  • Due to language model size, when Japanese is enabled PureCloud currently allows English as the only other language in the org. To request Japanese language support for your organization, please contact PureCloud Customer Care.
  • Support for Thai is limited and under active translation, but will be generally available in a future release.
  • For information about enabling beta languages, contact Customer Care.

Keep in mind the following:

  • ASR and TTS are provided by proprietary technology. PureCloud does not currently support third party vendors. 
  • PureCloud's IVR system audio files are contained in a library of provided prompts that can be used "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 PureCloud.

Sublocale support

PureCloud supports specific dialects with ASR and TTS for spoken words. However for written words, all varieties of a given 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.
