  3. Why do APL designed skills have a dark tint/overlay on listening mode?
    This seems to be a UX flaw.
    Why hinder visibility of a skill designed to have a visible aspect?

    The blue waving graphic should be more than enough to let the user know Alexa is listening.

  4. Example: I want to listen to the Troll soundtrack. 'Trolls' does not interest me. In 4 of 4 attempts, Troll was successfully heard, and Trolls started.

    Usage:"Alexa, play Troll soundtrack, not Trolls" or "Alexa, play Troll soundtrack, ignore Trolls".

    Alternatively, it could ask "Did you mean Trolls (Original Soundtrack) by varied artists or did you mean Troll?"

  5. Go ahead and try to get Alexa to play "Cantos Profane" by Richard Band. Or get it to call my friend Viktyr (No, I don't have any friends named Victor". Some things just require spelling, and Alexa does not accept spelling words out.

  6. Many skills perform the same tasks, some better than others.
    Trying different skills is okay.
    When skills are disabled they are still used (linked).
    No way to stop old skills from interference. thanks

  7. It would be useful to see why elements are positioned as they are in the simulator. Suggestions:
    1. A feature to view the applied styles on each element, especially padding properties and the alignment properties of containers.
    2. A feature to show the outlines of elements, especially invisible elements such containers.

  8. Enable the utterance profiler for speech. My experiences using the profiler is that it gets typed utterances correct. However the problems occur during speech. I would like to see the various intent considerations.

  9. The intent history tool is currently aggregated as a rolling window that goes back 30 days and covers any day where at least 10 unique users used the skill. Unfortunately, there is no way to view data from a smaller, more recent window. This is particularly troublesome for iterative design, as the process to enhance your intent model is extremely slow, something like:

    -Use Intent History to find cases where users are hitting the wrong intent, and fix skill (1 day)
    -Certification (1 week)
    -Wait for Intent History to clear out utterance misfires that were part of the rolling window…

  10. I don't know if the intention is for the Mode Controller to replace the Input Controller in due course but as it stands the input controller does not have the full set of useful inputs in the localised markets.

    In the UK for example I would suggest that FM, DAB are certainly missing and arguably it would be useful to have the more branded Freesat, Freeview, Sky as likely components that are driving an input.

  12. There is a problem with the simulator in that is doesn't show home cards for the Echo and Echo Dot. Since this is part of certification, it would be nice to be able to test this.

  13. to enable end users recognize easily multimodal skills and incite them to activate and use on their screen devices (Echo SPOT,/Show/Tablets/TV..) , is it possible to show an extra iconnear each skill to indicate multimodal Ready for small/medium/large/extra screens on the skill store and/or on the skill details section ? In addition, skill developers may be interested to do extra development to get their skill compatible to multimodal and get more user engagement. Thanks, adrien

  14. The SmartHome SDK RangeController accepts a unit of measure.

    It would be helpful if the full SI unit catalogue could be handled (both Base and Derived: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_System_of_Units#Base_units)

    I can immediately see a need for Hertz for example

  15. In node.js if a user disables your skill, the framework should delete the persistent info record from the DynamoDB stream for the alexa skill automatically. Why leave dead data in my persistence store? The user has decided to disable the skill. It even gives you a warning that it will remove information but it's not deleting it from my dynamo db stream.

  16. As of today, Amazon Polly has a korean voice available. However, this language can not be used in the Alexa SSML lang markup.

    Please consider supporting all available Amazon Polly voices in Alexa as well.

  17. 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.

  18. I had posted this previously but it seems to have disappeared?

    With the SmartHome SDK there is a need to prevent users accessing interfaces that are not in specific regions. For example, an Australian customer accessing the US endpoint may or may not have access to the SceneController capability or the TemperatureSensor capability.

    This is controlled at a level below the specific Alexa Gateway as some gateways only support some interfaces in some languages. We need a mechanism to identify which interfaces are supported.

  19. particularly when testing, the endpoint address may change...regularly. Testing using a service such as NGROK for example it likely to change when services go down. if the host could create the end point and call an API to set it up that would be just great.

    thanks for considering.

  20. I run analysis against my skills to understand customer usage patterns. However, for some of my lower volume skills, this data can be clouded by interactions that happen for certification testing - and I have no way to know what traffic is from real users vs. certification testers. It would be great if userId's from certification testers included a specific format or key name (like "CERT") so I could filter them out in my analysis.
