Re: Amazon Echo - Project

Hey everyone. After a year of waiting I emailed my contacts at the church again. They said they thought they had resolved anything and told me to go forward with the project. They're going to look into fixing the certificate issue. I've lost a bit of steam on working on this but if they fix the cert...

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

I wish I had something to share but so far I haven't gotten a response. I'll try and email them again tomorrow

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

Met with the gospel library team. Everyone seemed excited about the idea. They were going to look into hosting options and the certificate issue but I haven't heard anything since.

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

https://github.com/rsbohn12/GospelLibraryAlexa I refactored index.js to dispatch intents and added a handler for unhandled intents. I also added a test script -- it runs the various intents and prints the JSON output if it finds something unexpected. Perhaps the next step would be to populate the D...

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

The Mormon Channel Web Services api allows you to get information about the scriptures, including lists of books in each scripture, with titles and descriptions. You can get a list of chapters in each book (chapters in 3 Nephi for example.) The chapter information (for the Book of Mormon at least) ...

Thanks everyone for your interest in the project. Now that the holidays are over, I anticipate this project to start getting steam. I'm meeting with some devs from the gospel library team this week to discuss the next steps. Once we can figure out were the service will be hosted and how we're going ...

Re: Amazon Echo - General Conference Audio Library?

I started looking into a google home implementation as well. So far I don't see any api for streaming audio files of arbitrary length. SSML allows you to select a file up to 90 seconds, but that's not really long enough for this purpose. I know it will play songs from the Google play store, so ther...

Re: Amazon Echo - General Conference Audio Library?

haha, I was just about to start this project. No sense in duplicating work. If someone here has already started, please let me know. If not, I will continue making this for the Google Home. Thanks!

Re: Amazon Echo - Project

Good news and bad news: Good news - I just got an email saying we're continuing down the path of making this a community driven internal project. It's still in an investigation phase, so I'm not sure that's a guarantee it will happen, just that we're still proceeding down the path. Bad news - with t...
