Software apps and online services
These are my first steps in putting together an Alexa Voice Skill.
I am re-purposing the "Reindeer Games" trivia skill example with healthy diet questions. I have submitted the Alexa skill for certification, on July 27th.If at first you don't succeed, read the manual a bit more.
There were two recommended changes needed to get the skill ready for re-submission.
1) The AnswerOnlyIntent needed to be covered in the sample utterances. This is because "All intents must have sample utterances, or users will not be able to navigate to that intent."
2) The example interactions I chose for two of the three example interactions, did not have to do with the invocation. So as I re-read the instructions for supplying example interactions I discovered that the trivia app example does not really fit the mold where you can start it and get to an interesting intent just with the invocation phrase. So I added two more example phrases for invoking the skill."Healthy Diet Trivia" Skill has been accepted.
Check out the "Healthy Diet Trivia" skill it has gone live. Hopefully I can improve it and keep it fresh!
I am collecting questions for the physical training trivia skill that I plan on doing separately, since three words are the limit for a good invocation phrase I am separating healthy diet and physical training trivia.
The code will be posted soon.
