Anyone else seeing issues with App Script? I am getting "Could not connect to server" errors when I try and run functions. 

I am shutting the Choice Eliminator Add-on down at the end of February. Google changed things when they launched the new Google forms, that have make it very unreliable. I have tried many different approaches to make it work better, but at this point I don't feel comfortable keeping it active.

I am shutting down the Choice Eliminator add-on unless someone wants the project. (Any Takers?) Since the launch of new Google Forms, the reliability has gone down, and dispute many approaches, I have not figured out a way to make it work better.

Does anyone know of a voice to text app that doesn't use Google's API?

The issue is that any content filter that use https inspection to log google and youtube searches breaks Google Voice Typing. According to Securly, the only solution is to add our domain to a forcesafesearch registry and in doing so we loose the ability to report and filter google and youtube searches for our entire domain.

I have gotten nowhere with Google's support on this, so I am now at the point where I am looking for alternative extensions or apps (that work on chromebooks) that do not use Google's Voice API to work.

Has anyone got Expeditions to work on a chromebook?

I have the app installed on the Chromebook, and it is on the same wifi, but it is stuck on looking for explorers/guide. I have other android devices on the same network and they work as expected.
