Hello everyone! I am Quarrie. I am 14, and I have been using LibriVox for many years, but I'm new to the LibriVox forums. Even though I'm young, I'm a computer science geek. I'm also about ready to head off to college. This summer, I spent some time working on an Alexa skill to tap into the LibriVox library. It is going pretty well so far. I just made this demonstration video, and would love opinions and input:

I haven't tapped into the API yet, but obviously will need to. I'm back in full swing with classes again, so I don't have a lot of time right now. But, hopefully, I'll get some more time soon to flesh out the program. Anybody else working on this?

Cheers,

Q

Nice! (The concept, that is; I haven't watched the video yet.)

We had someone request such a thing, back in January, here: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=63456

Hello Q,

Glad to hear there's a fellow enthusiast out there about this. I'm working on an Alexa skill as well and happy to share ideas. I've spent a lot of time building up a database of book, for which I've had to hit APIs from librivox and the Internet archive. Here are some Github links

Happy to chat more about this!
