With previous experiences using Alexa dot at home, we were inspired to create a Google Chrome extension that can interact with Amazon Alexa using speech recognition.

What it does

  • speech recognition friendly
  • allows youtube to open up within the Google Chrome extension
  • multiple commands within Amazon Alexa for users to interact with.

How we built it

We built Alle, a combination of Amazon and Google, using programming languages such as Javascript, Html, CSS, Photoshop CC, and multiple Alexa skill sets to customize the different interactions that use speech recognition for Amazon Alexa.

Challenges we ran into

  • Trying to incorporate the AWS functions called Lambda into the Google Chrome extension
  • Trying to find a way to embed url domains, such as, into the Chrome extension using Javascript
  • Learned Amazon skill sets and lambda

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • Created a GUI and embedding it into the Chrome extension
  • Created a user-friendly interface Youtube video player inside of the Chrome extension to watch a video without having to leave your current webpage
  • Networking with peers and exchanging ideas to create a functional software

What we learned

  • Learning Amazon skill sets to make our own custom interactions.
  • Learning how to connect the database to the API
  • Improved knowledge on programming languages such as Javascript and HTML/CSS.

What's next for Alle

  • Making the youtube video player to move inside and/or pop out from the chrome extension
  • Adding more of a variety of Amazon skill sets using speech recognition to allow more functionality for users.
  • Allow Alle to not only work in Chrome but in other browsers, as well as being desktop compatible.
  • Goal: Hands free
