Create a bulk prompt import by uploading audio files in .wav format and, optionally, records in comma-separated value (.csv) format related to the .wav files. Format the data to comply with .csv syntax before uploading it. We recommend that you export the .csv from a spreadsheet instead of composing .csv using a plain text editor. When the spreadsheet saves a .csv file, it automatically inserts required quotes and commas. This process is less error prone than formatting records manually.

Note: When you perform the bulk import, select the .csv file and each included WAV file, not the directory location.

Architect supports the following columns in a .csv prompt file:

  • Name (required): The name of the prompt.
  • Type (required): Architect supports user and system prompts. The filenames are case-sensitive, and the correct syntax is lower case.
  • Description: A brief explanation of the prompt.
  • tts_[language code] (where language code is replaced with the appropriate language code):  The TTS of the prompt that will be converted to voice.
  • audio_[language code] (where language code is replaced with the appropriate language code): The name of the prompt .wav file resource.
  • text_[language code]: Import the text value for a prompt during bulk import.

A prompt name cannot:

  • Contain spaces or special characters
  • Begin with a numeric or special character
  • Include a name already in use

A prompt name can:

  • Contain letters, numbers, and underscore characters
  • Begin with a letter

Architect prevents you from creating a prompt that begins with a numeric or special character and prompts you with a message if the prompt name is already in use.
