The web text-2-speech feature in Good Vibe allows you to link a command response to any web content, opening the doors to integrate with many 3rd party services. One of which can be Dropbox.
In this article we will go through simple step by step example showing how you can link a command response to a shared Dropbox file.
Sharing a file in Dropbox
Let's start by uploading a text file in Dropbox, it can also be any of the text files you already share from your computer. To share this file for read by others, we click on the Share button
From the share menu, we have the option to create a link
And then copy the link
In our example, we have copied this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/w7a152ibuu2dxh7/battle-symphony.txt?dl=0
Add link in Good Vibe
Now, let's create a command "Read Dropbox file". For the response part, we click on the extras menu and then on "Web Text-2-Speech".
Here we paste the link from Dropbox and click Add
And we are ready to save the command.
Voilà! Now we can invoke Alexa by saying "Alexa, ask Good Vibe to Read Dropbox file"
