What would a great audio Bible experience on the Amazon Echo sound like?

What it does

Help you interact with the Bible through the Echo voice interface.

  • Reads Bible passages
  • Tells you which verse it just read
  • Remembers where you are, so it can continue later (even days later)
  • Ask to repeat verses
  • Gives commentary on a verse (hard-coded prototype)
  • Initial multiple-language support
  • Favorite verses

How I built it

  • Digital Bible Platform API
  • node.js
  • Alexa Skills Kit
  • AWS Lambda
  • AWS DynamoDB
  • Heroku

Challenges I ran into

Debugging JavaScript can be annoying.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Full voice app created in a weekend!

What I learned

The Alexa Skills Kit API is great!
