What can be done to get the skill working in the UK?

PL:
Can you tell me if there's a similar Logos service for Google Assistant?

I don't have Google Home, so I can't verify, but these instructions are looking helpful. https://productforums.google.com/d/msg/googlehome/64p7vApuzKA/InMkG2d8CQAJ

How do I make it read my top bible? It reads the ESV even though my top bible is the NRSV.

Also, when I ask it to read my readings for today or for a specific date it says, "Sorry, something went wrong." But when I look in Logos, the reading has been marked as read.

Can someone tell me how to get Alexa to read in the kjv? I have it set as my preferred bible but it is using another translation. Thanks

It is driven from a reading plan.  The reading plan will specify the Bible version to employ.

When I ask Alexa to read a Bible verse it reads the KJV. How do I change that to esv?

This is GREAT!  I will use this every day.   If it can read books the way it does Kindle books, I would be tickled. This actually would make me by many, many more books as I listen to them rather than read (beside sermon prep).  Thanks, FL!

Ha! There;s a big enough learning curve for Logos, now I have to learn Alexa?

Dustin Masters:
Here are some of the things you can ask:

1. Is there somewhere a list of ALL the things we can ask.

2. Can we ask Alexa to read a book in our library?  If yes, how?

None that I know of. Maybe that'd be a project for a new Wiki page.

You can ask to read from a reading plan (which could contain a book from your library).

I wonder if there has been any further development of this?

l regularly use several reading plans simultaneously and it would be wonderful to be able to access them all. Likewise, to be able to read books from my library without having lo create a reading plan, especially as I can't switch between plans.

Another major limitation is the inability to pause and resume reading. I'm sure I' m not the only one who doesn't manage to get through in one entirely uninterrupted sitting.

Otherwise, I think this is a great little alexa skill worth working on.

I know "Alexa, pause" and "Alexa, resume" works when using text to Speech of a Kindle book.  Is the inability to pause and resume unique to the Faithlife skill?

Does this help from page one?

Resurrecting this old thread to remind people of the feature ... which some of us were only vaguely aware of, were uninterested at the time, missed because it wasn't part of a major release . . . And if FL is releasing family packages, kids expect this feature and can speak questions before they can spell them correctly.

There is also a facebook discussion of its use on an alternative Logos training/discussion/tips site.

I can still do this.  "Alexa, ask FaithLife to read Hebrews, Chapter 11.   I like it; I wish it could read all my Logos books.  Based on the last post it seems like you can't sign up for this anymore.  If anyone who wants to is able. let people know. I know a lot of people don't like these types of devices.

That's about all I use the skill for. It's very handy. I assume she'll only read one chapter at a time. (?)

I have never been able to make it work for a reading plan. It will read a (very) few words and stops.

It maybe that the skill is not available in my localised Amazon store for my country and maybe it’s still available in US store.
