Why are my Display visuals not showing?

Several months ago I created a voice-only Alexa skill that is working well. I recently added visuals and published the updated skill, but the visuals are not displaying on my Alexa Show 5 or my Alexa for PC app. Can anyone share reasons why this might be happening? The skill is titled “Anglican Rosary.”

Hey John, are the visuals showing up in your Alexa Developer Console?

Only one of the visuals appears in the Developer Console.

Alexa can response only 1 Display response between user interactions. That means this does not work.

This results in:

  • all speak blocks is converted into 1 single response like “This is the first one. This is the second one. This is the third one”
  • 1 Display response between user interactions means subsequent display block override previous one. It results that only the last one is displayed.

if you want to response with multiple displays in a single response, you need to use APL Pager. APL Pager works like slideshow.

There’s a demo for APL Pager in market place.

However, this demo only change multiple display responses and does not speak for each display. sorry I don’t know much about APL and I don’t have any further infos.

@Nicolas is there any good examples for APL Pager with speakItems? :eyes:

APL Ninja is a good place for that: https://apl.ninja/
