Unofficial AFTVnews flash briefing Alexa skill now available

A reader of the site has created an unofficial AFTVnews flash briefing that you can hear through your Alexa devices. He is using the site’s standard RSS feed, so it’s not a perfect experience. For starters, Alexa does not read the title of each post before reading the post itself. It also cuts the post off abruptly by saying “read more,” since the RSS feed provides a “read more” link for text readers to click, which obviously doesn’t make sense in the case of an Alexa flash briefing. Despite the issues, give the flash briefing a try if you tend to use that aspect of Alexa, and let me know in the comments if you’d like me to work on improving the experience.

    Hi, please improve, it would be great!!

    I would definitely use this if it was improved. The “Read More” has already prevented me from not using it.

    It doesn’t make sense to have the read more in the RSS feed ever.

    If you need, include some ads in the feed. But it’s not good to have to click a link all the time.
