Alexa Skills Kit Sound Library
Note: Sign in to the developer console to build or publish your skill.
The Alexa Skills Kit Sound Library provides a set of sound effects that you can use within your skill.
Use the Sound Library in your skill
To use these sounds in your skill, include the Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) <audio> tag in your full skill response. Enclose your SSML response within the <speak> tag. For example:
<speak> This is Alexa's regular speech, followed by the sound effect named Bear Groan Roar (1). <audio src="soundbank://soundlibrary/animals/amzn_sfx_bear_groan_roar_01"/> </speak>
Important: You can't use the Alexa Skills Kit Sound Library sounds in a progressive response
The following table contains all the available sound effects in the Alexa Skills Kit Sound Library, including the audio and the SSML code for each one. After you select a row in the table, you can listen to the audio for that sound effect and copy the SSML code. You can search the table or sort it by any of the available columns.
Important: You can use these sound files within a text-to-speech response that your skill sends to Alexa. You can also test the SSML for these sounds in the Test page in the Alexa Skills Kit developer console. You cannot download the files or access them directly in a web browser.
