Daily etymology RSS feed as news flash for Amazon echo
Hello, Please consider making a "daily etymology" news flash item for the Amazon echo, perhaps sourced from this free daily etymology RSS feed.
http://feeds.feedburner.com/membean/MembeanWROTD This would be a great skill or newsflash item to have, when someone is not interested in the standard NEWS items currently available in the daily newsflash item. Or you could just make this a skill, similar to the Joke of the Day' Skill.
That's very interesting, thank you. Do you know if the source information for this namenerd skill comes from an audio file or is it sourced from a text file as TTS? I liked the etymology source, since it was sourced from a audio file, much like the existing news feed models. It just plays the most recent audio file, simple. Say, does anyone have a generic RSS skill which can pull the latest audio file form an RSS and just play that? That would work for me.
I used Alexa's TTS. I have another kill, Demotivate Me, that (mostly) uses a voice actor. You could write a RSS transcriber. However it would have to transcode whatever the audio input was to the audio supported by Alexa. It's not terribly hard, but it's a bit tedious to do and do right.
