Alexa Echo as Bluetooth Speaker for TTS on Raspberry Pi

Has anyone successfully configured a bluetooth speaker for TTS messages from their Raspberry Pi? Seeing as how I can’t seem to push notifications to the Echo, I figured I may as well try and use it via bluetooth.

You’d think this would be pretty easy, but I’ve been working on this for a handful of hours. My primary problem seems to be getting the RPi to even connect to the Echo via bluetooth. I’ve installed/uninstalled things so many times, I’m sure I’ve corrupted a bunch of stuff.

Anyone out there who has done this with success?

@pkozul had a page on github describing how to set it up. I haven’t gotten around to doing it yet. Just do a search for his name and you should find it.
