Timed Test using ASK

I want to create a skill where user will have answer questions within specified time limit. Is this possible using using ASK? I can only think of storing start time in session and checking it on every request. But that won't give seamless experiance. Is there a way to inform users time ending even when they have not sent any request?

Timing is a tough feature to implement in any type of voice skill. The basic interaction model for voice skills is Question -> Response, which creates a natural conversation experience for the user.

I don't know of a 'good' way to create the timer affect. The Community might have some other ideas, and if you figure something out, please share!
