stechdev, yours is "Gospel Library Reader", I've used "The Scriptures" by Spriton Systems LLC. Either way though... I'd love to be able to listen to General Conference talks, no matter who develops it.

Re: Amazon Echo - General Conference Audio Library?

There is a "The Scriptures" skill someone put out early that uses the Alexa voice to do the text-to-voice thing for a chapter, or even a single verse. It works pretty well (as does just having her read the Book of Mormon from my Kindle library) - but the pronunciations are a bit off (Nefi ...
