Hi ... I'm having a problem with my skill

I know it is a very simple solution

But I can't place it in such a way that there is no error

What type of error are you getting? Can you share your whole code? Or more info about what's happening?

I just spotted one thing. In canHandle of 'GetNewFactHandler' you only check if intent type is 'IntentRequest' which is almost every time true, that means, that almost any intent will get matched to that intent.

I cannot see how your "MemeSoundIntentHandler" can handle function looks like, but if it goes before get new fact handler and its can handle condition is the same, you almost never will get to get new fact handler. To solve this, instead of only checking intent type, also check intent name in can handle and match it with intent you are expecting, like:

canHandle(handlerInput) {
    return handlerInput.requestEnvelope.request.type === 'IntentRequest'
      && === 'GetNewFactIntent'

I don't know how your intent is called so I just called it 'GetNewFactIntent'. Instead of it add your intent name, that you wish to get matched to this handler.

This would be my index code support by alexa hosted

and the error I receive is simply the "parsing error" when I try to add the random factor

Ok, just tried your code, you need to add a comma at the end of string at line 145.

const data = [
  '<audio src=""/>',
  '<audio src=""/>'

Items in array have to be separated by commas.
