Alexa Skill Development is a skill set that is becoming more and more recognized in the mainstream. I recently met a community college professor at a speaking engagement in Nashville who is trying to build a Voice Design / Voice Development program at his school.
PHENOMENAL. This will happen. SOON. And as it happens, project managers at digital agencies and Q/A testers will need to test the crap out of voice apps like Alexa Skills.
Some people will have devices, and others will test using the Amazon Developer Console. But this video shows you how to test using only your web browser - for free - using a tool called Echoism.io.
You're welcome! Happy Alexa Skill Testing!
Thanks for reading, watching and listening, and have a great day!
