Capture the whole sentence in Alexa



Hi everyone,

I want to know if there is a way, in Alexa, to capture what the user says, the whole sentence.
For example an user says “The cat is on the table”, is there a way to get all the string?

Thank you.


Hi @UmbertoTruscello,

Unfortunately, Alexa does not provide the raw transcript of what the user said.

However, there is a Search Query (AMAZON.SearchQuery) slot type that can be used:

It’s not ideal, every utterance needs to contain a so called carrier phrase like “search for”, but it’s a good start.


Hi jan,
thank you for your prompt reply.
It’s unfortunate that alexa doesn’t provide the entire transcript, it would be really helpful in some cases.

Thank you again. :slight_smile:
