Hello and thanks for posting.

You cannot make Alexa say something and then move to another intent, at least not without intent chaining.

This is because sending the response back to Alexa will basically exit the handler.

However, you could create a function for each intent handler you want to redirect the skill to.

When the code logic stabilises that the Alexa needs to say "congratulations", instead of returning the response directly, you can call that function and send the response from there.

Please note that in order to use the responseBuilder from the function you call, you also need to pass the entire handlerInput).

Regards,
Gaetano
