fraction"> doesn't work properly yet in German. For example: <say-as interpret-as="fraction">1/2</say-as>, Alexa says "ein zweitel", which no one ever would say. Also, according to the docs this should work as weill: <say-as interpret-as="fraction">1+1/2</say-as>, which she spells out in english correctly with "one and a half", but in German she says "eins plus eins schrägstrich 2", seriously? That translates to "one plus one slash 2". C'mon guys ...
