Phoneme is a an Alexa skill developed with Node.js that helps you practice your spelling. When you start the skill, Alexa will ask you for a difficultly preference, and then give you a word based on your spoken preference. The player can then ask for hints like a definition, sample sentence, synonym, or part of speech. When ready to spell, the player can recite the answer, which Alexa verifies. Phoneme can be used with or without a visual interface, but all of the interactions in this app leverage 'cards,' which provide a visual interface for devices capable of displaying the cards (like the Echo Show).
