Series: About language support in PureCloud and Architect

Select a TTS engine and voice for a flow


Prerequisites

Note: The organization's default text-to-speech (TTS) engine is Genesys TTS. To access additional third-party TTS engines in Architect, first obtain them from the Genesys AppFoundry. Then, configure them in PureCloud. For more information, see About text-to-speech (TTS) engines.

You can map a text-to-speech (TTS) engine and voice per flow to use per language.

Note: Third-party solutions are not available in Architect secure call flows. Secure call flows only use the Genesys TTS engine.

Depending on when you create or update the flow, the system opens the flow with a TTS engine as follows:

Flow type TTS engine
Existing flow Genesys TTS.
Existing flow to which you add a new language The organization’s default TTS engine and voice, if configured. If no default TTS engine and voice exist, Architect automatically uses Genesys TTS.
New flow The organization’s default TTS engine and voice, if configured. If no default TTS engine and voice exist, Architect automatically uses Genesys TTS.

You cannot set a TTS voice per prompt; this option is only available on a per-flow basis for each supported language of the flow. At runtime, Architect uses the TTS engine and voice you configure for the flow.

  1. Create a new flow or open an existing one.
  2. Under Settings, click Supported Languages.
  3. Do one of the following:
  4. In the Text To Speech column for the supported language, do the following:
    1. Under Engine, select the TTS engine for the flow:
      • None: Select this option if the language does not have an available TTS engine or voice.
      • Default: To use the language’s default TTS engine configured for the organization, select this option. 
        Note: If the organization’s default TTS engine or voice changes, and you want existing flows that use this option to use the new default engine and voice, you must republish the flow.
      • Genesys TTS: To use the built-in Genesys TTS engine, select this option.
      • An installed third-party TTS engine: Select this option if an administrator obtained and installed the third-party TTS engine exists from the Genesys AppFoundry.
    2. Under Voice, select the voice you want to read the text to speech.
  5. Save the flow.
