Unmatched Utterance Should Continue Sessions Instead of Canceling

I often prefer to start a session with my skill because I need to issue several utterances. If Alexa doesn't match the utterance, it cancels the whole session. It's obnoxious to have to restart the session and awkward to say "ask to" four times in a row. This is exacerbated by the fact that Alexa doesn't seem to gravitate towards my sample utterances either. I've seen it abort because it heard "in put" instead of "input." I shouldn't have to enter potential misheard words into my utterances. -tm Message was edited by: tobyjohnm

Thanks, I did discover the "reprompt" part of the response and that has helped a bit. I still get some odd matches here and there, but at least it doesn't always abort. -tm
