How long can I record using the <record> tag?

Post by support »

The VoiceXML Platform software does not set a limit on record time. At some point you are likely to run into problems, most likely because the script or the application server receiving the binary data times out. We've tested <record> with audio of over 30 minutes.

The Programmer's Reference Guide lists the DEFAULT maxtime attribute as "60s" (60 seconds). However, that does not limit what you can set for the maxtime explicitly. To record longer audio segments, set the maxtime attribute.

For more information, see <record> in the Programmer's Reference Guide.
