can homeseer set off an alexa response

Can I have a scene in homeseer that would somehow set off an alexa skill?

for example if I have an alexa app that announces my blood sugar when asked (sugarmate) can I have a homeseer skill that would call on that alexa app to announce it? essentially I wouldn't need to voice prompt alexa homeseer would handle it.

Not sure if this is what you mean, but I have an old Android tablet running HS touch as a speaker client. The tablet connects to 'Alexa' via bluetooth. I send announcements using homeseer 'speak' in events.

You have to have a voice prompt, whether it be from you or from an HS Speaker client. There is currently no way to trigger Alexa skills or responses without that interaction.
