    Avoiding the "I don't kn..." response from the node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2 contrib

    I just had someone on a Discord server suggest this to get around the Alexa response "I don't kn (Continues with the flow's confirmation)." issue. I am just cutting and pasting. I do not use Alexa to know anything about setting up Skills or anything else:
    you can side step that "i do not know..." response by enabling the skill "My Questions"
    a while ago, there was a commercial that was like "alexa, who is the best mom in the world" and she would respond with the custom response that you set
    basically i use this skill to say "okay" to a question i create
    and the question i ask is "when is high tide?" or something like that
    or the response is "checking" and i have her say the tide chart, or water temperature, or if the diguno is back in stock after some web scraping

    So anyone using Alexa on any regular basis can hopefully help from here. Yes, I have an Echo but only because it was under $10 USD and I use it for helping others.

    I do not see ‘’my questions’’ skill. Maybe this is a ‘’blueprint’’ feature. Didn’t tried it yet

          Of course that skill isn't in Canada, as usual!

            Here is what I was given for finding that skill:
            It's under skill blueprints and also called Custom Q&A it is weird getting it set up and finding it. I don't know how to search for it. But scrolling down the skills and games it is a big blue box.
