How do you get Alexa to continue reading a wikipedia article. It asks if I want it to continue and I say yes, but nothing happens.

Actually, this is a known issue. I can't give you any sort of timeline when it will be resolved though, sorry!

Hello, thank you for your inquiry. You can use the "re-prompt" object as outlined below to continue to hear more of an article on Wikipedia. I have included some sample code from the History Buff Skill, which uses the Wikipedia API and re-prompts to ask the user if they would like to hear more of the article, for your reference.

repromptThe object containing the outputSpeech to use if a re-prompt is necessary.

This is used if the your service keeps the session open after sending the response, but the user does not respond with anything that maps to an intent defined in your voice interface while the audio stream is open.

If this is not set, the user is not re-prompted.
