I would like to ask "Alexa, read <website name>" and have her start reading the site aloud.
Is there an existing skill, or capability we can add to our skills, to do this?
Getting the webpage text is not hard. (E.g.: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6287297/reading-content-from-url-with-node-js) Getting Alexa to read something is not hard either, I assume.
The main problem in my opinion is to get Alexa to correctly hear the webpage you say. Would it suffice for you to have a set of readable websites, where you create an intent for each of them?
I have created the similar skill website reader, here is the link https://www.amazon.in/gp/aw/d/B07CRK3DP5/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1526134130&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX118_SY170_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=Website+reader&dpPl=1&dpID=518hETTmCkL&ref=plSrch
The website must have rss/atom link. You can read more on the link provided
