Audio Name CompressionType

Parameter group

Application Server Interface

Access level


Possible values





Specifies whether audio names are recorded compressed or uncompressed, when using the RecordAudioName state table action.

Set this parameter when you install Blueworx Voice Response, and do not to change it afterward. This precaution prevents you having some audio names that are compressed and some that are uncompressed on the same system. It also helps Blueworx Voice Response to search more efficiently.

An uncompressed audio name occupies five times more disk space than the same audio name does when compressed.

If much interference exists when the audio name is recorded, you might find that compressing the audio name results in a poor quality of playback.

If you want to change this parameter from its default setting, ensure that all your custom servers that use the CA_Get_Audio_Name_Info subroutine can process a returned AUDIO_NAME_INFO_ST structure in which the compression_type field can have any valid value. If you do not, the data returned will be corrupted.

Note: Do not change this parameter from its default setting if you are using the DirectTalkMail feature of DirectTalk for AIX Version 2.1.

Restart your Blueworx Voice Response system after changing this parameter.
