About intelligent prompts
As an alternative to TTS, Intelligent Prompts play back pre-recorded audio files that sound more similar to natural human speech.
They are also more dynamic, in that you can arrange them to be presented in a format that is specific to a certain region, such as a currency denomination or a date standard.
For example, you might need to specify Euros instead of Dollars, arrange the prompt so that the day is spoken before the month, or have a number spoken as an ordinal, where a number such as 21 is read back as "twenty-first".
Intelligent prompts can be used with the following types of items:
|Alphabetical characters||For example, "P".|
|Cardinals||Speaks a number as a quantity. For example, 1234 would be spoken as "one thousand, two hundred, thirty-four."|
|Currencies||Speaks a number as a specified currency denomination. For example, in the U.S. English (US-en) locale where dollars ($) are used, 11234 would be spoken as "eleven thousand, two hundred and thirty-four dollars."|
|Days||Speaks the specified day of the week. Days are numbered from 0-7, starting with Sunday. For example, 1 would be spoken as "Monday".|
|Months||Speaks the specified month. Months are numbered from 1-12, starting with January. For example, 5 would be spoken as "May".|
|Ordinals||Speaks a number as an ordinal. For example, 21 would be spoken as "twenty-first".|
