This screen is used to upload phrases and responses for any of your Alexa devices to use. You will need either, Microsoft Excel or Windows Notepad to create your lists of commands. The two important things here are the  ‘Update code’ and the ‘UserKey’. The Update code is used to connect this webpage to your Alexa ASC skill and the UserKey is used to connect your ASC skill to your PC or to your Control pages. Please do not follow connection instructions from any previous video as this has now all changed to simplify the whole process. Follow the steps below by clicking the ? next to each input box.

Simple test Copy these lines to the data panel and upload them, 0,Hi Jez . all systems go . what can I do for you,1,power up,systems on, systems go,come on love 71,No problem . raising desk please stand clear,1,raise my desk, desk up, table up 72,You ready to sit down now . coming down,1,lower my desk, desk down, table down 200,Sending weather to hall monitor Jez,1,what’s the weather 301,Sending community main street traffic cam to screen Jez,1,main street traffic 85,Drive way camera loading on main TV,1,Camera 1, Camera one Please note, using a period within the response will add a slight pause within Alexa’s response which helps to make it more natural. Ask any of the phrases (Blue) and the assigned response (Black) should be read out by Alexa. Where a value has been entered into the ‘Command ID’ column (Green), this can be used to activate the PC application or Browser control page instead of using words to activate them (if you prefer). So for example, the PC application may trigger the weather report webpage if Alexa hears ‘Whats the weather’ and the application is subsequently sent a ‘200’ code. Each line above has a PartMatch (Red) set to ‘1’. This means that part match is allowed so if you said ‘Turn on camera 1’ it would still trigger because the phrase ‘Camera 1’ Part matched with what was heard. If the PartMatch in the line was set to ‘0’ then the phrase would have to completely match what was heard. Change welcome message Copy this line to the data panel and upload it, 0,Hi Buddy,0,Welcome Message Then just edit ‘Hi Buddy’ to whatever you want. You do not need to say ‘Welcome Message’. By inserting these words the server will know to update the welcome message to whatever text you have used. You can also upload different welcome messages to each of your devices. Name my devices This is nothing to do with your device names in the Alexa app. But to upload to specific devices we need to name them. Simply speak into any device and launch your skill then say Name this device ??????, e.g. ‘Name this device master’, ‘Name this device living room’ etc. If successful, Alexa will confirm that the device has been named and refreshing this webpage should then show you all of your devices in the dropdown list. You can then upload phrases, announcements and command codes to any specific device. Potentially you could then just say ‘Lights’ and it would turn on the lights in the room that heard the command. Trouble shooting: Your skill must be working correctly. Meaning that when you open your skill it responds with ‘Welcome to the speech configurator’ or responds with a new welcome message that you have uploaded. If your skill is not doing this then you need to go back to the skill building page. You must have a valid ‘Update code’. You simply open your skill, wait for the response and then say ‘A new update code’. This will then be written to the Alexa apps home page. Copy it and paste it into the first box above and click the ‘Load’ button next to it. Many users select one data upload format and use another. This will not work. e.g. ‘Tab separated’ and then use data with commas in it like, 0,Hi buddy,0,welcome message If you have selected ‘Tab’ or ‘Excel’ then the fields must be separated by a ‘Tab’ character with no commas in your data whatsoever. If you have selected ‘’Comma’ then all of your fields must be separated by a comma and not include any tabs whatsoever. Also no commas are ever allowed within the actual commands that you upload no matter which upload type you select. Test the uploads by just changing the welcome message and then opening your skill. If this doesn’t work then there is no point trying to upload other commands until this does work. e.g. 0,Hi Buddy,0,welcome message The above line pasted into the datapanel with ‘All devices’ selected and ‘Comma separated’ selected will, after clicking the ‘Upload’ button result in ‘Hi Buddy’ being announced when you open your skill. If you can not get it to work then send a short email explaining what you have done so far using the email address below.
Simple examples Please be sure to select ‘Comma separated’ as the ‘Upload format’ before pasting any of the examples below. You should also select either ‘User level’ or ‘Device level’ as the ‘Upload type’

Important: All samples below are using ‘Comma separated’ which means that there should be no ‘Tabs’ in your data for upload. If you have selected ‘Tab separated’ then there should be no commas in your data for upload. Always click the ‘Update’ button when changing from one format to the other.
