  • Genesys legacy TTS and ASR only: Due to language model size, when you enable the Japanese language, then you cannot use any other language than English. To request Japanese language support for your organization, contact Genesys Cloud Customer Care. This limitation does not affect Genesys enhanced TTS.
  • Support for Thai is limited.
  • For more information about enabling beta languages, contact Customer Care.

Keep in mind the following:

  • Genesys Cloud's IVR system audio files are contained in a library of provided prompts that you can use "out of the box" or updated by the flow author. These prompts cover standard sets of data, including dates, monetary, numbers, ordinals, and some phrases used by features for error handling (speech recognition errors). 
  • Analytics and keyword spotting are not currently available in Genesys Cloud.

Sublocale support

Genesys Cloud supports specific dialects with ASR and TTS for spoken words. However for written words, all varieties of a specified language, such as US and British English, use the same UI localization. Currently, the default standard is the US format (for example, DD/MM/YYYY and 12-hour clock), but future releases will include support for various date-time formats and "start of week" settings applicable to various subregions.
