Handling the correct pronunciation of some of the Spanish words, interchanging English and Spanish in the intent response, as well as supporting non-screen devices and screen-based devices in a seamless fashion, using the same codebase.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Creating a clean user experience for those devices that support APL
What I learned
More about creating engaging and useful Alexa Skills
