As far as I know, I should be able to use the below SSML in the Amazon Alexa tester and have audio play back. However, I'm getting an error.
<speak><audio src="https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/djc.media.pool.records/Library/libmp3lame2.mp3" /></speak>
Error: There was a problem when trying to retrieve the audio from https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/djc.media.pool.records/Library/libmp3lame2.mp3
I've also attempted to use the following site to help ensure the mp3 file is in the right format
Could this be a permissions issue? Trying to figure out what's up.
What I'm trying to accomplish is to build up a playlist where Alexa will announce the next audio file that's going to play. I've attempted to use the audioplayer lib and was going quite well, but found that the audioplayer wouldn't allow Alexa to announce the next track. Instead it would only start playing the next audio file. So I decided to simply try using SSML directly by passing in the audio track that needs to play next along with some Alexa speech.
