Knowing when a response has been read (by the echo), and firing a new intent as a result.

Is this in any way possible? It seems to be what is happening in the flash briefing news application which comes with the Echo by default, but this functionality seems to be inaccessible? To give you an idea of my issue, what I'm trying to do is simply read an array of items, one item after the other until the no more items are left. Along with this, I would like to give the user the possibility of skipping ahead or saying "next". I've looked through the HistoryBuff node.js sample, and they do this by appending each item on to a string. This, however, eliminates the possibility skipping, as you would then have to skip an entire section instead of just a single item. Ideally, I would be able to fire an intent through the response object sent from the server/AWS Lambda, but in any case, I cannot wrap my head around this one. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

There is nothing in the current API that would allow for this, as far as I know. Skills created by developers do not have as much capability as built-in Echo functionality.
