Recording voice segments over the telephone

This does not always give the highest quality sound, and should be used for prototyping and testing rather than for production applications. To record via the telephone you use the Record_Comp or the Record_Uncomp voice applications supplied with the base Blueworx Voice Response system.

The segments recorded using Record_Comp are stored by default as compressed voice segments. The segments recorded using Record_Uncomp are stored by default as uncompressed voice segments.

The files for the applications are automatically imported into a directory at installation time, but, if they get corrupted by mistake, you can reimport them from /usr/lpp/dirTalk/sw/samples/BaseData.imp.

Before anyone can use either application, you must create an application profile that allows people to access it over the telephone. In the profile, specify the language in which you intend to record segments. Otherwise, the voice segments are stored in the wrong database. You can create an application profile for each application for each language you intend to use.

In addition, you will probably want to create additional voice directories. Otherwise, all of the voice segments can only be stored in the system directory. The Blueworx Voice Response for AIX: Application Development using State Tables describes how to create voice directories.
