Good work so far! Let’s make sure that slot elicitation works before moving on.
Your interaction model is now linked to Codecademy’s Lambda function, which will handle the actual video recommendation.
videoTypeslot when it is not provided by the user. Enter a phrase that does not specify the video type, like:
ask video match to find me a video -- or -- ask video match to give me a recommendation
If Alexa asked for the video type, then your Interaction Model passes the test! It elicited the
videoType slot. Alexa may mention something about a “problem” after that point in the conversation. That’s expected, and will be fixed later in this lesson.
If Alexa did not respond as expected, the test failed…It’s good that we caught the error so early! Go back through the previous exercises to make sure that you followed the steps exactly. If that doesn’t work, make sure that you don’t have any other skills in your Developer Console with the same invocation (“video match”).
