    I have a bespoke application that I would like to control with Tasker and Autovoice using Amazon Alexa as the voice source.

    I have Alexa, Tasker, Autovoice, and the Autovoice skill all setup.

    I can say "Alexa, tell Autovoice [tell] searcher find ..." and AutoVoice receives "[tell] searcher find ...".

    What I would like to say is "Alexa, tell searcher find ..." or "Alexa, searcher find ..."

    I tried to find a way using Autovoice Smart Home devices but could get Alexa to do anything but try to interpret the utterance but not have Autovoice see it.

    Is there a way that I can accomplish what I would like to say?

    I am an experienced programmer and am willing to entertain a programming solution.

    Regards,
    Jim

    Joaomgcd,

    Thank you, I will look into the link you sent.
    Not to be rude, but would the source be a available for the Alexa AitoVoice skill, or is there an Intent or other vehicle I could use to send an input to AutoVoice or Tasker from an Alexa skill of my making?

    Regards,
    Jim

    OK, using the example you pointed to I can now say "Alexa searcher" and fire up a task.

    Can you point me to an example where such a task blindly sends an Intent to a bespoke app?

    I can take it from there as I have a running VR service using the VR support from Android and supported in .Net, but I want to use Tasker to kick the VR service into listening and then the VR service will carry on a dialog using bespoke voice dialog scripts.

    I considered learning how to do what I want in AutoVoice directly but time constraints prevent that. Maybe some other day.

    Thanks,
    Jim O'Brien

    What app do you want to call exactly? :) Do you just want to send a random intent to it? If that's the case check out the Send Intent action. If not, maybe you can use the Shortcut action with it?
