Re: Amazon Echo - Project

Tom Welch is the guy that initially was spear heading a lot of the LDSTech efforts and IIRC there was a fair amount of effort that went into that with a whole TON of additional problems that resulted that the development side was trying to cope with. I suspect when he moved on, the support for commu...

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

that's exactly right. I wouldn't call it a very small group but it is certainly smaller than you might think. It's a team somewhere in ICS that's over the Gospel Library app. I suspect the support you get will depend a lot on how willing that team is to work with the community. As far as getting acc...

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

You're right. One of my buddies confirmed that LDSTech isn't a thing anymore. I'm reaching out to some old collegues anyway. We'll see what they say.

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

I guarantee you there's still a contact who's the liason for coordinating LDSTech efforts. it used to be Tom. I'll reach out to a couple of my buddies and find out who I need to talk to.

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

Maybe I can reach out to some of my contacts and figure out what the roadblocks are.... I'll see if I can feel around what's holding it up. is Tom still heading up the LDSTech community from the church side or is someone else in charge of it now?

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

is it up in the air at the moment how you might tie your alexa account to your ldsaccount? Another app that I use called YNAB did something very similar to this and their founder also happens to be lds (he was my brother's home teacher at one point Jesse Mecham.) I wonder if we could learn from what...

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

Here are some ideas from my thread that might be worth bringing up here. Since Alexa is only tied to one person's account however, it would be nice if we could somehow enhance the experience to allow for multiple people to be able to use alexa for their scripture studies. I guess I could always use ...

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

I'm extremely interested in something that does this. I would love for it to be championed by the church but whatever works. I couldn't find any discussions open on this topic so I made my own. I'll have to try out your skill. https://tech.lds.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=28954&e=1&vie...

Scriptures for Alexa

I've recently started to really enjoy listening to audiobooks on my Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. I would love to be able to ask alexa to read my scriptures from where I left off last time or jump to a specific verse chapter or book. I would especially love to be able to ask Alexa to play the most recen...
