I'm developing a multi-platform interactive audio experience and the Amazon Echo is currently the lowest common denominator regarding sound quality. I'd love for the Echo to be the featured platform but for that to happen I need better quality audio from the SSML audio tag.
From the Echo product box, "Stereo sound powered by Dolby. Powerful, room-filling speakers with Dolby processing for crisp vocals and extended bass response." This is unattainable with a 48kbps 22050Hz MP3 file. I understand that it can be achieved with the AudioPlayer API but that API severely limits developer options and user interactivity with the skill.
Please improve this standard by either allowing higher bit and frequency rates or at least allowing for audio formats that sound better at such highly compressed levels.
