speakers are not announcing scores


Norma A. Boge
 

I use Amazon smart speakers. It is more difficult to get scores than it used to be. I am able to get in-game scores but I have to be creative when asking. For example, if you can’t get the score using one of the team names, use the other team. Or use both teams, i.e. “what’s the score of the Dodgers Braves game?” I don’t know why it became more difficult to get the scores, but they are available. Also, and I haven’t done this, you may want to find a skill to enable which will make scores easier to get. HTH Norma

Ah yes, thank you for the source! I would thank, the smart speakers would not want this to be taken away after, all they use is a way to sell the speakers! Cheers Heather

Originally, I thought the system was having problems or down, as I said in a message on Saturday, but now I think that it may be that the service has been discontinued. It may be necessary to find another source of information. Did you look at the web site I gave? Since this information is publicly available and not proprietary, I still wonder if there is a problem with the system because I don't know of a reason why the information would be made unavailable on the site used by assistants. But for now, finding another source may be the only solution.

They are still not giving college scores from last week. Note Echo is doing better than google. Google just said I do not under stand. She is pretty stupid lately; she does not understand a lot of things these days. But they will not give scores, only where the game is going to be played and the time; what gives? I still have a theory that the college league had something to do with this. It worked just fine beforeOctober. The NFL did not have any issues yesterday with giving scores. Cheers Heather

Eye Note is available for Android, and it is free.

Check it out.

Will be watching Broncos tomorrow.

Football is my go to distraction from all the craziness going on here in our country and all over the globe.

That's what keeps you young dear sis! The tsunami did spring up, and we're
now 5&0 in the positive win column.

I had thought that the 49ers would smoke the Dolphins for lunch; hmm, the
Dolphins had their masks on and were pretty good at countingout the numbers.


It's Broncos tomorrow at 3:00 P.M. MT; we'll be in Foxborough, yikes, the
Broncos are on a permanent vacation at least this year.

The Eye Note sounds interesting; perhaps some sweet day, it will be ported
over to Android. Hopefully, it won't cost two arms, five toes and a few
bone shanks; else, its kite won't fly in Androidville!

We can take a breather next week, as the hawks have a by week.

BTW: There is a very good bill identifier for iOS. It is called Eye Note. Even tells you if it is the front or back of the bill.

Sis Holly, I've had NO PROBLEMS getting real NFL game scores throughout this
day. All My Shiny Android toys announced game scores when asked in their
clear British-accented voice. Right now, I am pinned knee deep to the Sea
Hawks. It's proving to be a hard one, but there will be a tsunami and we'll
knock off the Vikings!!

Siri is not announcing the scores either. I just asked her what the score
was in the Raiders/Kansas city game, and she just said the time the game
started.

Before today, she would always tell the current score.


Carolyn Arnold
 

Yes, she did. I hadn't checked for a while, but she used to
tell scores. She did bring up the net for Texas University
for me.

OK, you're right, but Siri did bring up the net site, so I could read on the screen.

And with my iPhone, I just say to Siri, what's the Astro's
score; or what are their ratings in the league - so far
she's always told me.

Heather, I only follow basketball, American football and
baseball.

Whenever I need the scores for a particular game, I would
invoke the wake-up word; then I'd say something like:
"Score of X&X Game, where X&X equals the name of the team."


Example: I'm in both Broncos and Seahawks country. My
question would be worded like this after waking up my toy:
"Score of Seahawks Game." I always get a response.

Please note that I'm in My Shiny Android Toys World. As
such, I use either GoogleAssistant or my GoogleHome Smart
toy! Hope this helps somewhat.

Sincerely,

Please help me a bit if you can. When was the game played this year? I
asked because I got scores to an OU/Texas game back in December 2019.
Again, I'm not actively monitoring college football due to Covid19 issues.
That said, I do love college football and hope to listen to a game or two
soonest.

I'm not sure I know what I'm doing right or wrong, but I'm able to grab info
from all my Shiny Android smart toys with no problems.

As Gene pointed out, there may be a glitch of some kind on a temporary
basis; such glitches can be regional although I have no data to back up my
thinking in this regard.

Heather, I haven't tried out my toys for college football; I've not been
able to monitor much of what's going on in that world for the most part.
Typically, I would follow Indiana University Bloomington, or a Big10 Game of
some kind. Why? I am an IU alumnus! I'm a tad too slow keeping up with
which college conference is playing football, which ones are waiting till
Spring 2021, etc.

For NFL, I am able to GET THE SCORE of any game in progress no matter where
it's played. The examples I shared were for games that had already taken
place. At 11:00 A.M. Mountain Time, I plan to listen to Jaguars/Texan game,
but I will frequently check scores of other games around the league. I'm
paying particular attention to the Chiefs and Raiders and sort of wonder why
I have not chosen to listen to that game.

When my teams are not playing, I pick a game at random from the available
list. Sea Hawks pitch against The vikings today at about 6:20 P.M. MT; I'll
have my daily driver toy in Airplane mode so no calls prey on my attention.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado

We'll see what happens regarding the digital assistant problem. Meantime, here is a site with yesterdays scores.
https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/college-football-scores-ncaa-top-25-rankings-week-6-no-5-notre-dame-no-8-unc-hold-off-feisty-opponents/live/
There is a small article and then the scores are given below. The article contains some scores but I think more are presented below it. I haven't looked at the site in general. I found it by searching for college football scores October 10. If you have trouble finding scores for other days, let us know.

There are so many sources of information on the Internet that if one isn't available for some reason for a popular activity such as this, it is very likely another will be found that is either as good or rreasonable.

It may be that this has changed. it may also be some sort of technical
difficulty. People are used to services relying on the Internet to be
reliable. That doesn't mean that one should jump to conclusions when
something may just be down.

I did a search for something like no scores for college games using alexa
and got no results in the first roughly six result links I read. I also did
a broader search for something like no scores for college games using voice
assistants. Again, I got no results in something like the first six. You
would expect that if a major change had occurred, stopping access, that it
would be a major news story. College sports are big news. Seeing nothing
makes a major change even more unlikely.

Of course, something may have happened but at this point, from what I didn't
find, it appears unlikely.

But they do not give the current scores like they used to, just the times of the games and who is playing who. So I just asked the score of the ou texas game and they said the game was at  11 am. Today, when they should say say the played texas and the won and the final score. They have lsu playing the game last week instead of the game agains Missouri beat lsu 45 41. All 3 speaker systems do not have the scores’ current scores. SO something is up with this. I do not need last week’s scores, I want today’s scores. Heather
