How to enable Alexa Skill?

We recently developed Amazon Alexa Skill for a charity organization in the U.K called as “Basildon Hindu Samaj”. https://tinyurl.com/y4knnyfv

Purpose of “Basildon Hindu Samaj” skill is to get the events details hosted by “Basildon Hindu Samaj” committee members. Also it would help you to know more about type of events, time of the event, place of the event and how to contact them.

You can either enable “Basildon Hindu Samaj” skill from your Amazon Alexa mobile app or by saying to Alexa device to enable “Basildon Hindu Samaj” skill.

I know many of you have already got Amazon Alexa devices and are very familiar with the invocations and enabling skills.

In this video I would like to show, how to enable the skill using your mobile app, and start asking questions about “Hindu Samaj “skill. This is very useful for people who don’t have Alexa devices, but they can use there smart phones as their Alexa device.

You need to install Amazon Alexa mobile app, then navigate to Skills section and search for “Basildon Hindu Samaj”, the next step is to enable the skill. Once you have enabled you would see options to choose from the various English accents. If your Alexa devices are registered in the UK, Or if you have an amazon UK account by default it is set to English GB accent.

If you want to speak and listen in Indian English accent then you need to De-Register your UK devices from amazon (manage devices settings ) and register with Indian English accent.

If you have got Indian English accent setup on your device, then you can straight away ask questions.

ask hindu samaj when is the event

ask hindu samaj to tell about the event format

ask hindu samaj about committee members

If you have got UK English accent setup on your device, I would advice you to invoke the skill first before asking questions. Click on the blue button to invoke intent as seen in the video.

If you have got UK English accent try out the commands above, if you don’t have UK English accent try commands as shown below.

example

you can first say,

“ask hind samaj” and give a pause to hear a message from Alexa, then you can ask

“when is the event”

Alexa workshop at Amazon UK – with Andrea Muttoni 

 

Alexa_Amazon_DeepakRoy.jpg

It was my pleasure to meet Andrea Muttoni Sr. Solutions Architect | Tech Evangelist – Amazon Alexa at Amzon London Office workshop. Thanks for teaching us simple techniques to build custom Alexa Skills. It was a great workshop hosted by Andrea, which covered all the basics and the tools we can use to build skills in a short duration.

The information about Speech Synthesis Markup Language SSML was mind blowing, the number of functionality available to implement for customers requirement was vast.

Thanks for providing the opportunity to show demo on the skills GeniusLead has developed to all the people who joined the workshop. I wish Andrea all the best for many more events similar to this workshop, which helps out lots of business across global.

Meanwhile try out our custom made skill “Where is my thing” at https://tinyurl.com/y4l22n5c and give us your feedback to improve further.

“Remembering all the things at home, office, school, college becomes difficult if it is rarely used. It’s better to outsource this job to a free personal assistant, who can store all the details of the things or objects anywhere as you store them. Use your voice command and ask Alexa to store any object at home, and retrieve any information any time. Example : Say “Remember” “Land registry documents is at my office desk at fourth rack”. Then ask alexa “Where is my” “Land Registry documents”. Another example : “Remember” “My old sticker book is in the shed”, then ask Alexa “Where is my” “sticker book”. You can also update the location again for the same object, Alexa would retrieve the updated location. We also provide a mobile app for organizing manually, if you like to. Data is stored in a secured database on cloud for each user and not shared with anyone.”
