Alexa Skills Kit Sound Library

The Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) Sound Library provides a set of sound effects that you can use within your skill.

Use the ASK Sound Library in your skill

To use these sounds in your skill, use either Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) or Alexa Presentation Language (APL) for audio.

Play the sound with SSML

Use the <audio> tag to play the sound effect. Enclose your SSML response within the <speak> tag.

The following example shows how to include a sound effect in the SSML with the audio tag.

Play sounds with APL for audio

If you use Alexa Presentation Language (APL) for audio, you can use the Audio component to play sounds from the sound library. Set the source property to the URI for the sound you want to play.

You can also use the sound library within SSML in the Speech component.

For more about APL for audio, see APL for Audio Reference.

Available sounds

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.
