I was able to run the sample program for AVS. My question is how do I make Alexa skill which I can call from AVS but not need the "ask" word. eg. Alexa ask "mySkill" for directions to elevator. I would like to frame the above as Alexa , please give directions to elevator. Since I am using AVS and I always call the same skill then there should be some way to not have "ask" as keyword to use a skill. I also want Alexa to only respond if "mySkill" responds else say it did not understand or its not able to find the directions. Please help. I am new to this and trying to figure out the best way to use AVS and Alexa skills
Thank you for your interest in AVS but your request is not currently a supported use case. As jiaquinta mentioned AVS is a gateway to Alexa so the behavior follows the user experience on the Echo and other Amazon devices. Today in AVS in order to invoke a skill you must use: "Alexa ask mySkill". Also there is no way to restrict Alexa's responses to only your skill.
