SSML Training and Alexa Skills Development Resources

During the course of your SSML training and a brief Amazon Alexa Skills overview, the table below lists available resources for your personal education and use. The resources are intended for members, only, and we ask that you not share our proprietary resources with non members. We make every attempt to keep the resources up to date and available for you, our SSML training customers.

During our live training program, we will be using many of these resources for your information and educational purposes. The topics provide voice recognition market statistics, as well as how to use SSML during your training. You'll learn how to apply your newly found SSML skills towards building voice applications, Amazon Alexa Skills, and you'll receive tools for selling SSML training services.
