slot type for email address for English (IN)

Hi,

I am using AMAZON.SearchQuery to get Email Address as input. But the problem is, It is handling numeric digits but not special characters.

For Example:- The email address is me.akshay_goyal@rediffmail.com. Now alexa taking ( . ) as a dot, ( _ ) as at underscore.

Please, may you help me how can I solve this problem?

Hi,

sorry for the late answer.

It is quite hard to retrieve this kind of information via voice.

Even with custom slot, e-mail addresses can have pretty much infinitely different patterns.

You would have better chances of retrieving this information by implementing Account Linking or using the Customer Profile API, if applicable to your skill flow.

Kind regards,
Gaetano
