Capture doesn't recognize numbers oder dates in German - despite of category chosen

When i use a capture-block to read a number or a date into a variable I assigned to “number” or “date” I always find the TEXT in the variable!

Language in use is GERMAN - so when the user says “zwei” it doesn’t turn to “2” as variable-content or in a date-capture it’s “Dritter Januar Zweitausendeinundzwanzig” instead of “3.1.2021” - that means I can’t neither use IF nor calculations with that variables, because all the logic sees is TEXT instead of number or dates…

btw: I do coding since 35 years - so consider some basic knowledge about variables…

Is that a problem only in german? Any Idea how to solve that?!

Best regards


have never tried with German, but for Japanese, it works.

If you have tested on Voiceflow’s test (prototype tab), I recommend you should always test on Alexa Developer Console. Voiceflow’s test is simple and easy but it’s not Alexa, I mean some features such as NLU and STT don’t works same as Alexa does.

Thanks for the input - but testing in Amazon is even more frustrating!

I have the same issue. Any resolutions found so far?
