SVG to Alexa Vector Graphics Plugin

Alright, hey guys, Mark Phillips with SimpliSpoken back for another SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing. And today we’re talking about the two things. So the Alexa vector graphics format, which is a subset of the scalable vector graphic format, which is a format to describe the way that images look. And designers are pretty bullish on SVG. And so Amazon has their own version of SVG, that’s called the Alexa vector graphics format. And that format basically lets you describe what an image is going to look like in a set of simple properties and attributes in a format called JSON, which is basically a text based format to represent date. And so what you can do is, is describe data in that format. And then that will in turn allow you to use that and things like the Alexa presentation language. And so the second part of the topic today is about a gentleman in India who has released to the community, as we talked about yesterday, in GitHub, a utility that allows you to extend ink scape and export that as the Alexa vector graphics format. So Inc scape is a open source free tool for image editing. And it is sort of a competitor to some of the Adobe products that designers use. And it is a really nice tool. And in this tool, you can basically take your graphic design from the tool and export that to be available as a Alexa vector graphic. So again, another example of someone that is giving back to the community and contributing some valuable technology to the community that helps us all get better. And so kudos to the folks that did that. And I think considering using that if you’re especially for using an escape design surface is a big big win for the community. Alright, thanks. So I guess this is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing, please do hop over to the skill store and give us a good review
