1. RECORD: Verify that the audio is being recorded correctly. Before posting to your application server, you can preview the recorded audio by using the <value> tag in a prompt. e.g.
Code: Select all
<record name="name" beep="true">
Say your name at the tone
I heard, <value expr="name"/>.
If your recording is getting cut off or clipped, check that the maxtime attribute of the record tag is set high enough. Also, ask your system administrator to check the silence threshold setting of the Plum Voice Platform. Depending on the audio characteristics of your telephone connection, you may need to lower this threshold.
2. POST: If you are posting audio data to your application server to be saved, your application server must accept:
3. AUDIO FORMAT: The audio data is always recorded as:
- format: headerless binary data
sample rate: 8 kHz
encoding: 8 bit u-law (mu-law) or 8 bit a-law coding, depending on the configuration settings for your PlumVP platform installation. Plum Voice Hosting uses the default setting, 8 bit u-law encoding.
In a <submit> audio data is posted as MIME type "audio/basic".
